Veritas Hold-Down Clamp
The Veritas Hold-Down can clamp workpieces to a bench or any thick enough surface where a 3/4" hole can be drilled.
Exceptionally high clamping forces can be obtained with this hold-down for two reasons:
Firstly, with the arm free to pivot independently, all levered forces are exerted downward, without any losses due to horizontal slippage from the canting action of the hold-down post.
Secondly, the fine barb-shaped grooves on the post resist upward forces, yet still allow easy entry into a hole. The long, low-profile arm is unobstructed at the clamping end, allowing good access to work from all sides.
The 10" hold-down post gives you 8" of clamping capacity, matching the 8" throat capacity.
Used vertically in the top of a bench, or horizontally in a side skirt. Clamping forces are infinitely variable by tightening the Machined Brass large clamping knob.
The arm is made from forged steel; the other components are made from steel, aluminium alloy and brass.
Please Note: For use in holes where through travel is limited, a retrofit shorter hold-down post is available separately. At just 5-1/2" long, it provides about 4" of clamping capacity.
