An angle plate is a work holding device used as a fixture in metalworking.
The angle plate is made from high quality material (generally spheroidal cast iron) that has been stabilized to prevent further movement or distortion. Slotted holes or T bolt slots are machined into the surfaces to enable the secure attachment or clamping of workpieces to the plate, and also of the plate to the worktable.
Adjustable angle plates are also available for workpieces that need to be inclined, usually towards a milling cutter.
Angle plates are used to measure and hold various workpiece whilst being worked upon
