Eccentric sanders are a good tools for sanding, but it is not possible to use them if you don’t clamp the piece you want to sand.
In woodworkers accessories univers, there’s a lot of way to do this, but sometimes it’s good to build our own tools. Then I imagine this clamping system.

This projet was inspired by a previous clamping system for Domino and use the golden spirale for the one-way translation of the mobile part.

Maybe it can interest someone here. And in this case, you can download the plan on L’Air du Bois (a french woodworkers community).

Your clamping solutions are really great! Thanks a lot for sharing!

Edit:
I have to correct myself. They are not…your whole woodwork is really great! :)

Great clamping method, something I’ve been puzzeling over for some time & you’ve just provided the solution. Thank you very much for the details on How To, great video.
Thanks again, very much appreciated.
