This new version of our bench blade can be positioned anywhere along the length of a T-slot track. The T-bolt is secured with a hex-key, locking both the clamp and the orientation of the jaw in the desired position. The bench blade projects just 1/4" above a work surface to permit maximum access to a workpiece.
Used much like a toggle clamp, it has a thumb-operated eccentric cam lever to control the sliding jaw, so you can quickly secure or release work. With a 1/4" range of travel, the jaw has limited throw, but applies up to 300 lb of clamping force.
Flats on the cam provide secure stops at 1/8" and 1/4" of travel. The 1-1/2" x 1/4" jaw face has a 5° inward cant to help hold wood securely. The cam and jaw are cast steel, heat-treated for surface hardness, and the T-bolt is machined steel.
