Shop Tip of the Day
Link Your Clamps to Fit the Work

Band clamps work well on large or irregular-shaped objects, but as a turner, I often need multiple clamps spread out along the length of a cylinder blank. I found that stainless steel hose clamps are an inexpensive alternative.

Available in a variety of sizes, several clamps can be linked end-to-end when I need to encircle larger pieces. Added bonuses are that glue squeeze-out is easily scraped off the clamps and they don't rust.
