One of the most versatile tools in the shop is the Box Angle Iron, ideally suited for layout and inspection, for machine set-ups involving work of large size or complex design, and as an aid to machining small parts. Its unique construction combines the advantages of a right angle iron and box parallel in a single unit. The open sides vastly simplify clamping and also provide clearances for nesting work projections such as bosses and pads. Many shops take advantage of these design features by converting Box Angle Irons into special fixtures by incorporating plain or tapped holes, key slots, locating pins and stops. Due to the close size tolerances to which Box Angle Irons are manufactured, they are frequently combined for use as parallels.


Box Angle Irons are made of close-grained cast iron, thoroughly seasoned and carefully heat treated for maximum stability.
