Clamping Segmented Rings

 

This is a tip devised by my friend Lino, who has used this device for many years. It solves the problem of putting bar clamps close together for glue-ups.

Step 1: Remove the handles from bar clamps by grinding off the peened area with an angle grinder.

Step 2: Fabricate an adapter for a ratchet wrench.

Lino’s adapter was made by drilling two holes in a piece of steel, filing out the material between the holes, and then welding this on to a socket. It is a bit of work, but you only have to do it once.
