Quick Poll

There are some things that woodworkers always seem to not have enough of: Time for projects, space to work and clamps.

A healthy collection of clampsAfter all, the common refrain of woodworkers is there are never enough clamps in your shop when you need them. Those complicated glue-ups seem to require just about every clamp in your collection – and in your neighbors’ collections as well.

So, today, tell us about your clamp situation. Do you have enough, or, well, do you need more?

  1. I have a decent collection. But then again, who couldn’t a few more from time to time?
    Storage becomes a problem after a while too.

  2. I have a lot, but never enough.
    Space for more clamps is no where to be found though.

  3. Since beginning my butcher block office desk project I find myself rapidly depleting my stock of HF clamps. At each glue up I tend to squeeze at least one to death and my 2 longest ones no longer grip anything. I have finally resorted to using home made ones. Several 2 inch wide wooden strips with blocks glued to one end and a block bolted in place to allow me to drive in shims to apply pressure. Necessity IS the mother of invention!

  4. I have pipe clamps right now but thinking seriously about switching to bessey or jet clamps
