Any recommendations (I’m OK with Google) for toggle clamps to use on a sledge for a tablesaw to saw straight edges on waney edged boards? The sort that will hold the board to the sledge.
Thanks.

they’re all pretty much the same unless you buy the really nice German ones. eBay will probably do you fine

I bought some from Banggood - copies of GoodHand by the look of them - just watch for the size you are ordering - some are very small. Last time I bought any they were about 5 days from a UK warehouse.

You could use our Microjig Match Fit Dovetail clamps in a baseboard, image for illustration only, or the best standard toggle clamps are GoodHand, most others are copies of these.

Thanks @Peter Sefton . I'll take a look at your site. I think I have a 14º dovetail cutter in my collection of "they'll come in useful one day" cutters!

Toggle clamps are a must for a jig, where you put the board in, clamp, make the cut, repeat. Even the cheap ones apply a lot of pressure.
When using regular clams you'll end up with a giant sized jig just to be able to have somewhere for the end to go.
This is one i made to cut segments for a circular table. I dont think i could have managed with regular clamps without going mad from the constant loosen/tighten/loosen/tighten.
