Holdfasts are a very simple tool that have aided work at the workbench for centuries. Although simple these tools are incredibly effective at holding work down against the bench and they can be much quicker and often more versatile to use than a tail vice.

Holdfasts can be used in all of the holes found in the bench top, sliding board jack and front leg and their uses really are limitless; ranging from clamping boards down while you cut joints, to securing work for hand thicknessing or routing etc.
