Holdfast Leather Pads

image4I had some leather scraps from another project and came up with these little leather shoes or pads for my holdfasts seen here hanging under my workbench.  Now that my holdfast are wearing shoes they rarely get used without them and everything I hold suffers less damage.  I have seen similar leather pads used by other craftspeople, but this is of my own design.  However as old as the holdfast is I am sure that generations before me found similar and familiar forms to protect their work.
