Lee Valley - Lee Valley Toggle Clamp Plate
Hold a workpiece anywhere you have a dog hole
Transform Your Toggle Clamps into Workbench Holdfasts
Lee Valley has put a new twist on the traditional holdfast by making a bench-friendly mounting plate for Bessey’s innovative auto-adjust toggle clamps (see our review in “Bessey – Auto-Adjust Toggle Clamp“, FWW #224). The plate is fitted to a 3⁄4-in.-dia. post. It works like a traditional holdfast, but instead of a hammer blow to wedge the post in place, you simply lock down the clamp lever to get the same effect. Plus, the 5-in.-long post increases the capacity of the clamps: To hold down thicker parts, you simply raise the post out of the hole. This ingenious and versatile system gives you the means to hold a workpiece anywhere you have a dog hole.
