Reading Bob Morris' post on the vacuum clamp that he made, reminded me of the vacuum clamp that I use.

Dean Bielanowski has written a thorough review of this product here. It’s inexpensive, works exceptionally well, has no moving parts and leaves no marks on your workpiece. As long as you have a shop compressor, it’s the best way I know of to hold your workpiece firmly in place for planing, scraping, sanding, drilling, routing and any other situation that is required to prevent your work from sliding across the bench.

Distribution is fairly good in the US for this product, so I highly recommend you get one.

Here is the manufacturer’s very basic website for additional information.

I use a mat for my routing and it has worked flawlessly. I got it from, Rockler when on sale.

I’ve never seen anything like that, Don. That’s really cool. I use a mat as well, but things slide a little here and there. That’s a cool idea. Thanks.
