This pair of supports, used as a pair or individually, allows you to do assembly work more efficiently. The second pic shows an example of aligning two boards at right angles to be joined using a pneumatic nailer. Numerous shop uses for carcasses, drawers and jointing applications.

Very clever, I like the cam locks as well. Make it useful when you only have one hand free.

Fantastic design and build. The ingenuity of woodworkers to solve problematic situations never ceases to amaze me. Great job here.
