Te-Co’s Locator Master Jaws for single-station vise applications are said to be compatible with most vise systems. The jaws can be bolted to a vise, allowing the user to snap parallels in and out quickly and accurately, the company says. The jaws also have built-in workstop pins that can be pushed in and out to locate workpieces. The pins are labeled for repeat jobs.
The company also offers a complete line of parallel accessories that can be used in conjunction with these jaws.
