I had some left over maple and aluminum laying around and needed to clean up the shop. I made some cam clamps.
I had enough for 11 clamps, 5 6” reach and 4 * reach. I did need to get an additional 4’ piece of aluminum and 100 1/8” roll pins. I now have enough roll pins left to make 11 more clamps. I need to watch the maple.

Those clamps are sure handy for reaching further into some glue ups that regular clamps won’t reach. Nicely done Bruce.

Nice job, Bruce. I need to make some of these. Where did you pick up those ⅛” roll pins?
