C-Clamps and Wooden Handscrews for Parallel and Angled Surface Clamping
posted on April 1, 2009 by Matt Hocking
Jet Tools C-Clamps C-clamps are woodworking classics, and still in use for a reason, they provide an inexpensive and easy to use clamping option for almost any size job.

C-clamps have been a tried-and-true part of a woodworker’s basic clamping arsenal, offering lots of clamping power for smaller jobs. Woodstock International’s D3200-series C-clamps feature a quick-release, allowing gross changes in clamping thickness without having to spin the screw around and around. The limitation of most C-clamps is their relatively shallow throat depth, but deep-throat clamps, such as Woodstock International’s model D2800, allow a greater reach for clamping wider assemblies.

Hand screws have long wood jaws that also offer a deep reach and can clamp both parallel or angled surfaces. To save money, you can buy handscrew kits that supply the hardware while you make your own wood jaws.
