I made the Woodworking Tips Small Parts clamping Jig.

I did not make the front jaw movable as in the plan however.

Jim was kind enough to send me some T-Nuts (which I am unable to get in South Africa) and that has made it reletively easy to make my own knobs as shown below.

Nice clamping jig. I can’t read the instructions photo, how do you protect against accidental gluing to the wooden clamp?

Just follow the link (Woodworking Tips Small Parts clamping Jig) which takes you to the original webpage with readable instructions.
I use wax paper to prevent the glue from sticking to the clamp. I also put some polly on and put floor wax on the jaws and bottom which should prevent stickiness.

Hi George,
Glad to see that you made good use of those T-nuts. That’s a useful looking jig.
