Really neat clamping going on there, no?

Found here at Bar-Plate but im sure there's other sites out there.

Ok, they seem to cost a good quoin err coin. But....

Neat idea, might have to take a better look at that soon. Thanks for posting, Ronnie!

I frequently use a wedge strategy to hold parts down when the whole top surface has to be cut. Always works.
