I have usewd this to make bigger frames, but need it to make 5 in. frames. How to do it??
I am new at making frames, I started so I can deal with scrap wood, never got it square as I like till I broke down and bought this set, not I am planning on getting several more.
Easy and Effective!
The clamp is easy to assemble and even easier to use. It glues perfectly tight mitered corners. Well worth the money.
made clamping pictures almost too easy
simple and easy to use--made 4 frames in less than an hour-- way better than the band clamps I was using
Works better than other clamp products
The wing nut it too hard to tighten enough to get enough pressure. I replaced it with a hex nut and tighten it with a ratchet wrench that can slip over the long bolt. I've tried other clamp products and this one is the best. I bought four of them so I don't have to wait for glue set time when I'm making multiple frames.
Great tool for making picture frames etc
well constructed and easy to use.
For gluing up frames it works great. Took a little time to figure out how to set it up, but after that it was a breeze. Tip: Get the frame set in the jig. Tighten it up. get it square (corner to corner). Then release the wing nut just enough to get one side of the frome out. Glue both sides of that piece. Put it back in the jig. Then do the same thing on the opposite side of the jig. Tighten up jig. Check for being square. Wait for the glue to dry. It is that simple.
