Alright everyone so these are just long versions of the hold down clamps that are already on here but I thought I would show you how I made them they are pretty simple
What you will need:
.5" Dried Red Oak
.125 solid carbide bit (I used a 2 flute spiral upcut)
small clamps to clamp the oak down for cutting
When you open this in easel please make sure and check all your settings as mine may not work for you
Saftey Height: 10mm
Step over: 40%
Feedrate: 25 in/mm
Depth of cut: .028
material thickness: .500"
Set easel to cut the outside of the clamps with 4 tabs on the straightest sections possible and then set easel to fill the center slot and small hole to fill and do not use tabs.
Make sure that your depth of cut is the thickness of your material
The small hole in the back is meant for a threaded insert (the exact ones that are in the X-Carve wasteboard) So put a insert in there and thread a 5mm carriage bolt in there for added back support.
Also the middle slot excepts a 5mm bolt and will require a washer
So once the clamps are cut out of the oak simply sand the corners down to a good finish and insert the threaded insert and you are off to the races with a super long hold down clamp
Also I like to cut the end opposite of the threaded insert at a 45 degree angle on my miter saw this will allow for more clearance when cutting close to the clamps with your spindle
This can be done when milling the pieces out of the oak all in one step but easel is not capable of doing so in its current configuration you would have to use something like Fusion 360 and then Chilipepper to cut the clamps but why do all this when it take 2 seconds on a miter saw just watch those fingers lol
thanks everyone one let me know if you have any question I would be GLAD to help
