MATCHFIT X-Pad Accessory (4-pack)
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. 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.
Clamp round or oblong stock with ease.
The V-groove profile gives you two points of contact to clamp. Simply turn the X-PAD 90° to clamp round and oblong-profile stock with a single clamp.
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 Doveteail 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 fimrly in place for safer, cleaner cuts with a table saw sled.
