I always seem to have problems routing small pieces. I just can’t hold them tight enough. I saw something like this in Rocklers made of metal and plastic for $50. I thought I’d make my own with stuff I had around. It works great. It’s not metal but it’s sturdy and strong. Should last for my needs.

-- What to make next. Hmmm.

Very useful thing. I think I should make one for me as well.

That would have prevented the only BAD accident I had in the shop. I now use those wooden hand screw clamps.

I had one of the plastic ones years ago and liked it but as you say to replace $50 I think not .

I’ve been trying to use the wooden hand screw clamps but they seem to get in the way more than help at times for me.
Your wood version looks like the ticket to safety, nicely done.
