I recently viewed a project online that used what they called hog nose clamps to hold a corner together. Can anyone tell me what the heck they are???

A lot of people that build picture frames use them. Rockellor’s and Woodcraft and other woodworking companies carry them in their stores. I have never used them but have considered getting a set. They come with a special plier that spreads the clamp open for positioning.

In the farm country where I grew up they were called hog rings they were “installed” in hogs noses so they would not root excessively (hogs root or tear up the ground in search of something to eat, http://www.farmcollector.com/Equipment/No-rooting-period.aspx). The rings are similar to the rings used by upholsters to attach fabrics to metal frames.Picture frame type clamps are often referred to as hog clamps.Examples:http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=6525http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=11060

Just for the heck of it:http://www.garymkatz.com/ToolReviews/miter_clamps.htmlI use these all the time and the price was right. They also are easier (IMHO) to use and work surprisingly well.
