Pipe Clamps, Bar Clamps, Parallel Face Clamps. The CSS 24 comes in two models to handle the style of clamps you’re using. The pipe clamp model nests 3/4″ or smaller pipe clamps. The bar clamp version works with a range of clamps including bars up to 1/4″ in the smaller slot and 3/8″ in the wider slots. Both styles use four pieces that make up a 24″ square with 10 positions for clamps on each side of the fixture.
Fast Assembly and a Variety of Sizes. The four sides of the CSS 24 are quickly assembled using notches in each bar that forms a sturdy “egg crate” joint. Notches are spaced at 4¾” intervals allowing a wide variety of fixture sizes to accommodate your glue up size. For longer panel glue-ups simply use a second, or even third, CSS 24 to handle your needs. It couldn’t be easier!
Even More Reasons to Like the CSS 24. If you’ve used pipe clamps (and who hasn’t?) you know that the clamp head must be positioned near the edge of your bench or table to allow the handle to fully turn. You’ll love the way the CSS 24 elevates the clamps so the crank handle turns without impedance.
The top edge of the fixture is slightly above the plane of the clamp pipe or bar. This feature lets the wood parts rest on this flat edge to assist in leveling the boards. It also prevents glue squeeze-out from reacting with uncoated steel that blackens wood. The fixture is made of heavy duty, 3/32″ thick steel that’s 3″ wide. You’ll especially appreciate the thick powder coat paint finish that dried glue barely sticks to. When it does you can easily flick it right off.
You’ll find Woodpeckers CSS 24 the best glue up buddy a woodworker can have. Put them to work in your shop and take the stress out of glue-up time.
Ordering Options. The Clamping Support System can be ordered individually in either pipe clamp or bar clamp style. You may also order both styles as a set, or more than one of each style and save money on the second unit.
