Make some . You will find these useful. As soon as I figure out where to share Files. I’ll
Be happy to offer it “open source” . Is there a files section for that purpose ?
here is a link to the post where i put the file yesterday (in case it didn’t make sense.) Honeycomb bed holdown pins
…… a few years later……
Recently , I was doing a bunch of cutting on my gf and using the hold down pins that I designed several years ago.
It always brings a smile to my face and a bit of pride when I receive emails whenever the original post is referenced .
It occurred to me , as I was staking down a stubborn board, that my automatic habit to test the flatness, is to simply tap around on the material to see if I hear a “pop” at any tap point. The “pop” indicates that there is a gap between the material and bed (indicating a need for another pin) . When I can tap around, and only hear the dull “thud”, I have achieved a properly secured piece of material.
I rechecked my original post and realized that I failed to add this tip.
Happy tapping !
Cheers to all who inspire me with your awesome designs! Sharing is caring
