Our new adjustable bench hold-down works on practically any bench over 1 1/2″ thick and only requires a 3/4″ hole to engage the shank. The unique feature of this hold-down is the adjustable arm. By sliding this in and out, up to 6″ of adjustability can be had. From the shaft, you can clamp from 9″ to 15″ away. This gives you great clamping range, and means you don’t always have to line up your work underneath the end of the holdfast, which is a constant effort.
Based on a turn of the 19th century design, this one is very solidly made and features a hard maple pad on the end, so you don’t need to always have an extra pad to keep from marring your work.
