Chris Chris' Tips
Adjustable parallels are not generally used like the parallels you use in a vise.

Uses include:

  • Measuring the width of a slot; adjust the parallel so it fills the slot, then measure the parallel
  • Setting the angle on a sine plate or vise
  • As an adjustable gage block
  • For leveling or adjusting odd-shaped work pieces in a vise
