I would like to know if anybody esle out there in wood world purchase this clamp I thought
it was a very good idea but!!!!!!!!!!!! my problem is( duhhh) how to get a square coner using it
I tried and tried but with three hand it work I know it can,t be that hard to use is there any instruction at there or help Thank!!!!!!1
I'd suggest ''squaring off'' the pieces to be joined---
hold the pieces in place with a suitable alternate clamping method, to ''square of the pieces''---
then proceed with the Kreg 90 degree corner clamp tool, to hold the pieces in place, while fastening with the required screws.
You could make some 90 degree corner braces .3/4 inch stock about 1-2 inches width.Place in corner and clamp the brace to get 90 degree then jig clamp it
Works like charm
I use it with the right angle clamp on each side. Seems to work fine, but as mentioned below, a jig to square the pieces sounds easier and repeatable. Took me a while to learn how to place the corner clamp, but once I got it dialed in for the appropriate dimensions of the sides, it goes on quite easily and quickly, and accuratel (when used with the right angle clamp on the oppose end of the pieces).
does anyone know how to properly set and use the kreg 90-Degree Corner Clamp item # KHC-90DCC. I have searched and searched for user guide and diagrams for this "Jig". It seems to me that not even Kreg knows how to utilize the tool, they provide no instructions nor any guidance at all. Pretty frustrating, seems to me that they would want people who purchase it to know exactly how to set it up and make the most of it. If you look at the package the clamp comes in, they, Kreg, make claims of its extraordinary value for constructing drawers, shelving etc and its not like I can not do anything with it. However, too much time is wasted figuring out how to adjust, set and use the "contraption.
I have two of them, one is still in the original package. When I purchased them, the clamps, I was so excited and happy. I could not wait to get to my shop and build shelves and bookcases. At this point I would pay someone to take them off my hands.
Admittedly, I am not a rocket scientist but...........
well, they do make interesting paper weights though very expensive
Agreed, these things are not just a pick-up-and-use tool!
But like Armbar mentioned, once you get it 'kialed-in', you'll love it.
I live by the axiom of cut it square, it'll assemble square!
That and always use a "story stick" at every opportunity - especially during assembly.
I just completed a 4' x 6' bookcase yesterday, and the diagonal, square checking measurements ended up within 1/16th of each other. :)
