No job too odd for these bench clamps
Holding an odd-shaped part on a workbench to sand or do other work has always been a chore. My solution: Replace the dog holes on my workbench with T-tracks aligned with the dogs on my vises. By sliding the stops along the track and varying the stop sizes, almost any angle or odd shape can be held between the stops and the vise dogs.
