    Best most simple tool in my shop

    There must be somthing in the air but seems workbench fever is in full swing.
    After i have had my bench for some time, this past weekend i finally settled on popping my bench dog holes into it.

    Finally i got to use an absolutely amazing simple tool. IF you dont have a set I can only say you dont know what you are missing.

    The Gramercy hold fasts.

    These hold fasts are absolutely amazing in how well they work how easy they are to use, simply no words to explain just how effective these are. If you are a flatworker and use you workbench effectively you gotta have these.

    Fixed the link. For some reason it did not cut and paste properly, oh well technology.

    Yep I love mine, you would have to take them from my cold dead hands!

    I did make a pad for mine, as they can dent softer wood, as they do hold quite well.

    I bought a cheap version at a local store and have been amazed how often I use it. Easy to clamp it down and easy to loosen it up.
