Faster clamping
« on: February 14, 2008, 02:25 AM »
I was just thinking about an upcoming project which I would be clamping a lot of boards using the quick clamps through the MFT holes.
How about getting a few rubber washers to hold the clamp from sliding down in the hole?
Just slide them on before you slip the short end down through the top of the hole.

I/ve been doing that ever since I purchased a quick clamp about a year ago.  I just neglected to mention it here.  :-[  Sorry.

And, yes, the technique works very well.
