      A:  poorly

      by|Dec 18, 2018

        Q:Any problems clamping 1.5x1.5” for pocket holes

        Answer This Question

        A:  I don't think it will work

        by|Dec 3, 2018

        A:  Yes. This is not the tool for pocket hole work. Too many protruding parts, with limeted room for drilling.

        by|May 5, 2023

          A:  poorly

          by|Dec 18, 2018

            A:  you should not have a problem......but use the pocket fixture jig..made by Kreg....made for that... thats my opinion..

            by|Dec 26, 2018

            A:  wouldn't recommend it. Get the Kreg clamps

              Q:Can you use this to hold joists? I'm making garage shelving and last week when I did it myself I had a hard time holding the joist and then drilling them into place. I plan on using a Kreg for pocket holes I just want something to hold the joists while I screw them in.

              A:  I don't believe so. This is a very small clamp.

              by|May 5, 2023

                A:  I don't see a problem with it so long as you aren't expecting the clamp to hold the joist up in the air, it's much more light duty that than but it'll hold it together.

                by|May 5, 2023

                A:  I doubt they are big enough to hold the joist. Kreg has a right angle clamp that should work well. They are designed with pocket hole construction as well.

                by|May 5, 2023

                A:  Depends on the size. It can open wide enough for a 2x4 truss, but not big enough for a 2x6 floor joist.

                by|Apr 30, 2019

                A:  Yes

                  Q:Will it work on fish tank (150 gal)

                  Answer This Question

                  A:  It'll clamp on anything that is less than 3". If the surface may scratch, may want to add some electrical tape on clamps as they are metal. The red side is smooth but the black side has a bit of a texture so if you are clamping down hard, it may have a little damage. The texture isn't hard but it is there.

                  by|May 5, 2023

                    A:  no it not big enough

                    by|May 5, 2023

                    A:  Yes, as long as it has a right angle and there is a flat surface. If there is a border around the glass, you may have an issue. However, I do not think you should have a problem.

                    by|May 5, 2023

                      A:  It seems like it would. Plastic and aluminum

                      by|May 5, 2023

                      A:  I would think so

                        works good enough for me
                        my projects are simple enough with butt jointing mostly 2 x 4 material. I am happy this will make my life a bit easier and it wasn’t overly expensive. All metal construction. For me, it should be a useful gadget.

                            I bought a two of these corner clamps for frames that I was making. These made the process so much easier and would highly recommend. They are high quality and definitely worth the price.

                            For small jobs, especially with 1" or thinner stock, this is perfect. I built a small learning tower for my daughter using this and it made the joints so much better than they would have been without it. I only wish it was made in the US but hey, it worked.

                              Works ok, not for perfect corners.
