MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamp AP
Anti-Pivot Technology

Repetitive processes, FASTER.

Create your own clamp tracks anywhere you can route a dovetail groove. Enjoy the same, limitless functionality as the standard Dovetail Clamps with three added benefits:

  1. Anti-Pivot technology keeps the clamp arm in place to make repetitive tasks faster.
  2. Included X-PAD™ applies force in two directions and helps you secure material with fewer clamps.
  3. Increased clamping range (8.5").
Henry Wang, Microjig Founder

The idea for the Dovetail Clamp AP came when Founder and Inventor, Henry Wang, was using the first generation of Dovetail Clamps on the drill press for a process that required constant re-adjustment. The clamp arm would pivot a drop while swapping between workpieces, adding time and frustration to the project. The Anti-pivot coli spring solved the problem and proved to make repetitive processes faster and easier.

How it works.

MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamp AP

Work faster with a clamp arm that won't drop.

  • The Anti-Pivot Coil Spring prevents the clamp arm from pivoting and dropping when switching workpieces in repetitive processes. Save time and work faster without having to reset your clamp height for every part.
  • Use any standard 1/2"–14º dovetail router bit to route your own tracks virtually anywhere. Clamp without limits, and never buy expensive T-track again.
MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamp AP

Clamp in two directions with a single clamp.

  • The included X-PAD™ simultaneously applies hold-down and in-line pressure as the clamp tightens. The combined forces keep your workpieces flat and eliminate the need for two or more different clamps.
  • The V-groove profile gives you two points of contact to clamp round or oblong stock with ease.

Build jigs like never before.

The MATCHFIT dovetail track system allows you to create your own tracks with just a router bit. It’s like an infinite supply of T-track without the cost of T-track.

MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamp AP
Create your own clamp tracks anywhere you can route.

Simply route a groove anywhere you need using a 1/2”–14º dovetail router bit.

MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamp AP
Secure material with ZERO interference.

The Dovetail Clamp AP slides below the surface, so you can secure material without the clamp getting in the way.

MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamp AP
Use with a spacer to secure material from a distance.

A spacer provides in-line pressure—leaving the top of the material unobstructed for sanding, flattening, template routing or CNC work.

MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamp AP
Clamp round stock with ease.

Turn the X-PAD™ 90º to clamp round and oblong-profile stock with a single clamp.

Over 30+ uses on table saws, router tables, jointers, and band saws.
MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamp AP

Table Saws

The GRR-RIPPER was built for the table saw. It acts as a moving blade guard, shielding your hands from the saw blade through the entire cut. Right out of the box, the GRR-RIPPER can cut stock down to ¼” x ¼”. Because it provides 3 directions of control, your cuts will be cleaner and more precise.

Router Tables

The GRR-RIPPER provides incredible command over your workpiece on the router table. Whether you’re using the fence or freehand routing, its powerful grip controls stock and protects your hands from dangerous spinning bits.

MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamp AP

Jointers

The GRR-RIPPER’s proprietary Green GRR-RIP material provides all the traction you need to properly flatten stock on the jointer. Because of its powerful grip, you can feed material over the cutter head without having to apply too much downward pressure.  The GRR-RIPPER makes proper face-jointing technique easy, and safe.

MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamp AP

Band Saws

The GRR-RIPPER's legs and main body maintain a constant 90 degree angle. It can be used on its side which is ideal for resawing on bandsaws. The GRR-RIPPER glides along the table top and applies even pressure against the fence with your hands clear of the blade. Even pressure means less blade drift, resulting in smoother cuts.

Got questions?

How are these clamps different from other F-style clamps?

They’re track clamps. The head of the MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamps are forged into a dovetail shape, compatible with any standard ½”–14º dovetail router bit. It moves through the track created by a router bit instead of an expensive metal t-track.

Can’t I just do the same thing with dog holes?

Not really.  Dog holes only allow clamps to go through the material with the head sticking out of the bottom.  Dog holes confine clamps to fixed locations, which aren’t always where you need them.  Dovetail Clamps can be positioned anywhere in a dovetail track, inside the material and out of the way.

Do I need the MATCHFIT Dovetail Router Bit in order to use Dovetail Clamps and Dovetail Hardware?

Only if you value your time.  Standard dovetail router bits cut to a sharp point at the top of the groove, which requires a decent amount of sanding after the track is routed.  Our router bit incorporates a 1/16” roundover to automatically smooth out the top of the track in a single pass.  Less time sanding means more time building.

Why dovetail tracks as opposed to T-slot?

When tightening anything inside of a t-slot, the pressure is applied perpendicular to the material surface, which may weaken the integrity of the track.  If a t-slot is cut into plywood, all of the force is concentrated on the small flange at the bottom, causing the plywood to delaminate. With a dovetail profile, the clamping force is distributed evenly along the entire wall of the track for an overall stronger hold.

Will MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamps and Dovetail Hardware fit into my Festool track?

The clamps will not, the hardware will, but that’s kind of missing the point.  The MATCHFIT system was designed to be compatible with a standard router bit profile, so that users wouldn’t actually need metal tracks.  However, some users have been known to file or grind about .005” off of the wide part of the clamp’s elbow and use them in their Festool track.  Our advice is to use Festool clamps with Festool tracks, and use Dovetail Clamps for everything else.
