  • 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.

            Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

            I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

            Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

            That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

            Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
