Would anybody know where to get a glue press to glue boards flat. I can find them for end to end but not for flat.
I want to glue up to build rifle stock.
Thanks for the help. Bob

Bob … I would joint the faces of the boards to get them flat, then glue and clamp, using as many clamps as you can get on to achieve even clamping pressure.

Not sure why you would need a special ‘press’.

A bookbinding press will work on smaller parts.

K-body style clamps exert even pressure for laminations.

If you don’t have flat and parallel faces, even a heavy
press won’t eliminate gaps in all your glue-ups.
