The Crucible holdfast. Made from ductile iron in an Illinois family foundry that’s been in business for more than a century. Based on a French design salvaged from a barn.

Yet many of us struggle with holdfasts that work...

Crucible Planing StopCrucible Planing Stop
Crucible Planing Stop
We have always loved blacksmith-made planing stops, which are embedded in the end of a block of wood that is about 3” x 3” x 12”. The block is friction-fit into a mortice in the benchtop and moves up and down with mallet taps. In our experience, the planing stop is as important as the workbench’s face vice and has almost-endless uses. The main problem with a blacksmith...

It also provides a reliable registration surface for materials too narrow to span two adjacent bench dogs. The...

Veritas Bench Hold DownVeritas Bench Hold Down
Veritas Bench Hold Down
The Veritas hold-down can clamp workpieces to a bench or anywhere a 3/4" hole can be drilled. Exceptionally high clamping forces can be obtained with this hold-down for two reasons. First, with the arm free to pivot independently, all levered forces are exerted downward, without any losses due to horizontal slippage from the canting action of the hold-down post. Second, the fine barb-shaped grooves...

This version of the Wonder Dog has a fast-acting cam mechanism to speed up adjustments. You just slide the head against the workpiece, then throw the lever to apply clamping force.

This simple device from Lee Valley is designed to help prevent racking when clamping work at one side of a vice.

Typical captive nut arrangements for knockdown bases involve either a square nut, recessed hex nut, or short, slotted cross-dowels. All of these fasteners make it tricky to assemble the joint without some frustration or extra tools.

Veritas Special Bench Bolts
Veritas Special Bench Bolts
Most European benches use a bolt system to fasten leg sets to stretchers. The main advantage is that you can snug the bolts if anything loosens due to changes in humidity. The solid brass nuts on our bench bolts slide into a pre-drilled hole in the stretcher, and distribute pressure to prevent breakout. A bench can be made very rigid (without complex joinery) by using a wide stretcher, since the...

A good carver's vice should be adjustable in all three axis. This one has full rotation in two axes and 3" of height adjustment in the third axis. But more important, it has controlled release; when you relieve the clamping pressure, a combination of internal springs and O-rings provides residual resistance so that your work does not suddenly fall or rotate. You can reposition the work and...
