Product Information:

The Veritas hold-down clamp is designed to fit in any 3/4" drilled hole. Clamping force is controlled by the brass knob, and the arm is free to pivot in any direction, with clamping forces exerted downward into the clamped piece. The 10" hold-down post is canted during use, and the fine barbed grooves resist pulling out of the 3/4" hole, with 8" of clamping capacity in the vertical and horizontal direction. Made from high-strength zinc aluminum alloy, the hold-down features a machined steel post and a machined brass clamping knob. A quality hold-down for any shop.


  • Brass knob adjusts clamping force

  • Zinc alloy arm, machined steel post

  • 8" clamping capacity

    Comments about Veritas Bench Hold Down :

    I own two of these wonderful hold downs. I bought the first from Lee Valley and the second from Woodcraft when they first started carrying them. They are perfect for thick or thin benches and will hold your work right where you need it. I own many traditional holdfasts as well and can say that the Veritas hold down works as well as any of them. Some people complain about the price but I look at it as an investment. I will have these forever. The quality is off the charts.

    Comments about Veritas Bench Hold Down :

    Much better than the pound in type hold downs. Does not mar the work. Not as good of a hold as a vice to be expected. Will be useful for hard to reach areas.

    Comments about Veritas Bench Hold Down :

    costs too much, but worth it. I have a thick bench top, none of the traditional clamps worked well. This works better than I would have hoped. Now I need to save up for a second.

    Comments about Veritas Bench Hold Down :

    THIS IS A GREAT PRODUCT. IT WORKS VERY WELL. I RECENTLY BUILT A NEW BENCH WITH A 3-1/2" HARD MAPLE TOP WITH 3/4 INCH DOG HOLES AND THE SHAFT FROM THE VERITAS HOLD DOWN IS A LITTLE TIGHT BUT THIS WILL GET BETTER WITH USE. SEVERAL MONTHS AGO I PURCHASED A $15 HOLDFAST FROM A WOODCRAFT STORE (BEFORE WOODCRAFT STARTED CARRYING THE VERITAS HOLD DOWN) AND IT WAS ABSOLUTELY THE WORST PRODUCT I EVERY PURCHASED FROM WOODCRAFT. WOODCRAFT SHOULD ONLY CARRY THE VERITAS HOLD DOWN EVEN THOUGH IT COST MUCH MORE.
