MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamps
The MATCHFIT Dovetail Clamps add clever workholding into the jigs and accessories in your shop, with a clever redesign of the classic F-style clamp. They work well with machines and workbenches alike, in any kind of shop – here are two simple examples we came up with.
From DIYers to professionals alike, the MATCHFIT is the smart choice for safety. See for yourself...
FYI fits Festool
It should be noted that in addition to being used as advertised (e.g. for custom clamping solutions using dovetail tracks you rout), these also fit Festool tracks and the Festool MFT (holes and side profiles), therefore representing a very viable alternative to Festool's screw clamps. UPDATE: I spoke a little too soon. While the clamp does slide into the Festool track, it can only be used on the ends of the track but cannot be advanced further unless material is ground off at the elbow of the clamp. It does work fully with the MFT and can advance in the side profiles. UPDATE #2: Another feature that I love about these clamps and failed to mention previously is the retaining screw. In other similar clamps, such as those by Festool, the screw arm stays on the bar by virtue of a dimple/bump in the metal of the bar. The dimple must be ground off if you want to separate the screw arm from the bar. Why would you want to separate those? Well, if you are using these or similar "elbowed" clamps as table clamps with 3/4" or 20mm (e.g. MFT) dog holes, you know that the thickness of the worktop must be no greater than 3/4", or the elbow can't make it through the dog hole unless you separate the two parts of the clamp and bring the bar from underneath. The retaining screw, such a simple creature convenience on these clamps, allows for an easy way to use this with dog holes in worktops that are greater than 3/4" thick.

These are very much worth a look if you are a woodworker.........
If you are not a woodworker you will not really appreciate what these clamps do. In summary, they clamp slides into a groove cut buy 14 degree dovetail cutting bit, very unique indeed. Just another way of using wood clamps to make your project go easier. Very unique indeed!
Fantastic quality. I have Jet
Just got these. Fantastic quality. I have Jet, Jorgensen, Irwin, and Bessey clamps to compare them to, these are top notch. Highly recommend them.

Can also be used in a paulk workbench
I don't know if this additional use has been mentioned but these clamps also fit nicely in my Paulk workbench giving me 4.5 inches of clamping space

It is very well made. This jig caught my interest because it was unique and allowed me to change the way I did some of my woodworking.
A great innovation in clamping that rarely comes along. Hopefully they come out with a quick clamp/release version soon.
