There are designs available to build one yourself... And not everyone even uses one.

Do you know where I can get the plans? As I say I'm new to this and need a bit of help, I think a Jig might help as I'm all fingers and thumbs at the moment.

Take a look at Lynn Hannings' head and frog holders, and then look at Brad Dorsey's. You may decide you don't really want a one-piece jig, after you see these.

How about the clamp from Lemuel... the sponsor of this forum...

I use one like it and would not change.... but there are lots of other opinions!
Cheers, Mat

Well...here is one very simple design, for a start:

There are some that are very complex...one used to be on the Musictrader website, but seems to have been removed. There are others, though.

Here's one that is more complex...and it seems they offer to sell the plans, but I am not sure.
