Project Description:
I searched the web for tools to hold small parts while routing and couldn’t find anything so this is what I came up with. I used toggle clamps with 200# holding force. I drilled multiple mounting holes to move the clamps around for different configurations and added a strip of sandpaper for extra grip. I got the clamps at MSC but they are available from many sources and have different styles with different “under the clamp” clearances. Rather than buy multiple clamps, I made riser blocks for use when I have thick pieces to hold.
