My Surround-Clamp--What it Did

I recently designed an entirely new clamp which I called the Surround-Clamp, because I could never find clamps that would hold many odd shapes and sizes for gluing in two directions at once. I called my clamp that because it SURROUNDED the project.

When I presented this idea, I got no response. Is there no one out there who has had problems gluing in two directions at once? I’m enclosing a set of pictures which show projects I’ve done with this clamp. If you are interested, I’ll send you the plans for the clamp, the designs or I have several copies of the tool which I’ll send you at my cost since I made several up thinking others would want to have them. Thanks.

Pretty cool. I would like to have a copy of your plans. I would need a much smaller one for most of what I do, but I could scale it down no doubt. Nice work!
