The right angle clamp states that it has a 5" reach, but can anyone tell me how much it can span?
I need to attach a 2x4 rail (through piece) to a 5" leg (receiving piece)
I'm not sure if the clamp will spread that far.

I have the Automaxx version, and the span from the pad to the tip of the round pocket hole end is 4-5/16 inches.


Ken would be correct in the actual opening size from the pad to the tip. However, since the tip will be in the pocket hole itself it will give you the 5" reach our website states. However, with the project you are working with, it will not open enough to clamp the pieces in your project. If you have any other questions please let us know.

Kreg Foreman

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
