Safety and accuracy
Get more accuracy and repeatability by using stops and hold downs.
I just keep a variety on hand, and on nearly all my jigs. It also makes your work safer.

Addition of a T-Track system, of which this is a part, provides extra utility to a traditional workbench. All of the pieces are durable and well made and can be as extensive as you wish. This comment also applies to the other system components

Rockler Hold Down Clamp, 5-1/2''L x 1-1/8''W
BEST ANSWER: 4 3/8 inches and 1 1/2 inch on the larger clamp.
What are the dimensions of the T-part of the bolts?
joe bt on Jan 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: THe "T" section is too wide to fit into the track. It has to be ground down to fit into the track. Also ordered extra "T" bolts tand they too are too wide to fit into the track.
Will these work with the CNC Piranha XL?
Eric H on Dec 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they work well with the Piranha series of CNCs.
Will these work to hold down a 16" scroll saw on a bench top?
JANE M on Jun 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you have tracks for the T bolts to fit into, and I am not shure how thick the base is or if it has an edge on the bottom of scroll saw to clamp onto, you could get the tracks and either clamp the track to you bench or screw it to your bench. hope this was helpful.
What are the approximate dimensions of the clamp?
A shopper on Apr 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The blue clamp part is 3-3/4" long. Nice for small parts and a good addition to the larger clamps. Get a pair, at least.
will these t bolts fit a 5/8" slot on a drill press?
William W on Mar 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I add a flat washer around the bolt to catch extra material on sides of slots, with my drill press
Is this a 5/16 - 18 or 24 pitch thread?
Matthew R on Nov 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Matthew, they are 18 pitch. Just ran out and double checked with a thread guage to be sure.
Will this t bolt fit in a 20 series 8020 extrusion?
A shopper on May 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sorry can't help here Iam not familiar with the 20 series 8020 extrusion, the folks at Rockler can help answer that.
How tall is the 5 star knob on this clamp? I want to use it in my drill press table, but dont want my circle cutter bar to hit it.
Glen K on Jul 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The top of the black knob is approx 1.960 from the surface of my drill press table when nothing is under the clamp. The included bolt sticks up 2.90 inches from the top of my table
Will this bolt work with a 0.5" dia 14° dovetail groove (0.375" depth)?
Scott B on Mar 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: As long as the opening is 5/16" it should work. They were made for a "T" slot but dovetail could work.
Can I get replacement tips for these? Mine are wore out.
Magick E on Jul 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry, these tips are applied by dipping the ends into a coating. You could achieve much the same results by using a similar product, such as Plasti Dip.
