Very versatile clamps
I use these clamps everywhere. I use them with my MFT-style 20mm perforated benchtop to hold all kinds of things to the bench. The end of these clamps will fit in a 1/2" hole, so I use them to hold an auxilliary fence on my tablesaw and to hold a backer strip of MDF on my shop-built coping sled.
Does The Job
The clamp feels durable and fits very well in the bottom of Festool saw track. Creates a tight join between the Festool saw track to sheet goods or other wide boards. The "threaded handle\contact pad" of the tightening mechanism that slides up and down the L-shaped track-angle bar tends to want to slide down the track-angle as the round contact pad nears the wood. Once the round contact pad touches the wood (obviously) sliding no longer occurs. The correct procedure is to shove the "threaded handle\contact pad" butt up to the wood and start tightening, rather than start tightening a 1/2" away from the wood, which some people might do at first. The "threaded handle\contact pad" portion can\will potentially slide off the L-shaped track-angle bar if you're not careful while carrying it around or transporting. I think Festool should have included a snug rubber stop at the bottom of the L-shaped track-angle bar. You could always purchase a tiny rubber flange to resolve this issue. Other than that I like the clamps and they serve their purpose.
Useful when needed but slows down process.
