Is this supposed to be hand held? That threaded rod looks like a depth adjustment. Unless this thing can be clamped down, I would be reluctant to use it. – lol

I am pretty sure that this is used to hold the pieces together after the pocket holes are already drilled. The piece in the picture has 3 holes, the clamp is fitted into one of these holes and has an arbor that fits into the hole, and the screw clamp is used to pull the pieces together.

I think it’s a clamp to screw pocket holes together.

I saw this on their site. Looks like a handy tool. I can’t afford it right now, but I would like to get one, it looks very helpful.

If you go to Rockler’s site you can see a video demonstration of this clamp. Since Rockler is currently offering free shipping I’ll probably order one. They look handy and they address a problem I have had in the past.

mikedrums DIY version looks just as good (same concept)..

Is it good technology if the solution requires yet more technology because the original solution created a new problem?

I’m sticking with simple wood joints and glue.

Steve, I’m curious how you get your glue joints to dry without the use of “yet more technology” like clamps. :-)

Love the drainboard, by the way.

Have your say...
