A week ago SERGE/Bricofleur posted a hold down that I thought was a handy device .
Thanks for the inspiration Serge !
Well this is my version which is different in several ways .
I used wooden springs with sandpaper pads to hold the material being cut on both sides of the saw blade and also added asub base on both sides of the blade temporarily screwed to the sled base I also designed a quick release for the bolt that attaches the hold down lever to the sled .(pic 4 and 5 ) it’s made from a little piece of old dowel saw blade and it engages in the bolt thread and eliminates the wing nut making it easier to install or remove the lever and no loose parts .
Here is a little video which explains it better then words could here . a new video with the update
Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think .
