Lots of nice clamps out there on the market. Sometimes its nice to make your own. The first one is made out of threaded pipe and I have used this for small glue ups. The second one I used for gluing up 15 drawers for my cabinets.

would be kinda annoying to move the nuts around since you can’t put a drill on it, but w/e. ill prob end up using this at least once.

A quick thought..
Lee Valley actualy sold seperately the quarter 20 speed nuts for their four corner clamp rig.
I made a huge one for chair work, all you do is have the nut backed off a bit, it moves “sideways” and disengages the thread, then you slide it up to the point you need it and tighten.

Sliding nuts, who would have ever thought. That is just the thing that takes this entire concept to a new level. Thanks RickRogers7 and racerglen!
