Bench Pin and Anvil
Use the bench pin and anvil for supporting your bassoon reed while filing. The bench pin is 1 3/4" wide and sticks out about 2 1/2 inches.
An adjustable clamp enables you to attach the anvil to a table or desk top up to 2" thick.
George Sakakeeny uses a homemade version of this in his book "Making Reeds Start to Finish" which can be purchased on iTunes.
