Z-bar fixture

Man, it sucks making z- bars. Trying to make clean repeatable cuts in tubing so the angles measure up nice was a pain in the ass with a chop saw and angle grinders.

Well, we finally have a Bridgeport in the shop so I made an adjustable fixture that just pops into the mill's vice. Now the angles will be much quicker to make exact... over and over.

up next, a rotating fixture to bypass the old slug-n-weld game?
