As far as edge glue-ups goes, these York clamps are the best I've seen. I've been using these for a few years now, and they are solid! and keep the boards nice and flat. They are also easy and fast to use. Anyone doing regular edge glue-ups should have some. They'll soon pay for themselves in time saved, sandpaper, and general frustration, trying to keep 6 boards flat on a table top glue-up.

In a perfect world, I'd have these York clamps and a few Bowclamps for cabinets. If only Bowclamp was available in Japan.
Cheers!

Hey Okami,
I'm not clear how the York clamps are sold. Are they priced for (2) bars (top & bottom of one location or are they sold as (4) bars -- that appears to be what they show. I guess I should have included a limk to the site.

I just went back to the site, they clearly say (4) bars for two clamps.

Hi Ron

Yes, You get what is in that picture. A set of two clamps.
If You are doing big glue-ups like table-tops, I recommend two sets (4 clamps)
They really are worth having.
Cheers!

There is a similar clamping system available from an Australian company Frontline. You can check out this video at Stu's Shed. I don't know if they ship internationally.

I don't know. They are quite heavy, I wouldn't want to pay shipping on them from another country

I'm checking the shipping from the UK however as Okami says the shipping may be a killer. They also sell just the head, tail & clamp assembly so that may be the better way to go if we can get Okami to sketch the hole dimensions & rectangular tubing sizes.

Hi Ron

Here's a few pictures, they can explain better than Me

There's a row of 14 holes, then one hole at the other end.
The rectangular tubing is 3mm thick.
Cheers!

Thanks, the place in the UK does ship to the U.S. but they haven't given a shipping cost yet.

It's probably going to be WAY more practical to buy tubing & drill it myself. Actually, maybe it would be better to make the entire clamp set?
Okami, if you would please the next time that you have your camera out snap a picture or two of the clamp bracket assembly.
Maybe a product for me to manufacturer the U.S. market?

Here's a few pictures of the clamp bracket assembly.

This is 200mm long. The inner width is about 31.5mm (to allow the bar to slip in between)

The holes that need drilling (3) from the left of the picture is centred at: 15mm, 127mm, 185mm.

Ron, If you could produce something like this, I'm sure You could sell a few, once You put the word out, do a few demonstrations. These things really work, and well!

Last night I checked the dealer that sold me my two sets (they retail at over $500 a set here)
I was shocked to find that He no longer stocks them I haven't found anywhere else yet, that stocks them...so I might be making some too
The place I bought them from is: ??????????? Web Shop >> ?????????????
Cheers!
Okami

Just found this picture over at the creek. Thought it would be cool to post here. Pretty slick.
