Rockler Hold Down Clamp, 5-1/2''L x 1-1/8''W Rockler Hold Down Clamp, 5-1/2''L x 1-1/8''W Rockler Hold Down Clamp, 5-1/2''L x 1-1/8''W T Track System Retro DIY Shelves | Hosey's Workshop
Rockler Hold Down Clamp, 5-1/2''L x 1-1/8''W
These Hold Down Clamps feature non-marring rubber tips that are ideal for working with soft woods, pre-finished panels, or anything that's already been prep sanded. The rubber clamp faces also help to grip the workpiece for better safety and accuracy. In addition, they have a wide aluminum body, allowing for maximum tension. Clamps include a 5-star knob and a 5/16" T-bolt designed to fit into T-tracks on drill presses, router tables and more. The Hold Down Clamp, 5-1/2"L x 3/4"W provides the same great features as the 5-1/2"L x 1-1/8"W version, but in a slimmer width and without the non-marring rubber tips.


Features:

  • 5-1/2" long x 1-1/8" wide
  • Crafted of solid anodized aluminum
  • Clamps material up to 2-1/2" thick
  • Rubber tips help grip and protect workpiece
  • 5/16" T-bolt is compatible with our Universal T-Track

Perfect for Drill Press Table
Used two of these on the drill press table I build and it holds the stock firmly for a no hands hold while drilling. I've also added these to my. table saw sled for safer cutting of small parts.

Rockler Hold Down Clamp, 5-1/2''L x 1-1/8''W
Great product. Especially like the simplicity. Other brands of hold downs have an additional cylindrical piece between the bar and the knob which also works but it is harder to set up. Simple wins out.

BEST ANSWER: 4 3/8 inches and 1 1/2 inch on the larger clamp.
Will these t bolts work in Incra's t track? I use 1/4" hex bolts now.
Robert T on Mar 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The part of the bolt that would be in the track, (a flat oval shaped pad on the end of the 1/4-20 threaded rod) measures 11/16 L x1/2 W x by 3/32 inch thick. I don't have an Incra track so I couldn't say if it will fit. If a 1/4" hex bolt head fits I suspect this would too. If not you could always use the hex bolt with this clamp arm.
what clamp is this ? it shows a handle hold down clamp in the second picture on the web site
STEVE B on Jul 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You need a grove for the bottom ( head of screw) to slide in. Ideal for holding a board tight to work surface when sanding or routing. You will find many uses as your skills improve. Suggest you buy at least two clamps.
Would this fit the t-tracks on a desktop shopbot?
A G on Oct 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It should. I worked at Rockler for a year and sold seneral of these for CNC machines. Including my own.
Can this clamp be used on a table saw in the miter bar slot by replacing the t-bolt with the screw in the miter bar hardware kit?
Bill W on Aug 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You could attach it to the miter bar with the right thread size and length. I have never tried this however and am not sure where the clamp pressure would be applied. It would need to be over some part of the miter unit to hold the work piece firmly. If the clamp is in the wrong position you end up pressing onto the table itself which wouldnt accomplish anything. No harm in playing though.
Will this clamp work with 1/4-20 hardware (T-Bolts and knobs)?
Brian on Jan 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not knowing exactly what you intend to clamp, I will give a conditional YES, this clamp will work with 1/4-20 hardware, with the caveat that it be light to moderate level of clamping. I tried it on my drill press system just to be sure and I was able to give sufficient clamping force to hold the object being drilled using 1/4-20 bolts and knobs. Due to the size of the slot in the clamp which is sized for 5/16 hardware a 1/4" flat washer between clamp and knob was necessary but otherwise everything worked just fine.
will these fit a kreg router tables' T track?
James K on Aug 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The tab that fits in the slot is 3/4 ths of an inch long. This is too short to work in my router table extension on my table saw. if the Kreg slot will take the 3/4th length, it should work. It works fine on my Rockler work table surface for which it was designed. Hope this helps.
Will these fit my 1/2 inch Jet drill press production table t slots?
Rob L on Sep 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Update:
I bought them anyway to see.
They kind of don'the fit any of my tools equally. I have a Canadian general 650 tablesaw, and this has the smallest t slot of any of my tools. It likely fits this the best as is.
The t bolt allows it to be inserted at any point along the track, turned 90 degrees, held and then locked. If not held it spins around until loose while you tighten at the top, and doesn't lock in place as they do in rocklers own track. (They insert lengthwise and snugly fit).
On my jet drill press, the bottom slot size is a full 1 inch, and I had to drill out washers to go above the t bolt, as the top t opening on the table was way too large to realistically balance the bolt in there. With the 1 inch washer above the t bolt, it works very well, and doesn't require the holding while tightening thing.
On my Laguna bandsaw, the depth of the t slot, while the same width as the drill press, is a lot shallower, so really, neither the washer solution or by itself worked very well on this one..One is too loose, and one jams up.
So.. hrm, I think I'd be better off figuring out a different bolt/washer combination and replacing the rocker ones, so they can be moved from machine to machine.. or just buy another couple for the saw, and leave the washers in place and dedicated to the drill press. Though it isn't too much bother to disassemble.
I don't have a lot of need for any on the bandsaw anyway, so that's fine.
