In the process of making some "long Reach Clamps" {Wooden Boat No.240} I noticed a characteristic that they had.

That inspired me to put together a new type of clamp that, among other things, could be used in Clinker boat construction.

I call it a "Hammer Clamp".

Or, if you will, a "Slam it together Clamp".

They are simple and therefore inexpensive.

I think I could make them for about Ten Dollars apiece in 100 lot quantities.{Vs 60 Dollars for the Wooden Boat Clamp}

I have reason to believe no one ever built anything like it before.

See the picture below and note that the moveable jaw is longer than the fixed one for hammering it open.

I would be willing to loan them to someone doing Clinker construction to see how useful they would be

Return to Wooden Boat Projects...

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
