1. Conical locator is used for locating the workpieces having a cylindrical hole in the workpiece. The workpiece is found located by supporting it over the conical locator inserted into the drilled hole of the workpiece.

2. Vee locator is used for locating the circular and semi-circular type of Workpieces.

3. Cylindrical locator is used for locating components.

Having drilled holes. The cylindrical component to be located is gripped by a Cylindrical locator fitted to the jig's body and inserted in the drilled hole of the Component.

Diamond is also a hard material and good strength but at any situation it breaks then it become too costly to purchase. As compared to another tool.

The diameter of a Conical locator is gradually decrease towards the bottom side so it is easy to fix an object in considerable variation.

What is the difference between conical and diamond locator?

Why diamond locator not use? I think it's also usable in this situation.

The conical locator has a wide range of variation in diameter which can be held on so for this case it is suitable.
