Dick Steinbach’s MHM Strip Clamps







David Van Burgel’s Planing Clamps


Here is a pic of a planing clamp I am trying.  It is an "edge clamp" used for gluing veneer or laminates.  I elevate my planing forms on a couple of 2 by's and this allows the edge clamp to be used.  They are fairly inexpensive and easily attached.


Ron Larsen’s Planing Clamp


I needed a clamp to plane 6' strips for a one piece spinning rod.  I bent up a "U" shaped bracket, drilled two holes in the legs slightly larger than the pins on my form & tapped a 1/4-20 hole in the top.  I turned the slot off of a plastic screw, screwed it in the bracket & screwed on a knurled knob with a set screw to lock it in place. 

I holds quite well, even when I'm using a scraper.
