The long arm of the clamp. I needed a way to apply some linear pressure to the squares for my chess board during glue up. “C” clamps or other “twist” clamps I’m afraid will tweak the squares plus I don’t have or know of any that have the kind of reach needed.
There is a t-nut on the underside of the baseplate to accept the threaded rod. Then I screw the baseplate down to anchor the rod. Threading a wing nut applys pressure to the bar that is “hinged” by resting it on a block..to the right in picture 1. The you get downward clamping pressure on the other end.
Works like a charm!
I haven’t started glue up on the board yet and the clamp is already coming in handy.
Thanks for looking.
