Making A Wooden Bar Clamp
Chris   January 28, 2014   1   0  
Something we learn as a carpenter, or maybe more so as a woodworker, is that we can never have too many clamps. Building up a collection of clamps is usually something that is done over many years, which helps spread out the costs. But if you need clamps now and don't have a bunch of money, there is another option—make your own.

Universal Miter and Angle Clamping Tool

Do you ever have tricky angled joints that you need to clamp together? One of the ways we do this is by saving the cutoff piece and using it to provide a square surface to clamp off of. Well what if you didn't save the cutoffs or you are working in the field with finished materials?

If you ask any woodworker to make a list of tools they need, high on their list you are sure to find clamps.

Besides being a commercial for Festool products, in the video below, Gary Katz does a really good job showcasing and explaining the new Bessey Auto-Adjust Toggle Clamps.

When I first posted about these clamps back in July, I also posted a video from Bessey that showcases the clamps, but what I like about the Gary Katz video is that he shows us how, as a woodworker or as a finish carpenter, you can use...
Bessey Auto-Adjust Toggle Clamp
Chris   July 20, 2011   1   1  
Toggle clamps are the go to clamps when it comes to jigs and fixtures for hobby woodworking and even large scale manufacturing. Their ability to secure your workpiece in just a matter of seconds is what makes them ideal for many clamping needs. However, toggle clamps do have a downside, they do require a bit of setup time to get the clamps adjusted to the size of material you are clamping. If you need to change from one size of material to another, you are better off just build a jig for each size. All of adjustments...
