They almost look like spikey version of clamps used in a bench dog hole. I can't think of what they're called for the life of me. I want to say "hold-down clamp", but that doesn't sound right.

Why, they're holes for bench dogs!

Woodworking benches sometimes have holes down into them at some interval. A round stake that's longer than the hole is deep (usually with some sort of flat face on top above the hole) or "dog" is placed in the hole to keep workpieces from sliding around. Other tools like the clamping thing I'm thinking of also use those holes.

One kind of dog:


Heck, Rockler even has the clamps I was thinking of. Heck, they even call them "hold-down clamp":

Still doesn't help solve the mystery picture though. At one inch maximum dimension, I'm haphazardly guessing!

I'm up and have taken care of my babies. Buck won't fall out for another hour at least.

Yep, kitties are up and have had their breakfast food and warmed milkie. The new kittens are just now getting a bath from their mommy.

Yes, they are used in our business. I've never seen them in a hobby shop or hardware store, but a hardware store would be the most likely place to purchase them. No, they're not magnetic.

Sorry, Doc, not bench dogs. Buck has plenty of bench dogs, but these would definitely not work.

Good morning my dear.......and welcome to a beautiful new day.......I have not a single, solitary clue as to what the picture is that you've posted....I hope that someone more savvy comes along and guesses it like that......then I'm sending out a hit squad..........
