Default "What is it?" #142

This one is simple but I took the picture at a odd angle just to make it more interesting. I'm sure a lot of you people use these and will have no trouble tell us what they are and how they are used.

Again the pencil is for size reference only and not part of the answer.

For 100 points and being the winner of #142 be the first one with the correct answer.

As a bonus the first one to post a picture of one of these in use will get 100 points.

Good luck,

Ed

Hold Down Clamps
I build many,many jigs e.g., router pocket hole jig,45 deg.slot cutter with a 3" blade(s),drill press jigs,band saw jigs,many ,many templets ,just a quick way to hold down parts and make the same item over and over that come out the same way ea. time and I still have all parts on both hands after 40 years of wood working.

Just a safe way to work with wood and high power tools in the shop.

I know everyone here likes to have fun so here is something to try. Take your bathroom scale and grab it and squeeze... harder harder.... now what was your maximum number of pounds (US)? OK now go out and put the scale on your router table and push down on it like you were trying to hold it to the table.... how many pounds this time?

Now on to the subject of the toggle clamps. The models vary but you will find most are rated in a "holding force" measured in pounds (US). Light duty models maybe 60 pounds or 100 or ?? and the heavier duty ones will be up at around 700 + pounds.

Anyone here spin the dial up to that sort of number???

What this is leading up to is that we have a winner for #142 but I wanted to make you do a little thinking first before we got to this point.

Winner!

BOBJ3 you have done it! You also posted a picture of a jig using the clamps so you get those points too. Great Job! So do you get any snow out where you live to try the sled out??? Sorry bad joke, but nice sled.

Reible,Thanks

Aspen,CO. is a bit cold this time of the year and I have about 6ft of snow in the front to use the sled on when I'm not using it on the router table.
Works great for the grandkids. hahahahaha

Have a good one
