I have to admit, I feel a little silly writing a review for what’s basically a heavy duty carpet pad. However, as a new woodworker who doesn’t have luxurys like a workbench with a tail vice and bench dogs, sometimes the little things can make a huge difference.
Using a router is a little difficult if your workpiece keeps sliding around, not to mention dangerous. This thing really solves the problem. Throw it on top of your tablesaw, put your workpiece on top of it, and go to town. It worked great for sanding and using my plunge router for doing edge profiles.
I only gave it 4 stars because hey, its just a piece of carpet pad really. However, it sure made my life a lot easier.
Note: This really isn’t for small pieces, only pieces with a large flat face. Its meant to replace a tail vice, not clamps.
