| I'm looking for something that may not exist. I have a cast iron
| sliding table and I believe it would be a lot more useful with some
| type of magnetic or vacuum base hold down clamps. This type of
| clamp would simply attach to the sliding table and use a screw or
| toggle type clamp to hold the wood in place. Has anyone seen such a
| thing or have any suggestions for a base on which I could add my
| own clamps?
If you'd like to try a vacuum base, you can make it with a block of
plastic and a bit of weatherstripping. A recycled refrigerator
compressor works well as a vacuum pump. You might get a few ideas from
http://www.iedu.com/DeSoto/assembly.html . I'd suggest at least 15 sq
in or so for secure attachment.
