Along with a bunch of other free tools, I was given a Jorgenson 3 inch cast-iron hold down clamp, it even came with the original product brochure! Only problem is, it seems to be missing the mechanism that does the “holdy-downy” part…
Anybody know what I’m missing, and or how to fix it? I checked the brochure for an idea, but it didn’t help much.

Don’t know for sure, but it looks to me like a lag bolt would get screwed into the work surface, the head left proud, and the hold down slips over. Possibly some type of pin through the two small holes, to keep it from slipping out?

Other thought, I have only dealt with them once, but Pony Tools/Jorgenson’s customer service was first rate. They sent me replacement parts for a faulty clamp, no questions asked. Have you tried sending the pics over to them?

Looks like something you would attach to a work bench

I’m fairly sure this clamp is at least 20yrs old, but I’ll give them a call!

They still make them (e.g. http://www.amazon.com/1623-HOLD-DOWN-CLAMP-3-Inch/dp/B0000DD1RD). You’re missing the stud, which is basically as ste6168 described it.

Just found this online. A lag bolt, a nut (or 2), a large washer, and a cotter pin. A trip to the BORG and you would be back in business, for a couple bucks, max.

Thanks! That looks easy enough to make.

I have two of these. Put several screw-in threaded inserts into my work bench that accepts a bolt with a head that fits into the base of the vise. I took the clamp to a hardware store to get a bolt with the proper size head. They work well this way and gives a lot of flexibility in locating them on the work bench for various projects.
