Hi, I'm Ken, and I can't glue. I admit it. I can carve all day long. I can make any part, fitting, or tool I need. I can sometimes varnish and even put in purfling. But I can't glue. Oh, I can glue purfling in. I can chalk fit patches, and glue them in. I can fix an open seam. I usually have good luck gluing ribs onto blocks, that doesn't ever seem to pose a problem. I can't glue a back or a top on. I have done it; about 9 times. I made up some clamps one time, and laid them all out. Glued and clamped, and opened and glued and clamped. I got through it. Usually I do a little at a time and hold it with my hands until it sets. Really. This is a confessional. What kind of clamps are easy to use? I do everything fast, but I can't seem to assemble a carcass fast enough. I see spool clamps, and I'd want to change the ends so they touch in the channel, not the edge. I don't mind tweaking; I do that with just about everything. Out of the box, there isn't much that works just right. If I had a shop like Tony, I'd say, "Hey, Omo my boy! Wanna glue this bad boy up for me? Thanks." What do you like?

Hey folks, I just received some counterfeit Herdim style clamps from a Chinese ebayer. The fit and finish is a little rough on the plastic parts, but the threads all seem well done as none of the nuts seem to have travel issues. I'm not in a great spot financially and I know some others may also need to pinch pennies, so I thought I'd let you know. The seller has another auction up, a full set of 32 (4 yellow, 8 red, 20 blue) for an opening bid of $98, free shipping. I was lucky enough to be be only bidder when they did the last one, if y'all take turns you can probably do the same. http://m.ebay.com/itm/LUTHIER-TOOL-32-PCS-violin-top-and-back-clamps-/361458200784?nav=SEARCH Best always, Jackson
