A third hand is invaluable. This clamping jig makes what can often be an awkward job almost effortless. The Assembly Guides are 150mm x 150mm x 25mm, suitable for large work such as cupboard and cabinet assembly as well as smaller projects like drawers and picture frames. Made from 2mm thick stainless steel, Assembly Guides will not corrode, bend or deform. The L-shaped profile is strong, yet thin enough to allow quick and easy fastening with spring clamps. For greater holding power, use Quick-clamps or G-clamps. Square Assembly Guides work with most joinery techniques, from simple nailing or glue alone to hand cut dovetails. The guides have several benefits. You can use them on both internal and external angles. Attached to a work surface, temporarily or permanently, they become a simple assembly jig. They are perfect to use with pocket-hole joinery until all the screws are home. Use them as holders/braces for auxiliary fences, or as part of a custom designed jig. Supplied as a pack of two.

Yes, definitely one of the handiest things I ever boughtIn the product description the people at Axminster claims these squares will be one of the handiest things I'd ever have bought. I can now confirm this is no lie. I've had stupid mistakes happen because of the lack of this "third hand". I'm quite confident these guides will help me avoid all of those from now on. Build quality seems more than good enough. Nothing worrisome.
