    Hold down quick clamp

    This was a really simple and quick build of a hold down clamp.

    I made it mainly for the use as a clamp on my bosch mitre saw, but it would work as a workbench or CNC hold down really well too.

    It is made from a scrap of oak wood and uses a simple cam action to grip stuff.

    It works way better than I expected. Build video showing exactly how I made it below.

    Cam action clamps are very advantageous in production work; either manual, pneumatic or hydraulic actuation. You did a good job for your shop!

    Thanks tool maker. It's already being real useful - Now I am using it I can't believe I went so long without a clamp for the mitre saw, so much safer/ more convenient.
