Does anyone know of an easy way to hold the corners of a small box when using micro-pocket holes? Does Kreg make a right angle clamp for the smaller micro-pocket holes? They should consider making a small right angle clamp for micro pocket assembly.

Vince,

Check out this mini clamp---

perhaps it'll work out for you.

I use them---they keep the corners square---

they can be used inside or outside, and I get good results.

Thank you, Ken.  I checked out the Rockler.com site and I will consider buying the square and a few of their mini-clamps.  I think this will solve the problem.

Vince,

Another option

Obtain a 2nd clamp---

grind the clamp pin diameter down to fit into the smaller size pocket holes.

I have found that a 1/4 drive, 11/32 nut driver socket will slip right over the clamp mandrel. The short 1\ drive shaft will fit nicely in the micro pocket hole and clamp the piece very well. I successfully used the clamps on a 1/2" thick made project. Be sure to look for the socket with the short, straight shaft. Some sockets have a longer shaft that would require shortning of the shaft as it is too long to work.

Good luck on your projects.

Rob
