I use these clamps from Rockler.
They are much easier to deal with and can also hold my sacrificaoa fence when needed.
In addition, I don’t need to cut the wood twice and waste some to get the right length.

Too much handling of stock if you’re cutting multiple pieces. It’s easier to cut them slightly oversized then trim to length with a stop block on the miter gauge, or a stop block on the fence (as Bob #2 shows above), or with a stop block on a RAS or miter saw.

Never thought of that use. My set holds the dado fence.
thanks, Bob #2.
