The only requirements to use the Veritas Hold-Down are round holes 3/4 inch or 19 mm in diameter and clearance under those holes for the post of the hold-down.
It is hard to list all the advantages and the endless variety of clamping uses for the Veritas Hold-Down. One distinct advantage over other hold-downs is that anywhere you can drill a hole, you can use the Veritas Hold-Down. The arm is always in the ready position for clamping. The hold-down is designed so that it can be gripped in one hand to insert it into a dog hole in a bench while the work to be clamped is oriented with the other hand. Slight downward pressure will lock the hold-down firmly in position. Simply turn the brass knob to apply the desired amount of clamping force. Clamping pressure is infinitely variable, depending on how much you turn the brass knob. In most cases, one or two turns is all that is required.
As well as being used in any location on the top of your bench, this hold-down excels when clamping boards or doors against the side of your bench. Simply add a skirt to your bench with 3/4 inch holes drilled along its length.
