I have 4 of these clamps still New in Box – the concept is to keep panels flat using 2 sections of 1/2 inch pipe. Still made in USA.
I got them from Woodworkers Supply – they sell now for 39.99 on that site. My Father in law recommended them, but I have never used them.
Asking 100 for all 4 + shipping.
This double pipe design prevents thin stock from buckling during edge gluing. The work to be clamped is placed between the two pipe lengths, which are then turned to support work “above” and “below” as clamping load is applied. The #53 mounts on two 1/2” black pipes (any length) with both ends threaded (pipe not furnished). (NOTE: One pipe should be cut 3” longer than the other to facilitate opening the clamp to apply it across work.)
