MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamps (2-pack)
CLAMP WITHOUT LIMITS

Create your own clamp tracks with just a router bit.

With any standard 1/2” 14-degree dovetail router bit, you can create your own clamp tracks, eliminating the need for expensive aluminum tracks. It’s an entire system designed to give you all the functionality of T-track and T-track accessories, at a fraction of the cost.

Henry Wang, Microjig Founder

Henry Wang, Founder of MICROJIG, needed a better way to secure a tall table saw fence extension. Traditional clamps and c-clamps either got in the way of the cut or limited the height of the fence. By using the dovetail shaped clamp arm, he could get a stronger track and slide the clamp all the way down to the fence without limiting the height of the fence. Soon, we reliazed there is a vast number of versatile applications for a clamp that hides within a track you make.

How it works.

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.

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.

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.

Clamp without limits.

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” 14-degree 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 as opposed to t-slot?

Then 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.

How long of a dado can I cut with the Dado Stop?

It depends on the saw.  The Dado Stop is designed to make crosscut dados using a miter gauge.  You must be able to register off of Leg 3 with your miter gauge in the miter slot, and without your workpiece in front of the blade without touching it.

How wide of a dado can I cut with the Dado Stop?

The Dado Stop can cut dados from ⅛” to ⅞” using a full kerf blade, and up to 1-13/16” using a stacked dado blade set.
