I am a novice woodworker, with a very small shop area. I was finally fed up with using a piece of plywood over my table saw table as my "work bench". I've recently constructed a nice, stand-alone bench with two Jorgensen wood vices Jorgensen 41012 Woodworkers Vise mounted to a table top consisting of three pieces of 3/4" plywood laminated together and topped with 3/16" masonite to form the work surface. I drilled 7/8" holes on 6" centers along the axes of each vice, ostensibly to use with bench dogs, but, after hearing about these Jorgensen holdfasts, I thought I'd get a couple to use in the bench dog holes as well. I've never used a holdfast before, and, more than anything I guess, I was just curious to see how they worked. I ended up ordering one of the 4 1/2" versions and one of the 8" versions 8" REACH BENCH HOLD-DOWN CLAMP - JORGENSEN # 1716. They arrived a few days ago, and I've been playing with them ever since.

The 4 1/2" version I love! The finish is nice (powder coat?), and the feel is good. But what is most important is just how WELL the thing works! One firm tap with a rubber mallet about 30 degrees forward on the top curve clamps boards solidly to my bench. A light tap on the back immediately releases it. I've tried it with various thicknesses of wood. Up to 2 inches, it works spectacularly. Above 2 inches (I've gone as thick as 3 1/2 inches -- a piece of 4x4), it requires more force to set, and appears to damage the hole somewhat. I wouldn't recommend it for wood over 2 inches. For thicker material, you may have better luck with the larger 8" version.

After purchasing a pair of these i read in a workbench book that most of the current crop of clamps of this type do not work well. Both of these Jorgensen clamps work great. Put a board under the clamp and hit it 2-3 times with a mallet and the board is secured solid. To release, just tap on the back. My wife came in at some point and i had her try it. Though she is not very skilled at these carpentry matters, it worked! I suppose some clever blacksmith invented these shortly after the beginning of the iron age and they're still the best way to clamp stuff.

To anyone that does any woodwork with handtools knows you need a good workbench. This hold down is perfect for work with hand planes.
My order arrived on time and in perfect condition, it is already in action on my bench.
Great product and would recommend it to any and all Craftsmen.

This hold down is well made. It can definitely take a beating. However, if you have a normal work bench with a 3"+ top. Don't buy it. It just won't hold. I went ahead and bought the larger hold down which I don't really like because the shaft being octagonal chews up my dog holes a bit. I am now using the 4.5 on my sliding deadman. Works fine.

Some hold-downs require the pad to be ground down to a smooth finish in order to prevent marring the surface of the wood being held down (the line down the middle of the pad is a result of the mass production forging process, I'm told), but this one came with the pad already smooth and ready to go. A classic tool that I expect will last you years to come. Thanks!

These come in handy on large workbenches where conventional clamps are difficult to use. They can hold down your board in the middle of the work surface, where sliding C clamps and bench vice dogs are inconvenient. However, you are going to have to drill your workbench several times. Be ready to invest in a 3/4" boring bit.

Misleading picture and poor product. The picture shows "6 pack." It's just one. The third time I used it it snapped at the knuckle. I would not buy this product or order from this company again.

Customer service was quick and accurate. Shopping was quick. But the very first time I used it, it snapped in 2 right at the neck.
