Description

In Detail

Two age old problems associated with gluing up panels are the amount of space required when using traditional sash clamps and the tendency of the panel to distort under the weight of the clamps. With the aid of some very clever design work the Plano Panel Clamping system has managed to eliminate both of these problems. Because the press is set vertically along a wall with a guide rail to hold the clamps in position, the whole assembly takes up less space and the weight of the clamps is no longer a problem. An added convenience of the vertical mounting is that the boards can be loaded one at a time onto the adjustable lower holder and carefully positioned prior to clamping. When full, the upper free locking device is fastened and the handwheel tightened, not only applying pressure vertically, but also forcing the two sides of the clamp together to produce lateral pressure. The result is a much stronger joint with all the timber exactly centred. The maximum clamping height available is 1,250mm and maximum clamping width is 120mm. The length is limited only by the length of wall space available, each guide rail being 1 metre long and easily linked together. The number of press units required will vary depending upon the type and size of timber used. Made of anodised aluminium and galvanised steel. (Supplied singly)

Well worth it.

I purchased 2 units at an Axminster tool show some years ago, principally for building up Parana pine panels, in conjunction with my biscuit jointer. I was pleased with the results. I gave up using it for a couple of years because I moved and didn't have a garage (I tried using it flat on the floor, but the results were iffy.) I have recently started using it again, but this time using T&G planks, with very satisfactory results.
Three tips for anyone buying this are (1) number the holes in the vertical clamps if you intend to change your final board depth often (2) use off-cut strips top and bottom to protect the edges of your board from the considerable clamping pressure you can exert and (3) use a slower setting glue (e.g. Titebond Extend) to at least have a chance to make any minor adjustments before putting on the final pressure.
