Best T-track lever clamps?
« on: July 16, 2015, 06:50 AM »
Since I'm placing a T-Track along the edges on the top of my new MFT style workbench, I wanted to pick up some lever clamps to supplement the Festool clamping elements.  I know about the units that Rockler makes:  http://www.rockler.com/auto-lock-t-track-clamp

The Rockler ones are attractive at only $30 a pop, and they seem well-made, but I'm wondering if any of you know of similar or better models?  Thanks.

If you are going to be using a combination of clamps, make sure the t track works for all, the Rockler t track doesn't work with the Festool clamps.  I tried Rockler accessories in Incra t track and didn't work.

Oh junk.  I got the Incra track b/c it fit the Festool clamps, though so far have only installed it along the side.  Maybe for the tracks on top of the bench along the edge I can get the Rockler T-track if I end up going with the automatic clamps.
