    No doubt, Richard is pretty awesome. Looking forward to more of his videos to come online. But “au revoir”? I thought this was The _English_ Woodworker. Anyway, great tip. I’ve had some difficulty getting my Gramercy holdfasts to stick well in my 5.5″ benchtop, so I’m going to try this pretty much right away. Thanks, Ken.

    5.5″ ?!? Wow, that’s thick…

    I’ve read that you have to “rough up” the surface of the Gramercy holdfasts with course sandpaper in order to work well in thicker benchtops. Richard’s punching marks essentially do the same thing – perhaps more effectively?

    The Lie Nielsen holdfasts have a rough texture to their shafts and they grip excellently. At $50 each or $90 for a pair, they are simply wonderful to use.

    Good bit of British sense of humour.
