I see a lot of finished machines that seem to have a uniform grid of holes into which hockey-stick-looking clamps are screwed down with machine screws (see attached for example). It seems to be a standard way of doing hold-down clamps, but I can’t find anyone describing the exact construction.
Here’s my supposition based on the picture – is this the right way?
To make the holes, I see no reason why the machine can’t do that to itself, right?
Next, people seem to be using machine screws, so are they adding tee nuts on the back of every hole to provide machine screw threads?
I know this may be remedial, I’m just surprised I couldn’t find anyone actually talking about this step…maybe I’m just googling the wrong thing?
