Step 5: Finis

That there's one fine, functional bench pin.

Clamp it down so it's firm.

File a channel across one finger to hold a piece of rod you're sanding.
Saw a groove to hold the edge of a piece of sheet material.
Gouge out a dish you can wrap your fingers around to lightly squeeze-clamp your project.

Make one that suits your next Thing!
I'm thinking that would work real nice held by a holdfast on a proper bench.<br><br><br>
What is a &quot;holdfast&quot;, please, as I think a couple of G-clamps is good but there's got to be something better.

Thanks kindly for the video. It's a great vid., Charles Neil explains a holdfast and benchdog really well. <br> <br>Robert.
Absolutely! it's great because you can have a custom, adaptable surface anywhere around your shop.
