DIY Frequently Asked Questions / Handscrew Clamp')">
Also called a cabinetmaker’s clamp, it consists of two hardwood clamping jaws adjusted to the work by two opposing steel screw spindles assembled into the jaws.
The jaws adjust to a variety of angles and come in a wide range of sizes up to 10”.
They are used for clamping wood, metal, plastic and fabrics.
Handscrew adaptors can be used to convert handscrews into miter clamps.
Also available are handscrew kits so woodworkers can make their own jaws.
