Mike Dils of Sun Lakes, Arizona, found himself in a fight for his life, and his family was given a dire prognosis. Paralyzed with a rare disorder known as Locked-In Syndrome, he was unable to move—but fully conscious. Eventually using woodworking as part of his recovery therapy, Mike's will to live has allowed him to enjoy life, family and his hobby once again.
Time consuming but adds precision!
These clamps assist in cabinet installation by allowing precise alignment of the frames. You can construct a run before placing or hanging it without any appreciable error. The pilot hole for drilling is essentially useless in my opinion. I chose to place the clamps where I can access the frame directly so I can drill holes near the hinges that will essentially be hidden after installation. Yes, experienced craftsmen can do it without these clamps but the clamps are insurance against errors when used properly.
