Hello woodworkers,
Just finished my first wooden clamps, I used beechwood for the jaws and the handles, it holds very well but time will tell how long it will stand as I have tried to make some modifications and see how it will perform.

Here is a link for more details:

That’s pretty cool…

I was mainly wondering how you cut the threads. Very interesting, Looks a lot easier than other systems I’ve seen…

Never have enough clamps, good project…

That look great, you did a wonderful job on them. Yes the question, did you make the threads or are they purchased?

Nice work.

How are the ends held in place?

Can you twirl both screws at once or is one left threaded?

Lathe cut or threading dies. Very nice either way.

I didn’t understand how this could work with a singular thread, until I did.

I really had to pay attention to the fact that 1 of the 4 holes don’t go through and only 2 are threaded.

Cool project TWC... must agree that the Beall threader (with a router/trimmer combo) does a superb job.

Personally, I would prefer a chunkier handle though… should not be an issue, however, would add another processing step(s).

Like your dowel making method… was always skeptical in using that concept to get a good circular dowel… must persevere seeing as how it has worked for you.

Great job

I really like this style of clamp, excellent for holding small pieces as well.
