Chris Chris' Tips
You can set the Sine Vise to a precise angle using our Space Blocks.

The Sine Vise Height Table shows how to set the sine vise.

There are tables available that tell you how tall a stack of space blocks you need for a particular angle with a sine vise or sine bar. But nowadays, it is probably easier to find a calculator that has a sine function than the appropriate table. (There is such a calculator built into Windows--switch to scientific view.)

Here is how to use a calculator to calculate the stack of space blocks you need:
1. Enter the angle in decimal degrees (for example 15.2).
2. Press the SINE (or SIN) key (result 0.26218).
3. Press the X (multiply) key.
4. Enter the roll spacing (for example 5).
5. Press the = (equal) key (result 1.31095).

The following blocks are included this set:

.050, .060, .0625, .070, .080, .090, .100, .101, .102, .103
.104, .105, .106, .107, .108, .109, .110, .120, .125, .130
.140, .150, .160, .170, .180, .190, .200, .300, .400, .500
.600, .700, .800, .900, 1.00 (2 ea.)
