"Hi Jim,  I like the clamp table as it is definitely a solution to the lumber that wants to be contrary in a glue up.  The combination of the downward pressure and the inward pressure will cure the problem of boards that refuse to lie flat…"

Glue and Clamping Odd Shaped Objects

Here is a tip for those of you that have experienced the problem with clamping up an item that is hard or impossible to use clamps on, use black electrician's tape.  Wrap the tape and stretch it tight as you wrap.  Because it is flexible it will easily conform to many odd shapes with out difficulty. The tape has a memory and will attempt to return back to is original state it will pull and hold objects tightly.  Most glue will not stick to the tape so clean up is not necessary.See More

I saw this tool in operation and after all the years that I have been exposed to the table saw dangers this product impressed me the most.  I think it would be of benifit for all of us to watch this in operation and it is reasonable in price as well.  Much better than any push stick or…

Jay, Thanks for the wonderful comment.  It was a little tedious at times.  But I think that is what makes a project turn out to what a person wants.  Have a good day.  George

Hi Jay, I hope your getting better I sure do miss reading your replies to other peoples posts. I'm going to be launching a web site soon, gonna try to sell some pens on the internet. I'm working on getting an inventory built up. I have about 35 done so far and all my freinds and family think I could sell them online. I have sold a few of them all ready to people I know. The mountain house is keeping pretty busy also. It is a shame there is a couple thousand miles between us, I would think it would be great to sit down and have a beer or two.

Your freind on the east coast, Ray
