Default question about machining a piston

Hi Guys
I need to machine valve clearance on some pistons. I'm using a Goodson UPV-35 UNIVERSAL PISTON VISE. Does anybody have experience with this vise? Or does anybody have any tips for me? I'll be using a manual milling machine and I was thinking about cutting it with a fly cutter...........Thanks for any input

That doesn't look like a very rigid vise. I don't know what kind of tooling you have on hand but I'd rig something up with V blocks before trying that vise.

Use the head with valves out to set head pitch on knee mill then a more rigid clamp setup for piston on the milling table. That way you know your angle is proper and things are more rigid. (Assuming it must be done with the pistons out of the engine)

WAY DOWN HERE ON LEVEL 7, HIDING FROM THE RADIATION.
