Whether for bonding parts or to immobilize them on a bench for sanding, planing or any other operation necessary to immobilize them, it is necessary to use different clamping means to work correctly and safely. The vise and the clamps are the main clamping tools.
Use of vices
1. The bench press is used to immobilize different types of wooden parts. Its wide jaw ensures pressure along the entire length of this board.
2. Once the room is tight, it is good to check that it is locked. It is possible to complete the tightening.
3. Clamping a tube in a mechanic's vice. Care should be taken not to overtighten, at the risk of flattening the pipe.
4. Grips guarantee both the tightness of a piece and the protection of it. Assembly of protective jaws in drilling vise.
5. There are different types of mordache depending on the material of the parts to be clamped. These are screwed from the outside on the jaws of this drilling vise.
6. The jaws here allow to clamp a joist in a drilling medium, without risk of damaging the wood.
Use of a workbench
1. The wedges of the jaws of this workbench are removable and adjustable according to the size of the parts to be clamped.
2. Position the shims face to face for a perfectly distributed tightening.
3. The jaws of the workbench are moved forward and the workpieces locked by rotating the cranks. Turn both cranks at the same speed so that the jaws are parallel.
4. The workbench is used to immobilize and block long pieces such as this plank.
Use of clamps
1. Bench clamping a plank with a pump clamp for sanding the workpiece. The large opening of this clamp makes it possible to block the workpiece on the workbench tray.
2. Perfectly immobilized on the bench, this piece of wood can be sanded in the best conditions.
3. Locked with clamps, this batten serves as a very effective sawing guide for cutting a pallet.
4. Cleat blocked by clamps allowed very precise guidance of the circular saw.
5. To allow accurate sawing, a cutting box must be secured to the workbench with a clamp.
6. The cutting box (used here for miter sawing), locked on the workbench with a powerful pump clamp, will not move due to the back-and-forth of the saw.
7. A clamp is used to block a cleat to be cut at the end of bench.
8. The assembly of this old chair must be disassembled, then glued before being re-upholstered then tightened.
9. A large clamp is required to secure this element of the base of an old chair. A screw clamp with a large opening is used here.
Use of collets
1. A precise tracing of the gluing necessary for this assembly makes it possible to distribute the glue correctly.
2. Powerful clamps allow effective clamping during bonding of this assembly.
