Default Installing Kreg Clamp Plate into your worktable

I stumbled upon this guy's video of installing a Kreg clamp plate into his worktable. Also, he has a few ideas that some may find helpful to incorporate into their worktable. I like the way he thinks.
And he has a fairly keen sense of humor. When I get a chance, I will watch a few more to see what else he has to show and tell.


That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Way cool. This could go into the outfeed table, which I sometimes use for assembly, or in my workbench.
MT Stringer and Shop guy like this.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Put one of these on the backside of my router table. Works great!

.. The advantage to a nice sized table top for the router is having it double as an assembly table.

I subscribed to David Stanton's YouTube channel a few months ago and enjoy almost all of what he does. And, yes, I like his sense of humour.

I have one mounted on a thick sheet of ply, that I set on sawhorses when I'm doing face frames. Mines wasn't blue, but plane steel colored, and I think mines is a little larger. But it does work like a champ, with the special clamp!!

Orginally there were two sizes IIRC. something like a 3x5 which is what I used, and the larger one above that Lee demonstrates..pretty much plain steel. The blue came later I think. Its like having an extra set of hands!!

I have both the small one and the larger (8x8?). I haven't installed the larger one yet. But I did make one out of some aluminum plate left over from a previous project. Not very pretty, but it works.

The smaller Kreg plate is mounted on a portable work table (about 16 x 32 inches). Very handy to have around.

Default Thanks for the reminders of a good idea

I am going to add that system to my Paulk workbench. There are times when that Automaxx clamp is just the thing. I have 3 of the Festool clamps and I do love then alot but the Automaxx is a little different in the way it holds.
