Has anyone tried grinding the peen off of an older K-Body to use the
clamp as a spreader?
I noticed the newer versions have a removable plastic stop. I'm
figuring that I can use a bolt or clevis as a keeper if I modify the clamp.
I am sure the clamp will work in the opposite direction. I have used my
CabinetMasters several times in that set up and am very pleased with having
that capability. As for the plastic stop, IIRC that is an adaptation
similar to the what the CabinetMasters have. It acts as a stop but more
importantly it is a foot that holds the clamp up off the surface enough that
the sliding part of the clamp will slide freely back and forth along the bar
with out having to lift that part up off the table to make adjustments. You
might as well fabricate that little piece as well and really make the clamps
convenient to use.
