You've got better eyes than me Russ...I could just make it out after you said what it was.

They are handy little beasties...here's one on my low drill table fence:



They have an adjustable nose with a rubber end...you adjust this just like on a Mole wrench until it just closes firmly:



The cheap ones tend to pop open so try to get a good one.

You can get a variety of orientations..ones that clamp down, others that push against things...I got mine on FleaBay...cheapest way of buying them IMHO...try CLICKING HERE

Cheers

No, I dont mean the toggle clamp, its the blue cutting bit that must be fitted to the route, but what is it?

Hi DW

I might be wrong....but if you mean the blue thing in this screen capture....



..then I think it's a straight router bit...with sealed bearings on both ends......

That's my guess anyway.
