Small Knobs for Clamps and Hold Downs plansFree Small Knobs for Clamps and Hold Downs plans - Whenever I find myself making the same part over and over, I start looking around for a way to speed up and simplify the process. This is particulary true for small parts which are difficult and sometimes even dangerous to shape using power tools. Whenever I find myself making the same part over and over, I start looking around for a way to speed up and simplify the process. This is particulary true for small parts which are difficult and sometimes even dangerous to shape using power tools. I use a lot of small wooden knobs with a t-nut for hold-downs and small clamps. My first attempt at speeding up their manufacture involved a pattern and hold-down mechanism that let me use a router with a flush-routing bit to form the profile. It was faster than marking them out one at a time and cutting them on a bandsaw, but the router tended to chew up the end grain. I have since figured out how to make them eight to ten at a time with a tablesaw and stationary sander.
