Forged Holdfast


SKU: N/A Category:


Fully forged from one piece of steel; these traditional woodworkers holdfasts function as strong versatile clamps utilizing a simple hole in the bench top. These holdfasts are incredibly strong while being springy at the same time.

This tool drops into a 3/4″ hole hole in your work bench and with the tap of a mallet becomes a strong clamp. With a second tap of the mallet on the back of the tool, the spring releases. These are often purchased as sets of two for versatility on the bench.

These holdfast are forged to fit a 3/4 inch hole in a workbench approx. 2-4 inches thick. Slight variations in these measurements will still work, however, if you have a question about your specific needs don’t hesitate to reach out.

“These holdfasts are as functional as they are beautiful. As a professional furniture maker, I’ve a lot of holdfasts, and these are by far some of the best. A light tap and they hold secure, another light tap and they’re free. I’d buy them again, and pay double. Thank you for the awesome tools.” -customer review
