For this years 2X4 Challenge I made a pair of RH,and LH wooden C-Clamps out of an 8' long 2X4.

The first picture is the inspiration I found on the internet, and then just went from that for my own version. I bought the 1" 8 tpi. lead screw all thread from McMaster Carr along with the matching nuts.

The pictures pretty much explain the build.

Nice job Herb. Look like they would get the job done. This is a good solution for deep reach clamps, I know I can't afford the store bought ones.

Thanks, Herb. The other day I really needed a couple of deep reach clamps. I am going to make two of these now so I will have them next time.

CORRECTION, You guys probable all ready figured it out, but should have read 1/2" X 8 tpi lead screw, not 1" 8 tpi.

You are correct in that when you need them or could use them, it is too late to make them. The glue is wet and you need a little extra reach to get to the back side to apply some pressure. It isn't too often, but would sure help at times. The nice part is you can customize them the way you want,they are such a simple principal.

Glad everyone liked the post,
Herb
