When I recently picked up my used Woodtek Shaper, I grabbed anything near the shaper that looked like it might belong. I don’t think these are any part of a shaper though. I’ve seen these before, but I just can’t figure out what they are used for. They look like some kind of clamps. Anybody have any ideas?? I placed a quarter (25 cents) on top for scale. Thanks

Another shot. Everything is cast or steel….no rubber. The cast iron flat bar pieces are about 1-1/2” wide.

Looks like two old hold down clamps like the one in this picture:

They are clamps. The bottom of the threaded rod would either thread into a tapped hole in a jig, table etc. or they have a threaded t nut that would slide in a t track table.

Clamps they are! Surely not for my Woodtek Shaper though. I’ll run these back to the guy I bought the shaper from. Thanks for your help.
