I need to hold small pieces of wood in place to be drilled by a mini computer-numerical control (CNC) mill. I have a book stand (no affiliation) that has two "springed pegs" fastened with screws:
Springed pegs allow very thick book
I think these would do very well and I could not find such springed pegs separately. Are they available under a different name?
Update: My current solution prevents the pieces from shifting horizontally by slotting them in a pocket with their exact size with 5 mm of depth. I have been holding the pieces in place with double-sided tape and it works. A milling job takes about a minute and I have hundreds of pieces, so I am looking for a quicker solution. The machine uses a downcutter that presses the wood into the bed, so I think light tension would be enough.
