Hmmmm, not seen one of these in action. You mind showing me a pic on how it is utilized to hold the frame?
I like it! Since I make plenty of frames myself I would really like to see it work so I can make one too.
Thanks!

I’ve got a “stick-man” jig (that’s what I call it) that I made outta scraps basically. Works like a 30 dollar one

Hey Jack,

Nice clamp, I made one like that too. A couple of times I needed to clamp a frame with a panel already in place, and it made me move the center clamp bars to the opposite side of the clamp as the corner pieces, here’s a pict to illustrate.

Keep posting man!

Thanks for posting this. I’ve had one of those clamps hanging on my wall for years and never could figure out how to use it. A friend gave it to me after he couldn’t figure it out either. After seeing this someone needs to slap me upside the head for not figuring this one out! Just proves you’re never too old to learn and most of the time you don’t know half of what you thought you did! I learned something today!!

It never ceases to amaze me how clever the Lumberjocks community is. I was rolling the dice and came across this jig. As it so happens this solves a big problem I have. Thanks for posting the pictures.
