if you are using metal clamps, like steel bar or pipe clamps,
it is a good practice to put masking tape on the metal parts
that touch the glue areas – this prevents ugly black marks
on your wood joints that is difficult to remove.
it is not rust, it is a chemical reaction between the metal and glue into the wood.
