WOOD magazine review

Woodhaven Model 240K Hold-in/Hold-down

Review Summary

This pair features high-density plastic “fingers”—guaranteed not to break—that are molded at a 4° angle away from the plate. The fingers then compress as you feed stock between them and a table or fence, creating just the right amount of holding pressure. Setting that tension is simple: Press the tool’s fingers against your workpiece with pressure until they are touching parallel to the board edge, then tighten the knobs.
The pair are interchangeable between the mounting attachments to accommodate different size stock. Mount them to the fence-face T-slots, or on top with the included bracket. You also can remove the bolts and simply clamp them to your table or fence. We ripped hard maple on the tablesaw, and the pair held the workpieces safely against the fence and table and away from the back side of the spinning blade. On the router table, we machined 3⁄8" round- overs and coves in pine and hard maple, and again the stock did not waver from its fixed path.
