no previous part Part 1 of My shop series Part 2: (second) Clamp modification »

Now I,m retired there is more time to reorganize my shop. Ten years ago I made my shop set up. From time to time bought some stuff and reorganisation was more than necessary. One of the things I did was making a bench you could see at

In this blog series I want to show some modifications and some things I made the last time.

I bought a very cheap clamp (Euro 1,95) and changed it to use as a festool guide quick clamp. Below you can see how I did it.

First I disassembled the common clamp.

Grinded the top of the rod.

Cut off the grinded top.

Then I welded the top perpendicular on the clamp rod.

And after grinding the changed clamp fitted into the saw guide rail
