Make a few DIY bar clamps from scrap lumber. They work incredibly well and will help me savie a bundle.

Nice job! How’s the clamping pressure since the block is only held in place with a single dowel?

Cool bar clamp! Looks great and I’m sure it can handle the job. Well done! Thanks for sharing.

Been away from site for awhile. I checked out the video. Good job. Informative. You must be pretty strong. I’m thinking I might have used a cradle for the dowels?

Video technical question? seems volume was low on the mic? :) Also would recommend a disclaimer for self protection? Stumpy Nubbs or Charles Neil have done a nice job with that.

Nice web site, Great concept & Logo.
