Shop Tip of the Day
Pressed for a really good clamp?
Sometimes you just don't have the right size clamp for clamping odd-shaped projects such as ring bowls and vases.Use your drill press. Center the workpiece on your drill-press table. Apply pressure with the quill, using a scrap piece of wood in between to protect the project. Then lock the quill in position. This works well when ordinary clamps aren't deep enough to fit.--F.F.
