  • kant twist clamp article

    I've been trying to locate a construction article about the kant twist type clamps. I can't remember if it was in HSM or MW. I haven't been able to find anything using the search features available on HSM's website. Maybe it's just me, but I do wonder if this feature works for anybody?

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Blondihacks had a couple of videos on the topic. Might be worth a look. (BTW it's not just you. I haven't found the search function very useful either.)

      Here's an article on a simple version-
      https://www.mistrymaketool.com/how-t...t-twist-clamp/

      I've been tempted to make a set of drawings and have a water jet shop cut a bunch out, but haven't done it yet.
      I just need one more tool,just one!

        I recently saw plans for making them here. https://www.homemadetools.net/

        I didn't pay much attention to it because I have several of them.

          I did a set of construction pictures and drawings some years ago while I was at the high school and have sent them to half a doz on various forums but haven't heard back that anyone has actually built any.. I made the first ones about 4" then I scaled down and build a bunch of 2" ones. I have a file that can be sent via "Wetransfer", at least it worked sometime in the past. If anyone is interested I can try it again. I'll see if I can post a few pix or a link to some .
          ...lew... Hopefully here is a couple pix.

            Photos are fine, Lew. Those look great! I'd love the drawings, if you don't mind!

              I don't <know> when, or in which magazine, it was first published, but Metalworking, Book Three has such a project by a Bob Patrick, "A great Little Clamp."

              ...one of those (many) projects I intended to do, but never did.

              ...ooops, left out the word <'know'>

                Thanks, Lynn! I searched it by author, and found it. Aug-Sept 1993. I doubless have the magazine, That's only 28 years ago, looks like I tend to procrastinate a little.......

                  Kinda funny Tim? I thought you had a post way back when, the other Kant-Twist clamp thread. Gettin old. haha

                  Those clamps are nice. They are not "ALL" that though, From a welders point of view.

                  I tried, really gave them the benefit. They are difficult to get clamped up, the feet suck. I also have the welding type, better feet.

                  I dont know, they just are not my first grab while in the shop and needing a clamp. JR

                    Yeah ... the feet have to be exactly opposite each other & in doing that it's easy to shift the part that you're trying to clamp. But when lined up, they do clamp tight.
