Looking for cool clamping solutions for your shop? The new Automaxx clamps from Kreg are worth a look. They provide excellent clamping power and, amazingly, they auto adjust to varying thicknesses of stock. No fussing with the clamp capacity; just squeeze and go.
Kreg makes their Automaxx clamps in a variety of configurations. Whether you’re assembling screw pockets, or looking for an end vise to add to your workbench, there’s an Automaxx clamp that can help you out. While you won’t have to adjust for varying thicknesses, there is a micro adjust that allows you to increase or decrease the pressure the clamps are applying.
It’s cliche but true, you can never have too many clamps. Good clamps are like having a good shop assistant, providing an extra pair of hands when you need them. As you shop for a wood clamp to add to your shop, be sure the clamps you buy are easy to use, and provide versatility.
