Workshop tip: Helpful little press for inlay

Article Image

When making paterae inlay, I often find yourself with clamped blocks everywhere in the store flooring. For those who don’t clamp these small veneer patterns flat, they flip into potato chips earlier than you might have an opportunity to make use of them. Additionally, I make paterae in batches, and at all times have extras to retailer. So I used a press screw from Pony Instruments to make this small gadget for maintaining all of them flat. To separate particular person items or teams, I insert melamine spacers.
