I was in the shop yesterday working on a project and kept having to look for my clip board with drawings and dimensions or having to keep moving it when I move the saw fence so this simple idea came to mind,a few hours later problem solved.my clip board moves with the fence, when this is in the way I just pop it off.made from scraps.just thought id share this.

What a neat idea. Beats Post-It notes stuck to my computer keyboard. One of my kitties loves to steal sticky notes.

Upon examining the Clip Board Holder I am pleased to report:-
1. Very neatly conctructed
2. Cleverly designed
3. Looks very professional.
4. Good ergonomics
6. Selected grade scraps will chosen ( what is the majority of timber?

I also being a sticky beak noticed a battery drill and now also ask
1. What model is it
2. How many years have you had it
3. How much work does it do
4. What are the capacity of the batteries

Wait here is more
1. Why do you have a metal push stick
2. Whilst on the heavy metal trip what are your thoughts on the expanding roller racking

Thats enough FBI ing for now!

This is pretty cool, I can see it is very versatile in its construction. Great idea… well done.

nice idea, looking closer at it believe I have the same fence as you do, Just put a piece of wood on the saw side today, never thought about the other side. I like the tee slots on the top as I have some hold down roller that will bolt to the top.

Definitely have to give this idea some merit. Using post it notes or other paper, tend to get lost. I always liked using a clipboard so this may work out. Thanks.
