I remember I found a tutorial on the internet but can not remember the author. Very easy to do and not expensive. The Threaded Rods are fixed in a wood and the other is moving to regulate with nuts.
I hope someone is useful as it was for me.

I would call it a clamp. Nice simple approach to get a deep reach clamp.

Yes, this type of clamp works really well, especially for deep reach. I have made a bunch of them and built an entire clamp system in 1978 which has seen a LOT of use since then. I did not see the idea in a magazine or other article. I’m finding very little new in magazines these days.

The quick acting handles make them a great deal more useful.

I didn’t take a photo of it, but if you take the handle off the tail and put it on the rod outside the clamp jaw (like the other one), you can exert tremendous force. With the threaded rod on either side of what you clamp, the pressure is equalized too.

How can you hit post twice? I guess I just did it. Sorry for the dup. I can’t see any way to erase.

Thanks Dank.
I could not fully understand the comment but if take out you use the press with the nuts in one hand and holds a lot of pressures … I have to try because I had not happened.
Greetings.

Restating the comment. If you take the handle (or nut) on the right hand rod in the picture and put it outside the wood jaw (like the other one) then you can squeeze something between the jaws and between the rods VERY hard. And because the rods are on either side of the squeeze, pressure is equalized across the wooden jaws between the rods. So the clamp has two modes, squeeze between the tapered jaws or squeeze between the rods. Just trying to clarify how useful these clamps really are.
