Hello,

A friend of my grandfather gave me some clamps today. I didn’t actually talk to him about them. He asked my Grandpa if I wanted them and I said SURE! Sight unseen. I guess he didn’t like them. I’m still trying to figure out how they work but it looks like if set-up properly you get pressure in four directions. Anyone ever use these?
They look like they would work good for edge glueing planks.

So who makes these?

This bracket looks to be backwards on this one….it can be flipped around….

I wonder what the original handle looked like?

Thanks,

I’ve never seen this type of clamp before. Very interesting. I am anxious to see if any of the other Lumberjocks can shine a light to what these clamps are for..

It’s a panel gluing clamp / caul all in one. They work in tandem with another.

Here’s what looks to be a more modern version of the same thing…China plastic I’m sure…

Yes you did Tom.. but.. I checked your internet history on your computer and it looks like you did some research on rockler.com prior to answering, but since this was an open internet test, you passed.. :)

This site is great. Lots of guys with good answers…

These clamps take a while to get used to, but they work great when you get used to them.
