Default Clamping Techniques

Just ran across this. Looks like it would be a great timesaver for some of the things I do. However, the price of those clamps precludes buying any. So for now at least I'm pretty much sticking with my tried and true method of holding my piece to be routed in place with nails. Ah well.

However, it does give me thoughts of a new use for cam clamps. Will have to think on that, but may be able to come up with something out of just scrap wood. I made some nice cam clamps out of plywood, no reason I can't make some for a different use.
