Pipe Clamp StandsComments (0)
This article is from Issue 57 of Woodcraft Magazine.
For some time, I struggled with gluing up projects with my vintage 3⁄4" pipe clamps. Their narrow footing often caused them to tip when loading boards onto them. During a glue-up one day, I realized that the answer was right in front of me on the wall, holding my shop brooms. These metal spring clips–designed for storing housekeeping equipment–can be screwed to stands made of shop scrap. As an added benefit, the setup raises the clamps enough to facilitate easier turning of the clamp handles.
