Anyone know where I can find a 1" diameter hold down for a bench? The old fashioned kind you just tap down.
C-man,cabinetman said:You could just insert metal sleeves in the holes with a wall thickness to match a 3/4" hold down. Just thinkin' out loud (so to speak), but the metal sleeve will last longer than a wood hole.
Exactly; but are you using metal to metal? I think that 3/4 hold fasts in a 1" hole allows more cant than a 3/4 hold fast in a 3/4 hole; therefore would work better.cabinetman said:Mine work because of the angle created as they get inserted.
