With so many things to hold in place during clamp-ups, I often feel like I need the arms of an octopus. Now, with the help of rare-earth cup magnets, I no longer have to worry about getting wood pads to stay in position on clamp jaws. To make your own stay-put pads, simply drill a hole with a Forstner bit into the pad, attach the magnet with a screw, and go!
