Being VERY happy with the performance of the Shopmade Bar/Pipe Clamp I made a week ago, I decided to try making a parallel clamp based on the same basics.
This is how it turned out, and I am pleased with the performance I have seen during testing.
The basics are the same as for the Shopmade Bar/Pipe Clamp, but the headstock has a 5mm bolt reinforcing the headstock to keep it as secure as possible.
The Parallel “slide” at the tailstock is built “around” the same locking backplate as on the Shopmade Bar/Pipe Clamp
The wood used is oak.
The sides of the “tailstock” are made from 9mm baltic birch
This clamp can of course be made to custom length, depending on the length of steel pipe.
Hope you want to try to build your own
