Extend A Clamp

By: Erich Lage
Going the extra distance with the clamps you have is an option that all wood shops should embrace.

W232 006f03 A modest budget for my shop tools always challenges me to come up with creative ways to stretch my tool purchases. In this case, stretching worked out very well — literally. The large quick clamps (with detachable heads) that I recently added to the shop can easily be extended to almost twice their length. By removing the sliding heads, you can join the two clamps with a standard 3" butt hinge. W232 006f04 The pins at the ends of the clamps fit into the outer screw holes of the hinge. A nut and bolt through the center hole of the hinge ties the two clamps together.
