Now that is a real wood compresser. The treaded rod gives so much more pressure than bar clamps with little effort. My favorite clamps are home made two direction clamps.

I cannot tell from the picture, how do you adjust the back side? It looks like it is bolted through the bar in picture #4.

I have open holes every 10 cm and the base of the back side have 2 holes. So I bolt the base with two screw to have more stability at the pressure.

I replaced the wooden handles with iron. The pressure we can exert depends only on our physical strength.

The reason your pictures are sideways is that the site doesn’t know how to handle pictures taken in portrait mode. Turn your phone or camera to take a landscape oriented picture.
