This 0.50" dovetail fixture is utilized for milling and turning applications. It offers superior clamping strength while allowing access to five sides of the workpiece. The fixture comes with the four mounting bolts, one Dowel Pin for location. The optional base plug (which you can turn down to the size you need) is sold separately - see spare parts: RWP-208-Plug.

The standard RWP-018 is manufactured from 7075 Aluminum and anodized: Class 2 Type II.

Raptor Dovetail Fixtures are made to hold your part on four and five-axis CNC machines. The fixtures provide rigid clamping while exposing five faces of the workpiece - Most features can be completed in a single operation. Our unique Raptor Dovetail spring-loaded clamps require only 1/8" of material to hold the workpiece. That means less waste, easier prep and no distortion. You prepare all your parts with a single dovetail and utilize the same fixture for every part. Easy, strong and efficient.

* Typical workpiece size dimensions (L x W x H): From: 2.50" x 0.950" x 0.50" To: 4.75" x 4.75" 4.75"
