Handmade item

Material

steel

Hand forged woodworking holdfast with unique leaf finial. Sized for perfect function in either a 3/4" hole or a 1". These work best in a bench from 3" - 4" thick but have been used in many benches both thicker and thinner. If your bench is over 4" thick please let me know and I will chose just the right holdfast. these are often used in pairs. These leaf finial holdfasts were made popular by blacksmith Phil Koontz. When Phil quit making these I took over where he left off, with his permission and encouragement.

11/16" diameter for the 3/4" version
15/16" diameter for the 1" version
average reach 6"
average length of shaft from top of bench 9"
(provides 5" of clamping in a 4" bench top)

These are unfinished for the best hold. The use of oil, wax or other friction reducing finishes will reduce their holding power.
