Product Information:

If you have ever been frustrated by the inadequate clamp opening and clumsiness of most drill press clamps, here is your answer.

If you have ever been frustrated by the inadequate clamp opening and clumsiness of most drill press clamps, here is your answer. The post quickly mounts to most drill press tables with slots or holes, a bolt passes through the table and is secured with a large ring nut. To adjust the height for up to 5" of capacity, simply depress the clutch (similar to a pipe clamp) and slide the clamp head to the desired setting. Hold down pressure is provided by the cam action clamp on the head which features a 1-1/2" diameter rubber foot to help prevent marring your workpiece

  • 5" height capacity
  • 1-1/2" diameter rubber foot

    Like the description states: "If you have ever been frustrated by the inadequate clamp opening and clumsiness of most drill press clamps, here is your answer." This clamp does and it is effortless to set and use.

    Comments about WoodRiver Quick Set Drill Press Hold Down :

    Loved everything about this except having to drill a thru hole in my drill press table. I would have loved the option to have a post that uses the hold down slots. That being said, once I decided on the best place to drill the thru hole it is very usefull and easy to swing away when not needed. Great holding power without marring my work.

    Comments about WoodRiver Quick Set Drill Press Hold Down :

    I use as a drill press hold-down, and find it very convenient that you can throw the lever in 3 increasingly tighter positions as I am clamping something to the table. It's quick and easy to use.

    I have three of these hold downs: Two are on my drill presses and one is mounted on the work bench. I'm going to pick up a fourth to install on the mortise machine.

    Comments about WoodRiver Quick Set Drill Press Hold Down :

    I Purchased this to hold down pvc pipe for drilling holes in the pipe... The throw or the distance between the beginning of the action and the end of the action is very short... It works well but would be better with a longer throw...

    Comments about WoodRiver Quick Set Drill Press Hold Down :

    They do not work well with any drill press table. You need holes everywhere in your table for them to work with large ringed nut. Would be much better with T-track fittings instead. Another shop boat anchor. Live and learn.
