* Maximum hex end protrusion occurs when the front sliding jaw (closest to hex end) is fully open, while the rear sliding jaw (furthest from hex in) is fully closed. If this is undesirable for the application, e.g. a pallet changing machine, avoid this by placing a spacer block between the rear sliding jaw (furthest from hex end) and the center jaw. In single station configuration, fix the rear sliding jaw, not the front sliding jaw.
