Rockler Small Piece Holder

The Rockler Small Piece Holder keeps your fingers out of harm's way and securely holds your smallest workpieces while you machine them at the router table. In essence, it turns a small part into a larger part equipped with nice, comfortable handles. It's ideal for the short rail ends on very narrow doors and for small projects like toys, plaques and birdhouses. A variety of scrap blocks can be mounted to the clamp faces for thicker stock, special holding requirements, or to simply control endgrain blowout. The quick-release clamp screw lets you slide the holder open and shut in an instant for quick operation. Large, comfortable handles ensure precision and control.

  • Quick-release screw lets you quickly slide the jaws open and shut
  • Two adjustable pins hold the workpiece firmly against the table
  • Sacrificial pieces (not included) can be attached to the clamp faces to prevent blowout
  • Large handles for comfort and control
  • Knurled aluminum knob is tightened for a solid hold
  • Abrasive clamp faces prevent material from slipping

I have several projects that require free hand routing. I was wondering the best way to accomplish this safely. Now I am eager for the jig to arrive and get started.

Just the thing to hold a small piece for routing

I'm receiving a lot more small pieces and watching the video, I think this will help me on my routher table.
Jerry M on Jan 7, 2017
I hurt my fingers using my router and this tool is the answer
Ron O on Jan 4, 2017
Because of the good reviews!
AL the DIY Lumberjack. on Dec 28, 2016
To keep my hands from router bits and sanding wheels when working with small pieces.
I have another small piece holder (was not expensive, and does not even have a brand name on it) that I have rarely been able to use because it would not quite work for what I wanted to do (my needs were not ever that complicated to start with, either).
After reading about this one, and watching the how-to-use videos, I believe that it will fit all of my requirements.
John K on Dec 23, 2016
RODGER J on Dec 13, 2016
Worked great and keeps my fingers away from the router bit on small pieces. A must have for small parts to be routed on a router table.

Leslie A on Dec 4, 2016
This one has a method to use thicker material by being able to attach a stabilizer block on the other end and it has hold downs that hold the piece down on the table.

I like holding small things I'm happy to way it works
DENNIS O on Nov 20, 2016
I recently sheared of the top of my middle finger from a board kickback. The board cut across the finger. With this tool I would have been safer
Lawrence C on Nov 5, 2016
To keep my hands away from the router bit and to have more control over the piece. I wish it had a clear plastic piece that you could ride along the fence.

Why is this any better than a good parallel clamp, like a Bessey K Body or UniKlamp?
A shopper on Apr 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You COULD use a Bessey clamp or UniKlamp do the same things...but this jig simplifies the adaptation.
It's upright handles give you greater control and safety when handling a small piece.
The jig, in general, is designed for quick and safe locking of smaller work pieces without slipping.

I create a lot of small wood toys and other projects...products like this and the Grip-it push block have saved me a lot of time building jigs from scratch...and saved a couple of fingers as well ;-)
Would this work for belt sanding small pieces?
Steve H. on Feb 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: yes it would work. It is definitely a finger saver. You can better manipulate your work piece on the sanding belt depending how you place it in the holder and how you can maneuver around the belt and associated machinery.
Will it hold odd-shaped pieces or only straight rectangular items?
David W on Jul 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The jaws of this little "vice" are parallel. They do not angle to accommodate pieces that do not have parallel sides. Anything that will remain firmly grasped between parallel jaws will be good to go to your router or whatever power tool you are using. You can buy a variable angle attachment for your bench vice jaws and that device could work with this also.
will this tool hold a piece of wood 26 inch long to router a shape on the long side of the board?
mikey on Jan 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think that if it is 26.00" long it would not be a "small part" any more, it would be molding and all you need is a few featherboards
Can you use this device for work on table saw?
gaswood on Oct 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Rockler does not recommend or endorse the use of this product with a table saw.
What is the maximum thickness that it can handle?
blh25 on Sep 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No limit. Work piece sits below pins. However, using a workpiece over about 2” seems like it would be dangerous, because only a small portion of the top edge would be held by this device. See Stumpy Nubs #11 Cool Tools that just came out -He recommends this tool and shows how it works with somewhat thicker pieces.
