I had a need, so I filled it.
I had some items that the stock hold-downs supplied with my CNC Router just couldn’t handle.
The main need was to be able to secure items that had irregular sides as well as items on a diagonal.
Here’s what I came up with – maybe it will spark some ideas with other CNC owners as well as those that own t-slot style tables.
Pretty simple really. It’s just some hardwood pieces with a slot mortised in them – I then can use 7/16” bolts mounted upside-down to secure them to the table at pretty much any angle I need.
A couple of wedges just tapped in REALLY secure the item to be worked on – there is NO way that piece will move without removing the wedges.
Easy to make and less than a buck for all the hardware – bonus!
If anyone else has any ideas for this type of table I would be very grateful!
