Just start! Indeed. You make home ownership exciting as you make it telltale your personality. I love wood!! Can’t wait to play.
Well Done. Thank you.
Thanks Glen!!!! Awesome!!!! I was wondering about if they had any use myself!!!!😎👍🤘
OLD LEATHER SMITH here. Terrific, very useful Thanks. GOD’S BLESSINGS ✝️⚾🙃
Disagree that this doesn’t have any mind-blowing tips or tricks. This was great. I’ve been woodworking for years and still got some serious inspiration for this under appreciated simple tool. Great video!
Thank you for the great information. You caused me to rethink the use of these clamps.
Good tips. Thanks for sharing
Even though I have a vintage cabinetmaker’s bench with 2 vises, I found several helpful tips from your great video.
Great ideas, clear explanations! Thanks!
Nice presentation. These wood clamps were a pain to use in wood shop in high school. We weren’t instructed in the use of them. But now they should be owned by every wood worker.
Great video on these wood clamps. I’ve cut grooves in the clamping surfaces with holes perpetual through the clamp to use in drilling pipes and dowels. Best use is getting your fingers out of the way.,
Outstanding video, I never would have thought of utilizing these clamps like you demonstrated. Last time I used this style of clamps was in Junior High Shop class in 1977.
Put a pair of ‘V’ notches in the inside of the jaws – it will make it easy to clamp round things like pipe and dowels so they don’t move around & with copper pipe you don’t have to clamp so hard the pipe distorts. You can also use the notches to keep rope or cable taught when you need to stretch it for various reasons without having to tie knots in the rope.
Great video. We need your presence more on YouTube
Daaaaaaaang sir! You just keep coming up with great ideas! Cool! Thanks!
I like the idea of clamping the plywood or other pieces to edge sand. I’d normally stand there wobbling around with it between my legs/feet trying to keep it in place. Thanks for the tips!
So use a clamp to clamp things. Got it.
Thanks for these tips. I was introduced to these clamps 60 years ago in 7th grade shop. But was left on my own in putting them to use. Your tips opened my eyes to ways to use these more effectively. That last one…that will come in very handy.
Very useful, thank you for this
Great video on these wood clamps. I’ve cut grooves in the clamping surfaces with holes perpetual through the clamp to use in drilling pipes and dowels. Best use is getting your fingers out of the way.
Great video! Why does your head look like a bowling ball?
Always wondered if those were a practical tool to have. Always ended passing them up whenever I would be in HF. Well you changed my mind about them, not just having one but two in the shop. Thanks
Hand screw clamps are some of my favorites. Great tips! Scott
Great stuff. I suggest you at least sand off the finish from the handles, but for best grip, use hockey tape!
Man I would love to see a video of you making some modern end tables for man cave or den. I want to make some but need some ideas
Gonna get me a couple…. Thanks
I learned something today, thank you !!
I have those clamps and didn’t know how to use them !
Thank you Glen! This was very helpful! I started woodworking because I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, and I needed to be able to make things, and do things with my hands, it’s sort of therapy. But, my disability means that I do need as much of a "helping hand" as I can get. Someone these tricks will come in handy. I’m particularly grateful for the idea of using the clamps for edge banding and planing because I do not have space for a dog table.
Useful stuff, Glen. Thank you.
Thanks, Glen! You’ve solved many of my problems here. Now I just have to buy a couple!
I always looked at them as not cool to use, but I have a small garage shop and the usability you showed here was very beneficial!!! Thank you for your DIY style videos short, impactful and well thought out
This is EXACTLY what I need. I am a woman starting out with DIY, because I cannot afford to pay for a joiner or decorator, so I am hoping to learn as much as possible.
Always enjoy watching your videos…learn something each time! Thanks.
These are some of the best tips I have come across. Thank you.
What’s up Glen you probably don’t even remember me this is Willie Lawrence from belle glade we went to school together man I salute you keep doing your thing man great work and great projects.
Im from iran
Great ideas I don’t have any clamps like those but your video shows the advantage of having these on one’s tool arsenal, gotta go now I gotta make a trip to my home center store to buy clamps…thanks for sharing
I think the uses for a hand screw clamp are not as clamps in the traditional sense. They don’t hold things together or hold something in place on their own. Instead they function more like a third hand to hold your work when you need it or an expendable hand to hold your work when holding with your hand puts you in a sketchy situation.
I’ve looked at these things for years especially at harbor freight and thought what the heck do you do with these? Never curious enough to look it up, or ask someone but after watching your video I know what I’m picking up the next time I’m at the ole HF……thanks for the education 👍
Great job…very helpful!
Simple, yet effective. Makes DIY tasks less frustrating. Thanks, Glen. Any more quick tips in the pipeline?
These are excellent tips that are hard to find.
You can also find these clamps at Antique stores as well. If you are doing repairs on fine furniture and use these clamps you can cover the jaw faces with a piece of leather. They will grip super tight and not slip or damage the finish of the piece you are working on. Great video Glen!!
My screw clamps live right next to my drill press!
