You are correct. It is hobbiest buyers who make a majority of
jig sales viable. Many pros don’t mess around with stretching machine
capacity in a big way – they upgrade the machine and move forward.
The time saved on profitable jobs makes this approach more feasible
for pros.

Commercially made luthier clamps are a pretty good value and
making equal ones yourself is doable but a hassle. Most shop-made
copies will be adequate but inferior to Klemmsia clamps.
