Glue manufacturers have recommended clamping pressures for panel glue-ups which ensure the strongest and longest lasting glue joint. To date, only large woodworking businesses & furniture manufacturers could afford to invest in industrial clamping machines which ensure that proper board glue-up pressures were achieved. Now, with the new Lake Erie Toolworks ClampGAUGE System, all woodworkers can benefit from stronger and longer lasting panel and tabletop glue-ups.
This tool works as a flexible clamping caul,engineered so that when it bottoms out on panel glue-ups, the proper clamping pressure is achieved. It’s rare when a totally new type of woodworking tool comes along and the ClampGAUGE System certainly hits this mark.
- This patent pending Made in the USA tool is precision CNC machined of 6061-T6 aluminum barstock, hard coat anodized for durability, laser etched and comes with a lifetime warranty
- ClampGAUGEs come in three different sizes for the most effective board clamping possible and they work in pairs, one on each side of the boards to be glued up and are inserted between the clamp jaws and the wood. Each kit also includes a chart which tells the user which ClampGAUGE size combinations to use and where along the board to space them.
- As you tighten the clamp, the ClampGAUGE flattens out and as soon as the middle of the tool bottoms out on the wood, you have achieved the proper clamping pressure to ensure the best glue joint possible. This tool also self adjusts to accommodate all wood species ranging from softwoods to hardwoods
Using this tool couldn’t be easier and they truly ‘Take the Guesswork Out of Glue-ups’.
