Tips: Clamping segmented rings

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.
