    Hi All,
    I tend to cut Acrylic and some wood when I have the time. I currently use double sided tape which works well but is also messy.
    I have an alloy bed on which I mounted a piece of wood (it's actually kitchen worktoo chipboard) which allows me to have the odd moment of "oops, glad I have that piece of wood there" rather than driving into the bed.
    I do plan to remove the wood at some point once I get a pretty good routine in place so, would I look to use some kind of clamps through the bed? It has slots, possibly called "T" slots. If clamping is the best solution, is it just a case of making something to do the job, or are there some great off the shelf products? I'm not looking to spend much so cost is a factor but if there is something available then I'll have a peek.
    Cheers

    James

    I think these are what your looking for which allow you to clamp work in all manner of arrangments.

    You can also use bolts with a head thats bigger than the t slot and just grind to side oposite to each other equal until they slide in.
