Here's the best explanation of use I can find on this topic. The
Travers machine manual is... not much ;) Interestingly, unless the
work is mounted on a larger vise or set-up fixture, mostly all the
vertical operations are drilling. In one instance, @1:55, they use a
step block. I guess they expect you to use that. My only other
suggestion is - why can't you mount the milling cutter in the "lathe"
spindle? Use the machine like a horizontal mill. That will get you
close to the vise. -Arthur
