« Part 9: Fence Clamps Part 10 of Works for me series Part 11: Drawer Dividers »

My blog, “Works for me #9: Fence Clamps”, was about a number of uses I’ve discovered for fence clamps. Because of the positive responses to that blog, I decided to describe a couple of additional uses I came up with while building a small, portable table for a Bosch Colt trim router. (a blog on the table itself will be posted within a week or so.)
The photo shows a portion of the table and the fence to illustrate both ideas. I decided to make a simple. one-piece fence for the table, and one of a pair of MDF auxiliary fences is shown fastened to that fence with the clamps.
The second idea is the clamp shown holding the fence to the table. Two 3/8” rare-earth magnets were pressed into a hole in the center of each end to retain the clamps. The magnets avoid the clamps falling out, while making them easy to remove when needed for another purpose.

Another great idea, Dave. I sure hope Rockler is hooking you up with free fence clamps!!!! I’ve already bought a couple because of you!
