I am so happy with the custom holdfast from Black Bear Forge. I use the Sjobergs Elite 2000 workbench WITH cabinet underneath. Because of the cabinet, (and also because the workbench uses 1" diameter dog holes which seems less common these days), I needed a pretty custom length holdfast. I gave John the necessary dimensions and the holdfast works WONDERFULLY. I'm so excited to have it and I already ordered a second one.

These holdfasts are awesome! I ordered holdfasts from two other vendors before these. The first set never arrived due to an international shipping issue. The second set never arrived because they were packed poorly and opened up during shipping. Third time is the charm, and I couldn't be happier that this is the set I ended up with. John got them out the door to me in a hurry and they got put to work the day they arrived, and will undoubtedly provide a lifetime or two of workholding services for me and whoever is lucky enough to inherit them.

Long time viewer of the Black Bear Forge channel and needed a fold fast for my new workbench. This is probably the easiest hold fast to use! I have a 4 in thick top and just a easy tap on top and it holds really well! Very happy with it.

I love these holdfasts!!! They shipped on time and I mentioned that my bench is 5" thick so John made them to work on a top that thick. They work perfectly. Thanks A Lot. Ron.
