Today I made a couple of cam clamps from Ash :) These will come in handy once I get the time to start making some musical instrument.

Yogi,do you happen to have a drawing of the plans for those cammys? I’d like to make a couple dozen sets for the shop. I had a couple that I made cauls for with the radii of fingerboards and neck profiles for gluing up fingerboards in addition to handi clamps. I’d like to have enough that I can have a couple builds going on at the same time. I love my gobar deck for clamping braces but I love cam clamps for holding down top sets or back sets for planing and what not.
