The Family Handyman

Holding small workpieces near router bit operations is risky for both you and the workpiece. Whenever possible, clamp them in a handscrew. This trick works great for cutting shapes on a band saw, drilling holes with a drill press and sanding with a stationary sander. The handscrew’s bulk absorbs the power tool’s vibration to ensure a much smoother result. Best of all, your hands stay well out of danger.
