Thanks, though I was asking about an MFT worktop - I have one of the hold-downs and use it quite a bit.

Whilst trying to keep my sarcasm for the screw clamping gods (they are simple clamps after all) firmly locked away in a box... the one thing in their [the clamps] favour is the extra small amount of throat they offer over the ratcheting ones e.g. for times when you need them to go over something and apply pressure on the other side, they can be screwed through the bar to give extra reach where the throat of the ratcheting ones is fixed. Just be sure and double check them :geek:

The Festool ratchet clamps are currently £31.99 on Amazon, good price.

Thanks, Doug! I wanted four more for my new table, buy my Festool dealer didn't have any in stock. I ordered them from your link as soon as I saw it, and they arrived a few minutes ago.
