For a softwood the recommended psi is 100-150psi (eg. Titebond recommendation) and a sash clamp can apply ~400psi (ball park). However, is this divided over the distance of clamp contact with wood?
What it boils down to is how do the Titebond recommendations relate to how many clamps will be needed?
Their recommendations are that 100-150 for softwoods is needed with clamps every 12 or so inches. Does this mean that you need a clamp capable of delivering 1200psi for that 12 inch distance to make the minimum psi recommendation? Or, do they mean that you need a clamp delivering 100 psi and this will be delivered to all 12 inches and the psi in effect is not divided?
Hope this makes sense,
