T-nuts are designed to work inside of T-slots. ANSI/ASME B5.1M defines T-slot size limits. See Also ISO R286.
Rotary T-nuts are available that can be inserted from the top of the table instead of at the end.
Strap clamps are a popular way of holding large or oddly-shaped parts that may not fit in a vise or other workholding devices. Strap clamps are often used in conjunction with serrated step blocks (shown below).
Serrated Step Blocks
Serrated stop blocks can be used with serrated strap clamps, or with other step blocks.
When using a strap clamp, it should be level with the surface of the workpiece, and the stud should be as close to the work as possible.
Machine vices are among the most versatile and commonly used workholding devices found on milling machines.
Parallels are precision ground bars that are usually used in pairs to lift a workpiece off the bottom of a vice. They are often sold in sets of various heights. There are a variety of parallel types including thin and wavy varieties.
Although normally thought of as workholding devices for lathes, chucks make convenient fixtures for round workpieces. Lathe chucks may be used, but low-profile chucks are made especially for mounting on milling machines.
Chucks are often used on rotary tables and indexing heads as well.
