Parallel Sets

Parallels are rectangular metal blocks made of tool steel, stainless steel or cast iron, having 2, 4 or 6 ground or lapped surfaces. They are used when machining with a milling machine, drill or any other machining requiring holding the workpiece in a vise or clamp - keeping the object in a horizontal position.

Parallels are processed in pairs so that the adjacent surfaces have the same dimensions. Washers of various sizes and thicknesses are available, allowing them to be stacked or used to hold a workpiece without a flat profile.
