Add IN-LINE pressure to your hold-down clamps (for MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamps).
Like two clamps in one.
The X-PAD™ is an upgrade for MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamps that allows you to clamp in two directions at once—achieving in-line clamping with unrestricted clamp positioning.
How to use: Simply slide the X-PAD™ onto the round cap of any MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamp to add a whole new level of functionality.
In-line pressure with zero lift.
The X-PAD applies hold-down and in-line pressure as the clamp tightens. The combined forces keep your workpieces flat and eliminate the need for two or more different clamps
- (4) X-PADs
- NOTE: Dovetail Clamps sold separately
How would you clamp a 3-sided miter - band clamp? Not a chance. The X-PAD™ applies pressure to both sides of the joint, keeping it flat and square, even without a 4th side to support it. Only four Dovetail Clamps upgraded with X-PADs eliminate the need for different types of clamps.
Work-Holding Like A Pro
Securing material without obstructing the top can be a real challenge. This is traditionally done with a combo of bench dogs, in-line clamps, and costly end-vices. MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamps with X-PADs allow you to use spacers to hold your workpiece for any process that requires unrestricted access to the top.
Safer, Cleaner Cuts
The X-PAD's Pressure Transfer Notch gives you more points of contact on the workpiece. This keeps your material firmly in place for safer, cleaner cuts with a table saw sled.
