• For clamping, use edge of U-stamp which is closest to ball
joint because a greater force is created at this edge.
• Make sure U-clamp can rest on workpisce and table with
hole in ball joint over a slot in table.
• Slide stud with T-nut into slot.
• Slide U-clamp over stud and into position to clamp on as
much of the workpiece as possible.
• Screw the flange nut onto stud.
• Make sure T-nut is properly shouldered in slot and the stud
is perpendicular to table.
• Tighten flange nut to securely clamp workpisce.
