When to Use a Bar Clamp
That bar clamp isn’t going to stay in your tool box for long. It proves to be a helpful accessory often and if you are a craftsman who plans to work with wood, you undoubtedly already regard it as an important part of your cutting arsenal. Consider using a quality bar clamp when:
- You need a perfect cut. It can be difficult to cut a piece of wood – especially if it’s large and unwieldy. Forget the days of guesstimating a straight line. Enlist the help of your bar clamp and you’ll cut a straight one every time. Multipurpose clamps like GatorClamps even allow the user to cut at an angle. Try that without a clamp – we dare you!
- You need spreading action. A bar clamp often can be converted to a powerful spreading tool. It’s the spring mechanism that really gives it this ability and a well-made clamp won’t leave marks on the wood, either.
- You need to make your bar clamp longer. You will find bar clamps available in a number of sizes, and extending tools are available as well. Screw one on to your existing clamp, and you are in business.
- You need to keep your chips fresh and crunchy. Yes, bar clamps in mini form serve as ideal containment devices; call them the heavy-duty “chip clips.”
There are many uses for a bar clamp – and many places to purchase them.
