« Part 6: Saddle supports for the bar to rest on Part 7 of An exercise in making wooden bar clamps series Part 8: Reflections on the journey »

The clamps are almost finished! All that is needed are the crank handles.

First I cut some 10 mm round bar from my steel scrap heap,


which had to welded together


Next I filed a notch in the threaded rod


and then I welded the crank handle to the threaded rod
