When working with and designing jigs or fixtures with locating pins, proper alignment is crucial to ensuring smooth operation and repeatable results. This episode will address a few of the most common solutions to alignment concerns for locating pins. If you’re unfamiliar with the basics of locating pins and workholding concepts, check out the previous episodes in this series to get up to speed.

Watch the video below to learn about ways to counteract this issue, and to minimizing workpiece binding.
