I searched the forums for "hold down clamps" and came up empty.

 I would like to have something to keep things still when I try to drill holes in s****s. On page 8 of the Work Station 220's owner's manual are directions for making hold down clamps. However, it seems that, were I to follow the directions, I would have to make a new "spacer" for each s****, depending on height.

Has anyone made hold down clamps to use with their work station and do you have photos?

Thanks

I know it took me awhile to respond, but I just started back on Dremel meesageboard.  I even forgot myold password.

What I have done is I used my flatbased vise from my regulear drill press for my Dremel 220 work station.  I know its big and cumbersone for the workstation, but it worked for me.  That is all I can suggest.

I looked at the Micromark vise that was suggested. http://www.micromark.com/quick-jaw-vise-2-1and4-inch-capacity,8093.html It is now $28.95 (plus s/h). I found this on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/QUICK-RELEASE-DRILL-PRESS-VICE/dp/B0054HIIEE#productDetails and it looks so similar but only $9.55.



Does anyone have any insight as to whether this is a cheap POC compared to the Micromark one or whether you think it would fit and work?



THANKS!!!
