Review of the Robitek clamp set for the Taig milling machine

Robitek sent me their clamping kit for review, you can check out their clamp kits, nuts and wrenches for the Taig mill on their website.

The clamps are well made, and the nuts fit the table perfectly. I like the idea of aluminum nuts, as they won't scratch the table slots. He peened the last thread so you don't screw the studs into the table. For the price an excellent set of clamping equipment, great if you are just starting out.

The clamping kit I received for review. They now sell a set that includes more parts, and stainless threaded rod instead of steel studs:

  • 3 - Washers
  • 2 - T-Nuts 1/4"-20tpi
  • 3 - Nuts
  • 2 - 1.5" Studs
  • 2 - 2" Studs
  • 2 - 2.5" Studs
  • 2 - 3" Studs
  • 2 - 2.5" Clamps

Check Robitek's website for the most up to date pricing.

Holding down a block to the mill table. My own step blocks are shown in the picture.
A 1/4" endmill taking a .75" deep cut, the clamps held the work rigidly. What more can you ask of clamps?
