Could someone help me out please? I’m looking for some plans to build my own cam clamps. I’ve tried the Google search but can’t seem to find what I need. Thanks.

I use a nice library of woodworking plans that has just about everything you can think of. You can try there from my website but I have no idea if it has anything for clamps. That is an odd request.

I guess I’ll just design and draw out my own plans for these clamps. Thanks anyways.

I just recently acquired some antique wooden screw clamps that use wooded screws to tighten them. See picture

After examining these clamps I am confident that it would not be hard to make your own if you have the right tap and die. Then I found the tap and die I wanted at woodcraft


I ordered this tap and die and when it arrives I hope to make several of my own custom clamps. I will be designing special clamps for special situations.
