Gramercy Hold fasts

$66.00 AUD

These holdfasts are made by Gramercy in the USA.    They are made using a modern formed wire process.   A bit like spring steel and I would say virtually unbreakable under normal conditions.

The holdfast is used in a  3/4" hole in your workbench top.  A 1 3/4" thick or thicker top is required for them to function properly.   If your top is thinner you simply add a packer under the bench where the hold is to go.  They have a 6 1/2" reach and the maximum clamping hieght is  7 1/4" in a 2" thick benchtop. 

Imported into Australia by Colen Clenton.

$66 each.

They work excellently in my sawyers bench with relatively narrow thickness. They hold so fast that a caul is necessary.

Using the holdfast

Good. It is easy to adapt your methods to suit it.

Really effective

A pleasure to use. I bought two and they are very useful for holding all sorts of work pieces. Don't forget to give a light wipe of oil regularly to avoid rust - I picked up some surface rust very quickly because I forgot to do this initially.

Gramercy holdfasts - just brilliant

So for my fifth workbench in my life I wanted a better system for securing materials to the top for planning and routing, Both by machine and by hand, and also chiselling out half laps. I spent hours on the Internet looking at boutique Festool and other systems which cost a shed load of money, and have a focus on portability for contractors who have to travel to the worksite. But slowly my research revealed that the system is used for hundreds of years would be worth a go.With several 3/4 inch holes board with a spade bit and the doves foot made from scrap timber, this whole fast I just stunning with simple and bring it to operate. They hold Timber of all shapes and sizes to the benchtop and legs with the tap of a mallet. Buy them, Leave the high and expensive whole systems to those that can afford or needed, if it’s a workshop you probably don’t. You’ll never regret it.
