Good day

That’s my version of screw clamps and I would like to share it with you.

As you noticed, all my jigs and fixers doesn’t look “Wow” but the do the job and this one is no exception.

I used 3/8” threaded rod.

I preferred to use wing nuts because sometimes I use the clamps to hold boards vertically, to work on them or to hold them during assembly and the knob would be on the way (I mean, the knob diameter is greater than the clamp thickness), the wing nut can be turned while the clamp is flat on the workbench as in the pic.

I use the wooden piece with the slot, normally to open the wing nut but it can be used also to apply more press than with the wing nut.
Usually, I use the wing nut and if I need very high pressure, I use the wrench.

Regards
niki

These look quite useful. Another great jig. Thanks for sharing.

P. S. If your not going to write a book, you should at least submit some of them to the woodworking magazines.

Thank you Wayne

Wood Magazine “bought” from me the rights to publish the “45° cutting sled” and the “Triangle Copy and Past”, they have to publish it sometime within the next 4 months (the contract is for 6 months) but I will never know because I’m not subscribed to any WW magazine.
