Veritas Code 05G14.01
The Veritas Hold-Down can clamp work pieces to a bench or anywhere a 3/4inch 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 on the post resist upward forces; yet still allow easy entry into a hole.
The long; low-profile arm is unobstructed at the clamping end; allowing good access to work from all sides. The 10inch (254mm) hold-down post gives you 8inch (200mm) of clamping capacity; matching the 8inch throat capacity.
Used vertically in the top of a bench; or horizontally in a side skirt. Clamping forces are infinitely variable by hand tightening the clamping knob (machined brass) to any degree.
The arm is made from forged steel; the other components are steel, aluminum alloy and brass.
