this is the second wooden clamp i came up with
for those who don’t have access to fancy metal ones

this clamp works with cams and variable stop blocks
that can be rotated for fine tuning

with a choice of different mounting holes
glue ups from narrow to wide can be done
limited only by the length they are made

some tape or wax to keep glue from sticking
and a box of accessories (different blocks and custom stops)
can enhance the use and range of different possibilities

the base has dado’s to keep the clamps and cams
from twisting the clamps
so glue-ups don’t slide around so much

this a just one way to use them for panel glueing
many others might be found to increase their range

enjoy

the previous wedge clamp is here

David…

Hey, when I’m dancing in the Rain, I cannot be here… :) :) (Pennies from heaven that we need badly)

On second thought, if you had another Clamping section in the middle (or more), it would help the Panel GlueUp much better… How are you going to handle the ‘from the Top’ instead of the bottom for it for balancing the Panel GlueUp?
... or do we just grab a bought one, slap it across the middle and Clamp it! :) :) Defeating the purpose.??

I am patiently waiting the next Brain Storm… :)

Thank you… You are a genius!

I like that design David, might have to borrow it. One for the favorites folder for sure.

I’ve had cams on the brain lately too. I’ve been mulling over a new portable table saw build.

The old one is showing it’s age. 15-20 years, can’t remember.

I’ve decided on a source for the cams I need. Bicycle seat adjustment levers.

I’m going to use them for locking down the rip fence. I’ve previously been using some of those little 6” bar clamps on my old homemade table saw.

Thanks for sharing David.

long time no see larry
you ready for some cool down under

well joe
this is a trial run from the R&D dept.
to check out the process
something for those poor souls that need more clamping
on a shoestring budget

i don’t really need one myself
since i have about 95 clamps in varying sizes

yo bob
just happy my brain still works
even if it does leak some

darrell by all means borrow
or accept as a gift
glad you still trucking
gives us something to do
as we grow up

Brilliant, very clampy..Us carpenters aren’t as dum as they thunk…

Those cams look like they could be handy on dogs in the bench…Noted…
