Haas Automation produced this excellent video on how to cut soft jaws for turning operations. The video covers boring, grooving and deburring of soft jaws, after describing how to find the the right jaw height, jaw position and clamping pressure.

Fundamentals aren’t just for first-timers. Even those who are so experienced that they practice 80 percent of fundamentals can still benefit from a refresher on the remaining 20 percent. For that reason, this video is worth the time (under 15 minutes) for practically anyone who uses soft jaws for workholding.
