These compact, lightweight Fence Clamps allow you to secure a huge variety of shop-made auxiliary fences to your existing fences without having the clamp interfere with your work. The clamp arm simply fits into a 3/8" hole in the top of the auxiliary fence, keeping it out of the way. That means no more clunky wood screws and C-clamps and no need to screw into your expensive fence! Clamps can be used singly as stop blocks, or in pairs for sacrificial fences, half-fences, resaw fences, and a variety of other fixtures. One set of clamps will do it all! Includes 2 clamps.


Features:

  • Rigid aluminum body with steel threaded components
  • Range of travel 1/2"-5-3/4" (1/2" minimum assumes a 3/4" auxiliary fence; you can clamp to an even thinner primary fence if you use a thicker auxiliary fence)
  • Drill a 3/8" hole in the auxiliary fence

can the clamping (right angle bent steel) bolt be replaced with a T-slot bolt to hold down a guide bar?
Nick P on Apr 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The L-shaped bolts are completely removable, and there's no reason why they couldn't be replaced by a T-slot bolt of similar thread dimensions, however, I know of no T-slot bolts that are as large as the bolts used in the L-shaped clamps. They are larger than 3/8-16. my guess being 7/16-14. If you can find a T-slot bolt of that size, you should be able to swap the two at will. Hope this helps.
what is the widest it will open?
Fred C on Aug 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 5 3/4 is a good figure. It can actually go to 6" but kind of wiggly that far out.
Do the round ends rotate or are they fixed?
Alan Dale D on Mar 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The L shaped silver bolt is threaded so you can change the gap with both the knob and the bolt. So the bolt rotates 360 degrees.
I bought a set of Rockler Clamp-It® Assembly Squares some years back and they came with what looks like these exact same clamps. I tried using them in this way and found that they weren't deep enough to securely grab on to the fence. The aux fence actually would tilt out from the bottom slightly because the clamp didn't extend far enough into the board. Are these the same clamps, or have they been redesigned? If these are the same, maybe I was doing something wrong?
gscott3 on Oct 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I’ve used a couple sets of these, but can’t say if they’re different than the ones that you have. I use them to hold a router jig to my tablesaw fence, as well as auxiliary fences to the table saw fence. One idea to solve your problem might be to bend the tab that goes into the auxiliary fence slightly, to ensure the clamp is putting pressure as low as possible on your auxiliary fence.
Does anyone know the throat depth for this clamp? (center line of screw to clamp frame)
Paul W on Jul 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: From the inside of the short leg to the center of the right angle post is 3 1/2" to 6 1/2" when all the way screwed out. I would use the clamps with a max throat depth of 6 1/4" (this is with he right angle post screwed in 3 threads. The blue frame is 5/8" square. The longer leg outside is 3 7/8", inside 3 1/4". The short leg outside is 2 1/8", inside 1 1/2". Tightening screw center line to inside of long leg is 1". Travel distance of Tightening screw is 3".
will these work on my delta uni fence?
Herb B on Mar 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Probably so. I used them on a contractor saw and now on my cabinet saw and they fit both fences fine. You shouldn't have a problem.
Does anyone know the diameter and thread spec of the L shaped bolt?
Bruce R on Jun 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes!
The diameter of the L shape rod is 5/16 and the thread is 3/8-16, hope this helps.
