Bowclamp Modern technology used to realize an age-old idea: a perfect bow shaped arc. The Bowclamp's patented design - made possible only with the help of computerized, numerically-controlled cutting technology (CNC) - allows for equal clamping pressure along the entire length of the glue line... with only one clamp at each end!

Default My WIA

A little back story...

This is my second WIA. I was there last year. Had a very successful show, but most never new I was there.

As I was pulling out of town last year I saw Don Weber struggling to get his old treadle lathe onto his trailer, solo. So I ran over to give him a hand. We'd never met. He was naturally grateful. Before he could pull away I was busy stuffing a set of Bowclamps onto his trailer. He was adamant... "no, I don't want them, I won't use them..." I said "of course you'll use them... if you're a woodworker, you will..." "if not, burn 'em... I don't care..."


Fast forward to this year... I'm not in the door 2 minutes, barely found my spot...

I see Don running toward me... "I use 'em everyday!!"

"Of course you do Don... give me a hug!"

That was the beginning... and it only got better from there.

Thank you everybody.

Oh that reminds me... almost forgot. Funny story (at least for me, and that's all that counts ). Sorry for the blurry phone pic. It's all I had.



That's "The" Schwarz's vice and Rob Cosman's feet.

Gave 'em something to think about.

Not to mention "THE" toolbox got an addition.

Good times.
