Clamps apply even, non-marring pressure

Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced two new sizes of its Bandy Clamp work accessory. Large Bandy Clamps feature a jaw opening that will fit the edge of standard 2x lumber (2x4s, 2x6s, etc.), which makes them useful for edging thick tabletops, countertops and other projects involving thick stock, the company says. Small Bandy Clamps fit where others can’t, adding convenience to small-scale assembly projects involving thin or delicate stock, such as in luthier work, it adds. Each clamp features a band made of tear-resistant rubber that has three extra-strength splines molded into it. Large, anti-slip clamp pads on pivoting jaws accommodate clamping at different angles with full pad contact. Neither the clamp pads nor the rubber band will mar the workpiece, it says. Applied with one-handed clamping, pressure is created by squeezing the clamp open and pushing the built-in flexible rubber band against the profile or piece being clamped until the desired resistance is achieved.
