I’m considering a project where I could see the advantage of using one or two hold-downs rather than clamping things to the edge of the top or using the dogs on the bench. I’m talking about traditional L-shaped steel units tapped into bench holes.
Trouble is: I’ve got all rectangular bench dog holes that are angled at 2 degrees towards the vise. I can’t see getting enough friction to make the thing stay put. I’d rather not drill new holes in the top.
Does anyone have ideas for the round peg in the square hole? Thanks, Skip
