I Forge Iron

hold down clamp

Recommended Posts

best and fastest + easiest to make I have found would be the bench dog or hold fast.  Many woodworkers use them.  Take a round peice same size as your pritchell hole bend to 90 deg.  doesn't have to be a square forge end flat.  Make sure the flat is lower then the corner.  Put in pritchell with flat end over stock. Tap lightly down with hammer.  To release grip tap parallel to anvil surface on back of leg in pritchell hole. 




That was the first of 3 that I have made so far.  All the same shape just different sizes to fit different holes.




I love the woodwrights shop :D
