often times when you are first introduced
to cam clamps you look at them and think whoa are they a little bit primitive a
bit old-fashioned no they’re not they’re very practical now
very practical for things like musical instruments and lightweight boxes where
you can’t you don’t really want heavy big clunky clamps on them these look clunky but they apply just the right pressure on the cam you
can put as much pressure or as little as you want
so for violin makers or well might be a little bit of a stretch for violin
makers but certainly for guitar making things like that
these are wonderful clamps here’s how they are used you put these on here you
squeeze this sliding shoe here and just apply the pressure and the difference is
when you apply the pressure with these they’re so nice because they’re don’t
apply any twisting talk to the bar and then they just apply direct pressure is
very direct these are very practical clamps and I’m going to show you how we
make them because they’re very simple to make you
