« Part 8: Reflections on the journey Part 9 of An exercise in making wooden bar clamps series no next part

I decided that it was time to upgrade to SketchUp. I used my Heavy Duty Bar Clamps as a learning exercise. I made a few modifications on the original plan regarding the front jaw. The plans can be downloaded here.

Another mod that I would suggest is to use steel or aluminium for the draw bar on the back jaw as the wooden dowels don’t fare so well when pressure is applied.
