If you want to attempt to make your own clamps a set of three of these will handle most of your edge and face gluing needs. They are unique in that they apply pressure in two directions by tightening one screw. The more pressure you apply to the glued surface the more pressure is applied to keep everything from slipping. I can’t remember where I found it but it is clearly from a late 80’s “Wood” magazine. Once three are applied and tightened you can add all the clamps you need depending on the size of your work without fear of misaligning the glue-up.
