Clamp Stick


Every once in a while, there’s not really a good way to clamp a small fitting to the drill press. What I do is clamp a stick to it. That gives me sufficient leverage to hold the part steady while I drill it.

The only important factor is to be sure that the clamp can’t mar the part. I find a small piece of model airplane plywood works well to prevent the clamp from damaging the part.
