Today I made myself a couple of cam action bench hold downs.
I started with a piece of 8/4 beech, and drilled a 1/2" and a 1/4" through hole.
The gap was laid out.
The dado head was raised to the right height, and a stop was clamped to the fence.
The bandsaw made the kerf.
A stop was clamped to the mitre gauge and two heels were defined.
The block was then moved and the other two were cut out.
The waste in the middle was then removed.
The bodies were then parted in two on the mitre saw.
