I need to ask a few clamp questions to get this one out of my system and get some knowledge on the subject.
So ....which clamps do you use and why when doing a glue up.
Bar clamps aluminum type
Bar Clamps steel type these are I beam but there are ones record used to make similar to this with a pin.
Bessy/Jet/ I dunno/ Parrallel clamps
What length. I always get caught with the Texan approach of bigger is better but i am finding it aint. Then you look at the ranges and what size ? Dont ask me what work i do. I am looking to be able to do general bits of everything. THis is why i bought long ones in past but they way too long.
What length of clamp do you use most often for quick clamping in the quick release bar clamps. Out of this range
Not only length but dept of jaw. Is 6 inch to short for general here and there clamping? What make? I am not impressed with Jorgenson.
I just never seem to have the right clamp and its either too much pressure or too little or the clamp is too heavy.
I got a big glue up coming and i am looking to "try do it right".
The aluminium bar clamps i have were a special buy at LV but i found out why the hard way. Not only do they bend but at the ends they only got one rivet which allows the head to move out of square.
