Jim, I think I did get the idea from FWW. I do use them for light stuff but I didn’t get the geometry right on the cam lever. My best one gets about 50lbs of preassure. If I did it again I’d use steel instead if aluminim and I’d beef everything up a bit. I saw a guy online that claimed he was getting about 200lbs of preassure.

Once I finish my bench I want to make one that will work in a dog whole as a bench hold down.

Oh, I used oak.
