Clamping Tools.

Clamps are necessary to align pieces while glue sets or while inserting fasteners and even while drilling holes in multiple pieces.  The kinds of clamps I show here start from the small binder clips I used to align popsicle sticks while I assembled and glued the crane boom up to C-clamps and Vise-Grips used to apply some force to really hold metal pieces in alignment while drilling and welding.  In-between these two are the bar clamps.  These are useful for holding wood while gluing or to hold guides on th wood while sawing or routing. If there is one thing there never seems to be enough of it is clamps.

By the way… the Irwin bar clamps now come with the ability to reverse the ends and make them into spreaders… It looks lime my original idea is now commercial!
