Anvil Hold Down Clamp
by Jim "PawPaw" Wilson
This clamp is made from Vice-Grip welders clamping pliers.
The lower jaw extension has has been removed and replaced by a square bar that fits in the anvil's hardy hole.
The sample above was designed to take a wedge that was later found unnecessary.
To operate all you do is drop the shank into the hardy hole and over a piece of work, then clamp.
The loose fitting shank cocks just enough to lock in the anvil.
