Pipe clamps are a special type of clamps that are composed of different segments to allow usage flexibility. A basic pipe clamp involves two different clamp sections. One section is the tightening clamp, while the other is static. They feature an open loop on one side and a clamping brace on the other. These two sections connect with a length of pipe and the tightening section of the clamp can move to properly connect pieces of wood. The fact that the pipe can be alternated for shorter or longer sections to connect different or nonstandard pieces of wood provides for the versatility and benefit of using pipe clamps.
At times we tend to take things for granted, even the things without which we cannot live. It is only when these things are absent then only we realize their importance. Similarly for woodworkers, clamps play a very important role, and without these clamps it would be almost impossible to create any type of wood item.
Once the wood is clamped into place, spread wood glue along the seal where the wood will need to connect at a joint. Spread the glue with your finger or a piece of card stock to ensure there is an even distribution and the glue won't cause warping while it cures. Follow the instructions for the glue about curing time, and then you can release the pipe clamps. If using more than one clamp, it is best to incrementally loosen pressure on each clamp as opposed to removing them one by one. If the curing process went smoothly and pressure was distributed correctly, the wood should be firmly connected.
Clamps provide a lot of benefits over human helpers and their usefulness cannot be stressed enough. It is obvious that these clamps can offer more compressive force than humans and there is no hassle of the wooden pieces jiggling when you use clamps because these would hold the pieces very firmly.
To use a pipe clamp, it is important to use proper measurements. First, take a measurement of the wood pieces that are to be glued together. Then, either find a pipe that is already the right size or cut a section of pipe to match this measurement, with about an extra foot. Metal or PVC pipe can be used because both are durable, you just need to ensure that one end of the pipe is threaded. Attach the static clamp to the non-threaded side and secure it in place, then attached the tightening clamp to the threaded end of the pipe. Size up the wood and make sure it is connected in the way you need to it to co me out in the end, and then slowly tighten the clamp down the threaded section until it is held together firmly. If you are working with multiple pipe clamps, it can be easier to tighten one side a little and then the other side a little more, incrementally increasing the hold on the wood until there is balanced pressure.
