Paul mentioned in one of his project description that he had a blog entry on the modification he made to the small light weight sash cramps he uses all the time. Does anyone know which month this blog entry was? I have had a look through most of them but cant find the entry.
I think they are the Axminster Aluminum Sash Cramps but they come with a warning about flex under load. Paul’s ones seem to have been infilled with wood and have a measuring scale on the side are these the modifications? along side the small hard board blocks glued to the load baring faces.3 January 2013 at 7:46 pm #6109
They are from Axminster, I have 6 of them I have fitted a piece of wood into 3 of them.Just not got around to doing the other three yet , to be honest I have not found any problems with flexing . I have super glued a plywood block to the jaws on all clamps.I do not know anything about the measuring scale .
They are good cheap clamps I am sure you will not be disappointed

I think this is the one you are looking for…………..http://paulsellers.com/2011/11/4473/3 January 2013 at 11:43 pm #6122
I bought a bunch of them from Harbor Freight. These don’t have the scale along the side which I didn’t think is that important. Without the wood infill like Paul suggested, the clamps do flex all which ways under pressure like when they need to be sturdy for things like planing or plowing. Therefore, immediately I began filling them in. Didn’t take that long and what a difference it makes if the fit is snug.
