I recently bought the Gramercy Tool Holdfasts from LV.
I see lots of people using these type of holdfasts on Youtube in benches similar to mine in thickness and material without issue.
My bench has 3/4" round dog holes running down both sides that are 3.5" deep.
When I strike the holdfasts, ( hard, harder, soft, this side that side), they just seem to bounce off the piece or when they do "set" they have little to no real grip.
I have seen someone on-line peen the sides of Holdfasts with a nail set to create dimples that supposedly provide grab, but I am reluctant to do this as they would be un returnable if that does not work.
Anyone else had this problem, and found a solution?
