  • Bench vice

    I would like to find a dealer who handles hold down clamps for the top of benches.These are attached to the top of the bench so that the work piece is held to the top for mallet and chisel work.Thanks Al...

    Think what you are referring to is 'Toggle Clamps.' If so, Woodcraft stocks them in several sizes. You should be able to find them on Woodcraft's web site. If not, think their number is 1-800-535-4486, at least that's what I've got scribbled next to their name here.

      Al,
      I think yer talking bout a holdfast...

      apperently there are different types,
      i used the hammer in type, built like the number 7.. but here at this link is another one of a different design,,,
      http://www.rockler.com/ecom7/product...ilter=holdfast

      that link shows a holdfast forsale, not the tap in type, looks like the working end of a bar clamp...

      $24.00 each

      if your wood vise has a retractable dog on the outer jaw, check out the bench dogs and pups ... they dont crush your carving as bad....

          Veritas has a great one that I have been using for several years and love. It can be bought at Lee Valley or I believe Woodcraft has it as well.

          It has two different size, removable plates that can be inserted on the top for either small or large pieces. So far, I have only used the small one and I have done pieces up to 18 inches tall. I highly recommend.

            Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

            Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

            Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

            Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

            I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

            Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
