Hello everyone!
Has long had in mind to do some more clamps as mine several times not enough.
So cut several wood and got down to work.
One detail is that I made smaller, as he had done before were too bulky unnecessarily. Another quality is to use a new system for the handles and did round using a “hole saw”. In them, it does work, just requires some care and patience to cut. I should also like to thank Jim ( gift who sent me the T-nuts that could not get here. Thanks Jim!.
So these clamps are traveling t-nuts.
The result was very good and remain very pleased with the made​​. They work to perfection and I will be very useful. To use them for some of carob and cedar handles.
The other project I was doing in simultaneous, was a special press to cutting board. For the size of the same I saw my short presses proved difficult to handle when you try to paste many small parts. So seme happened to use a wood background, hit some “edges” and two of them put a threaded rod system to use as presses. Still do not know if it is, but I hope so be it. Use a separation of 7 cm between each press, thus more or less uniformly cover the sides. You may wonder … why not a single press on each side? My tools are very slim so often use woods that are not accurate or the same size, so in those cases I need to do different pressures in different places. Hence this design.
I hope I have not wearied, but I wanted to show it for what it’s the idea to someone else.
Greetings for all!

Hi Gerado
I’m glad that you were able to make good use of those T-nuts.
Best regards

Interesting jig. Good idea to be able to apply pressure where it is needed most, especially, as you say, when the joints can not be made “perfect”.

Muy util proyecto. Estoy buscando argentinos para ver las experiencias de hobbystas (y profesionales) locales y encontre tus cosas. Lo de las tuercas T me dio mucha gracia, aca en Parana tampoco consegui, aunque en la ferreteria me dijeron que de vez en cuando traen. Las llaman “tuercas clavables”, un nombre bastante razonable por lo menos, jaja. Saludos y espero seguir en contacto!!
