2 Pack of 4 Way Pressure Clamps For Clamping Panels – Using Pressure From All Four Directions. Ideal For Woodworkers and Cabinet and Furniture Makers (2 four way pressure clamps)
Clamping panels doesn’t have to be difficult. This clamp system is designed for the sole purpose of clamping panels using pressure from the top, bottom and sides all at the same time!
Clamping panels can certainly be a challenge. Especially when we try to use everyday pipe clamps or bar clamps. While these types of clamps work fairly well on certain glue up projects, the one thing they donâ€™t do at all is apply pressure from the top and bottom of the panels during glue up. In fact, with all the pressure being applied on both sides, bar and pipe clamps will almost certainly bow, buckle or rack your panel glue up project.
Letâ€™s make racked panel glue ups a thing of the past! The uniquely designed 4 way pressure solves this age old issue by applying pressure to all four sides of your panel glue up. With a simple turn of the rotating clamp handle, all four sides of the clamp will draw inward at the same time. This provides equal pressure on to your panel and prevents bowing, buckling, or racked panels.
Build any length clamp with the durable plastic bars with 4 notches for maximum adjustability to handle a variety of stock widths. Clamp can be used for boards up to 6 inches in thickness by simply adjusting the clamp width capacity with the appropriate number of notches. Turn the handle clockwise to tighten the clamp and turn the handle counter clockwise to release pressure. The 4 way pressure clamp is equipped with side pressure pads to prevent damaging your stock.
Now you can confidently glue up wide boards, shelving, table tops, and more up to 6â€ thick. To setup the clamps simply attach the clamp to any length 2 x 2â€™s (2â€ x 4â€ ripped in half) with the the wood screws that are provided, apply wood glue to your project, set the clamps on to your panel boards and turn handle to tighten the clamp on all four sides. We recommend that you place a 4 way pressure clamp every 12â€ to 18â€ for best results.
This clamp package comes with two full 4 way pressure clamp assemblies. Includes: 2 each rotating handle assemblies, 2 each tailstock assemblies, 4 each side pressure pads and 12 each 4 notch bars. Together, this setup will allow you to create two 4 way pressure clamps. More than one clamp is generally recommended for any project over 12â€ in length. Wood is required for setting up the clamp. Wood is NOT included.
