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 (http://lumberjocks.com/JR45) 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!
