Tips & Tricks: Multi-Purpose Clamping

This article is from Issue 103 of Woodcraft Magazine.

I find that quick-grip clamps have lots of other uses besides holding workpieces together. The strong, deep jaws and long bar on such a clamp makes it a great levered wrench of a sort for loosening everything from jar lids to blanks stuck on the lathe. These clamps are just as useful in the same fashion around the home and garage for wrenching plumbing fittings, oil filters, and many other stubborn parts of different sizes and shapes. To top it all off, I recently discovered that clamping one to an exposed wall stud makes a great paper towel holder!
