A beautiful hand forged bench holdfast for use with standard 19mm holes, hit the top with a mallet to set it, tap the back to release it.

For effective clamping without rotation two points of contact are required, so either a single holdfast with a bench dog or planing stop, or two holdfasts. For unrestricted access to the top of the workpiece, use holdfasts to secure a batten to the bench and butt the workpiece up against it.

Ideal for use on thinner benchtops (dog holes can be relieved on the underside to reduce the effective thickness).

  • Maximum bench thickness / hole depth 1½"
  • Maximum clamping thickness: 120 mm.
  • Rod diameter: 17 mm
  • Dimensions: 290 x 200 mm
  • Made in Russia
