Ideas for DIY cross and edge clamps

Recommended Posts

The cross clamps are easy. I've made some with threaded brass rod, Delrin blocks, and wing nuts. I made up one double rod clamp like the ones you pictured, and four other single rod clamps of various configurations to cross clamp from both the front and back. Other than a saw and files, the only other tool needed is a tap to fit the bolts on the block in the center.

The edge/crack closing clamp is a bit harder. With good metal machining skills, and a milling machine, you could do it, but probably a tough go with hand tools,
