A simple clamp set which can be located in holes either in a bench top or in separate timber beams to provide a means of assembling multi-board panels. A second timber bar can be positioned on the opposite pins of the clamping blocks to stiffen up the whole assembly. The clamps are usually used in pairs for shorter timber lengths and three, or even more, when clamping longer lengths. The removable handle keeps the work area clear once the clamps have been tightened.

Functional but wont be buying another oneThis perfectly functional product was let down by the handle. When it was described as removable I assumed the tommy bar slid out but unfortunately the bar is fixed to the ferrule in the mid way as shown and the ferrule comes off the screw thread. This causes the tommy bar to foul on the bench unless you make the bottom board deep enough to clear and makes it unusable bench mounted except not the edges. Also pulling off and realigning the ferrule every 1/4 turn was very fiddly as the fit is tight; I had to file the thread end initially just so the handle would even fit. I was hoping to make a set of these clamps but these just wont do.
