KREG Automax bench clamps T bolts GPO-3 plastic or other strong material, 3/8" to 1/2" (10mm to 12 mm) thick. About 4" x 2" per unit (100mm x 50mm) A knob, can be shop made. Nylon Washers
Shaper Origin 1/8" bit. 1/4" bit. Double sided tape.
Place and cut the top first, and let the 1/8" cutter cut down into the spoilboard a little. Delete the file just cut, then place the bottom file using the same anchor point at the same grid point. Flip the workpiece and line the 1/8" hole up on the holes left in the spoilboard, then cut the bottom. Pockets are just deep enough to flush the hardware. If you have a tool with a large T-slot (example, sliding table saw) the adapter can be used.
