AW Extra 2/6/14 - Vertical Panel Clamping


Vertical Panel Clamping

Gluing panels and other large assemblies vertically saves floor space and is easier on your back—you don’t have to carry anything. Make the crossbar from 1/2-in. pipe and attach it securely to the wall. 3/4-in. pipe tees slide along the pipe. Thread the ends of 3/4-in. pipe-clamps into the tees, as shown. After tightening the hanging clamps, add additional clamps between them on the opposite side of the panel.
