Workholding

Veritas Panel Platform Kit Quickly and easily make a platform for cutting sheet material. When using a circular saw to cut large sheet material there is always the problem of raising the sheet sufficiently in order for the saw’s blade to cut through the full thickness. The Veritas Panel Platform Kit solves the problem in a smart, simple, reusable, portable and economic way.

Make a sacrificial standoff to protect your benchtop.

If you use a circular saw, you need this kit. It comprises 12 resilient polypropylene saddles along with a carry bag for easy transportation. The only other requirement is some standard 3 x 1 prepared timber, available from your local builders merchant or DIY warehouse.

These innovative saddles have dozens of practical applications in the workshop or on a job site. Used to hold standard prepared timber on edge, these platform saddles make for a fast and flexible method of creating a sacrificial work standoff. When using power tools for sawing, drilling, cutting etc, they protect your benchtop and your tools blade’s.

Initial assembly merely involves screwing the saddles to 2 x 2,400mm lengths (6 on each). To build the platform; simply clip 6 x 1,200mm lengths into the saddles to form cross rails.

Supplied in sets of 4, these strong, resilient polypropylene mouldings will stand up to plenty of hard use. Each one comprises a saddle mounted on a removable post. The removable posts have sprung wings to ensure a snug fit in both 3/4” and 20mm dog holes for bench use. This smart, straightforward system will change the way you work.

Once assembled, the platform is flat and stable, and the sacrificial cross-rails let you rip or crosscut material without the saw’s blade contacting the surface beneath. You can work with confidence on any flat surface, indoors or out. It’s so stable you can kneel on the work while making the cut and it’s easier to follow a line.

While these saddles are ideal for benchtop use, they can be used (and reused) to create a stable work surface whenever needed. There are 2 sizes available. The 2 x 4 Platform Saddles can use whatever nominal width you have on hand (e.g. 2 x 6). The 3 x 1 version can use whatever nominal width you have on hand (e.g. 4 x 1). Timber not included.

The platform takes less than a minute to set up and can be used repeatedly to make hundreds of cuts. When you’re finished, the kit breaks down quickly and fits neatly into the nylon bag. Inc.vat Ex.vat Code Panel Platform Kit £20.15 £16.79 105157

With the posts removed, the saddles can be surface mounted wherever you need them.

Veritas Toggle Clamp Plates Toggle clamp plates are a great way of mounting your toggle clamps and using them on your workbench.

Axminster Trade Clamps Self Adjusting Toggle Clamp Push/Pull Huge adjustable clamping force. The self adjusting push/pull toggle clamp converts the movement of the handle into an axial movement of the piston. The piston pushes a workpiece against a fence or stops and locks with the handle in the horizontal position. For example as used on most pocket-hole jig systems. The piston has 15mm of travel and automatically adjusts to variations in workpiece thickness. The piston centre height is 17.5mm. A set screw, on the cantilevered joint adjusts the clamping force to your particular needs up to 204kg for the 15 and 306kg for the 25. The piston has an internal thread with an extension for manual length adjustment. The wide injection moulded handle has a soft grip insert, which makes setting the clamp a comfortable operation. Made from quality steel, galvanised and passivated against corrosion. Toggle Clamp Push/Pull 25 Toggle Clamp Push/Pull 15 Toggle Clamp Plate
