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.

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 Rack, Space Saving

Build this simple clamp storage system (Photo at this link). With this system, the clamps hang on plywood holders that are mounted to a pegboard wall unit. To save space, sturdy support arms on the holders let you stack clamps face to face, several clamps deep. So even a small bracket can hold as many as four clamps.

C-Clamp Handle

I often use a C-clamp when setting up a tool. But sometimes the sliding bar, used to tighten the clamp, gets in the way. Here is a solution.

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.

Clamping Table, Knock Down

Trying to glue up large panels or frames on a small workbench can be difficult. I often found myself working in the middle of the floor. So, I built this simple knock-down clamping table to make the job a little easier.

Clamp, Miter Joint Corner

Gluing a miter joint is a challenge . There just is not an easy way to clamp it. So I came up with a shop-built corner clamp that uses wedges to push (or press) the mitered pieces in place.

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.

Bench Holdfast

It seems to me that bench holdfasts are a lot less common these days than they used to be. That is too bad -- they are really a great way to secure boards to a workbench. If your bench has holes for bench dogs, you can build one for yourself. All you need is a common bar clamp, a scrap piece of bar stock, and a few minutes.

Clamp, Quick Change

Switching the flexible hose on a portable dust collector from one tool to another is a nuisance. I am always fiddling with a screwdriver, loosening and tightening the hose clamp that holds it in place. To speed things up, I made my own hose clamp from a clothes hanger and a scrap of wood. This clamp fits around the hose and then snaps tight like the wire clip on an old-fashioned canning jar.

Clamp, Small Parts

Occasionally, I will need to sand a small wooden part on a drum or disk sander. But holding onto small parts can be a challenge. A pair of pliers could do the job, but I wanted something with a softer grip. So I came up with the small parts clamp shown in the photo.
