I saw this idea for a work holder by +Christopher Landy over on Google+ — it’s not the first time I’ve seen something like it, but it kicked me in the butt to make one for my drill press table. Rather than a clamping the work piece to the table like a regular hold down, this work holder pushes the work against the fence to keep it from spinning, allowing you to move the work piece freely in one axis. This is handy if you have a line of holes to drill. It can also be useful for drilling large holes in small pieces of wood, like say a bracelet, where there isn’t much for a hold down to grab onto.
