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.

Now those are some clamps I think I can afford.
And thanks racerglen for the info about the sliding nuts.

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!
