So how do they hold pieces down?

I don't see that they're threaded, so is it just gravity?

Nope, just a tap on the top above the bar makes the hold tight, then to loosen, just a tap parrallel with the bench top at the corner. It works great, is easy to quickly reposition, and very simple to use.

I recently saw the "jam-style" clamps demoed at the Jamestown Settlement in VA. They came over with the colonists from England in 1607!!! A proven tool!


Interesting. Except for the screw, is the rest of it plastic parts? The screw is metal, right?

Thanks for the lead and link, Fred.
