WOOD magazine review

Dovetailed clamps add a helping hand

Review Summary

These clamps solve so many problems, they’re like full-time helpers in the shop. Here’s how they work: Rout 14° dovetail slots (bit not included) into a board or panel, fit the F-style clamps into the slots, then clamp them to any surface where you need support. They work great at secur- ing an auxiliary fence to a tablesaw rip fence, as shown above. They’re also ideal for holding jigs in place (within reach of their throat depth) with no jaw interference.
They have a throat depth of 2-3/8" and jaw opening of 5-1/4".
