Band Clamps Use Metal and Fabric Straps for Box and Cabinet Assemblies
posted on by
Metal strap and fabric band clamps Band clamps, made from fabric or metal straps, are designed to assist in gluing up rectangular projects like boxes or chests, or with irregular edges and shapes.

Employing either a fabric or a metal strap that wraps around an assembly, band clamps are great for clamping rectangular, rounded or even irregularly shaped projects. Jorgensen’s heavy-duty band clamp has a strong screw and crank that tightens its long canvas strap with great force. For lighter work, MLCS’s Merle clamp has a metal band to apply clamping force, and WolfCraft’s one-hand band clamp tightens its fabric band with a ratcheting action. Both include corner blocks that slide on the band, to use for rectangular frame, box and cabinet glue-ups.
