Make your own clamps


Recommended Posts

I've also discovered this book, which has clear instructions on making many types of clamps including the Jorgensen type. Lots of other useful stuff in the book as well.

I bought a very good used copy for 1p, plus postage of course!

Interesting.

The problem with making your own Jorgensen screw clamps is that you need to be able to cut left handed thread for both the screw and the nut inside.

I have a number of the threaded bars with both left and right handed threads, but never bothered to invest in a matching tap for the nuts. Besides, the ones I have are way too big for modeling.
