Clamp Blocks

When edge gluing boards, I use scrap blocks to distribute the clamping pressure and avoid marring the edges. But sometimes the blocks shift out of position or fall to the floor before I get the clamps tightened. To solve this problem, I made a number of U-shaped clamp blocks that slip over the edge and stay right where I put them.

Clamp Holder, Clip On Lamp

I like the extra light that a clip-on lamp gives when I work. The problem is there never seems to be a convenient place to attach one.

Clamp Holder, Overhead

I found that I had accumulated so many small clamps that storing them was becoming a problem. So I resolved to come up with a storage system that would keep my numerous bar clamps and spring clamps out of the way but still within easy reach. It turned out that the perfect spot was right over my head.

Clamp Rack, Pipe

I have accumulated quite a pile of pipe clamps, but never found a convenient way to store them. Recently some left over PVC plumbing pipe gave me an idea. The snap-in pipe clamp rack you see in the photo is the result of this inspiration.

Here is a quick scan of the hold-downs I use on my bench, crosscut sled, drill-press table, other jigs and fixtures, anywhere they may be needed in my shop where I can install a threaded insert.

Toggle Bolt Hold-Downs

My portable workbench gets pressed into service as a stand for several of my benchtop tools. But instead of breaking out the clamps every time I want to attach a tool to the workbench, I came up with a shop-made hold-down. It is faster and easier to use than clamps, and it can be made from a few pieces of commonly available hardware and a wood dowel.

Pipe Clamp Supports

When gluing up panels, I like to remove the glue squeeze-out before it sets. But pipe clamps laid flat on my assembly bench left me no room to clean the underside of the joints. So I found a way to take my panel-making to a higher level.

Clamp Pads Magnetic

Whenever I use pipe clamps, I like to place a block of wood between the clamp and my workpiece. This clamping pad helps prevent damaging the surface of the wood. The problem is trying to hold the block in place as you tighten the clamp.
