Mid-week tool sneak peek no. 12

October 5, 20110 Comments

Building jigs and fixtures is a genre of woodworking all it’s own. Building them for a workbench is a specialty within that genre. And building them so they work is an art more than a science.

Lee Valley’s Bench Anchors helps to make that art form a little bit easier for everyone to enjoy.

I recently featured a pair of Bench Anchors in my Benchcrafted Moxon Vise video that I used to attach it to my workbench without having to grab extra clamps or a tail vise.

Strong and easy to use, they can be quickly incorporated into just about any workbench jig design and idea you’ve thought about, but weren’t sure if you’d need clamps that could get in the way to hold them in place.

* Fits in a 3/4″ diameter hole (same size as the Veritas bench pups).
* Can be attached vertically, horizontally or almost any angle you desire.
* All-steel construction
* Can be used in through holes 5/8″ – 1-1/4″ deep (depending on material).
* Accepts common 1/2″-13 threaded bolts to secure jigs.
