Default Rockler pocket hole joinery clamp

Hi

Does anyone have one of these, please?
http://images.rockler.com/rockler/im...518-05-200.jpg

I'm after making one, as shipping one over here would be prohibitively expensive and I've no-one coming this way from the States for a while. It struck me that there is nothing complicated about it, so long as I get the proportions right. The angle of the locating pin I can work out from my PH jig.

I'm looking for a scan of one, with a couple of dimensions. Any volunteers. please?

Cheers

Peter

I don't have that one but I use the one below that works the same if not better and easy to make your own.. the one I have is a 12" clamp type..and will clamp up to 6" boards.

Peter I don't have that one but I have something similar. Let me know if these pictures don't give you enough info about the dimensions and I will take some measurements for you.

I have a couple of those.
gonna have to do this for ya in Imperial Peter.. sorry bout that..

Length: (not counting knob and dowel insert) 7 1/2"
Width: 1"
Dowel size: 3/8"
Apex of rise: 4 1/2"
Height: measured at apex of rise=1 1/4"
Length of acme screw: 4"
size of contact point: 1x 7/16"
Kind of hard to tell by pix, but the dowel is actually an insert, screwed into the clamp body. The angle of the dowel is determined by the angle on the end of the clamp.
Rockler says that stock capacity is 3"s. I can pretty much vouch for that,,, limited capacity makes it good for frame/cabinet work and the like..
Rockler's version has a ratcheting handle, very handy for tight spots...
Rockler actually recommends that you drill "additonal holes for clamping purposes only"

these things are fairly handy, easy to use and great for tight spots, but as mentioned earlier, the vise-grip style IMHO is a far better clamp.

HTH..

hi Deb

That's an interesting design. I can see various uses for that. Who makes those?

Cheers

Peter

Hi Bill

Thanks for that. I think I can knock one up. Imperial is no problem. I grew up with it. I work in both.

Bob's one is giving me ideas, too.

Cheers

Peter

Peter,
I don't know if you are aware or not but the Kreg tools are available in Germany.
Which should mean lower shipping costs (I maybe going down to Rovinj in September).

Hi Titus

The clamp aside, if you are coming to Rovinj, I'd love to meet up. Rovinj is on my patch. I've even an appointment there the first week in September already.

Tschuss!

Peter it's made by Craftex. I got it from Busy Bee Tools.

Both clamps say for 7/8" stock but it should be for up to 7/8" stock. I have used them on smaller stock.
