The whole purpose of using clamps is to get the air bubbles out of the glue. This is what causes the tight bond. To test your glue joints, grip the work piece in your hand and try to snap them firmly to see if they come loose. If so, it is a bad glue joint.

I agree with you never have enough clamps. There are moments when the extra are needed in the middle of a job. Don’t forget art brushes to apply the glue. This is more useful in applying equal applications.
