A kit project I've been working on needs a six-foot clamp <snip> I
tackled the job of trying to design a clamp that'd be so inexpensive
that it could just be discarded once the kit had been assembled. <snip>
Yep, should work fine.
I've got to like homemade cam clamps. Had a couple of 4' long, but
wasn't using them, so cut them down to 2'. I'll probably want a couple
of 4' clamps soon.
Besides being extremely inexpensive to make, and simple, I like
'em, because with 4', you can clamp any size under 4'. 'Course if
you're clamping something a foot wide, shorter is handier - but you
"could". No prob to make one that the end bolts on a piece of 1"X2' or
2"x2', or even 2"X4', however long. Then just unbolt until the next
time. Better yet, hang it on the wall, next to the ceiling, until next
Used the cam clamp idea on my planer sled. Neat.
