Trap Clamps

Postby MikeDaum » Mon Mar 23, 2009 7:30 pm

Even after covering the included poplar trap clamps with 120 grit sandpaper, I found some slippage during use, specifically when crosscutting 5" wide boards. My solution was to glue 1/16" cork to the trap clamp faces. When tightened to the workpiece, it holds amazingly tight, probably due to the compression factor of the cork.

If it works, great! Sandpaper works here, but I like your idea.
