    Looking good Niki. I love the "action" shot (first pic in the second post).

    Thanks Niki, I believe those hold downs are easily adaptable to a bench with bench dog holes in them too.
    Thanks for sharing and saving us money.
    cheers

    Thanks, I think I know what I'll be making this weekend.
    One of my workbenches has a fairly thin top and no overhang on the edges. These hold downs should be perfect for that one.

    great money saving idea

    As a retired toolmaker I love all kinds of simple ideas.
    As a piece of advice to anyone clamoing in this fasion,
    please always use thicker tail piece on your clamps.
    In other words make sure that the part of the clamp
    that comes into contact with the piece you are holdind
    down is contacting it with the forward most part.
