Vertical Holdfast

Recommended Posts

Someone sent me this video by @JenniferP on making a holdfast that can hold your knife blade on edge on top of the anvil.

Good stuff.

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

Thanks guys..

These can be sized for each thickness of stock..   IIRC this one was for 3/16" and I put 1/4" in it.  Work o easy when cold..  But having the right size for the material is a better way to go when being used for hot work.

The YT channel has not done very well so my interest in it comes and goes..   I base follow-up videos on how well the 1st video is received..   So I never followed up with additional models..   

These things are super handy.. bolts, rivets, bolsters, integrals, wide jaw, etc.. It was the concept I was trying to share..

I know this feeling all too well. I subscribed to a bunch of channels (including yours) and I don't even have the time or inclination to check for the updates.
