I decided to create another clamping option to assist in holding down material. I came up with these L shaped brackets. One has 5 holes that will directly fit my threaded wasteboard file, and the other has slots so you can adjust the fit anyway you'd need to according to what the material needs (I'm imagining its good for round stock). This will work on any branded CNC, but are built specifically for my wasteboard and the Shapeoko 3. Carbide Create is required to open the file, but it will create g code for use on any g code sender (i.e. UGS, Carbide Motion, Easel)

Consider buying the file from my Etsy shop. It helps support what i do so I can create more free content :)
The Etsy listing also includes the .svg file for use in most CAD programs.

I've also created a short video to help show some of the clamping options you have with your CNC. This includes the new L shaped clamp brackets.
