Nice work. These are great clamps and easy to use. They used to sell them at Swedish chain store here, but unfortunately they discontinued them, and a lot of other woodworking tools as well. Thanks for showing us how to make them. I might make some myself from your plan. Thanks for posting!

Thanks a lot for the simple approach on making them.

I Love these, and I need to make them , but if my wife see’s one more project on my list, she’s probably gonna walk out.

What did you use as a pivot point for the cam and to anchor the bottom of the clamp in place? Also, what is the purpose of the screw.

Sorry so many questions…I want to try again and get it right this time!

Glad you shared them even if they were not your idea because I have never seen them before. They are now on my to-do list as well. Better looking then any you can buy.
