AW Extra 2/6/14 – Vertical Panel Clamping

Vertical
Panel
Clamping

Gluing panels and
other large assemblies
vertically saves floor
space and is easier on
your back—you don’t
have to carry anything.
Make the crossbar
from 1/2-in. pipe and
attach it securely to the
wall. 3/4-in. pipe tees
slide along the pipe.
Thread the ends of
3/4-in. pipe-clamps
into the tees, as shown.
After tightening the
hanging clamps, add
additional clamps
between them on the
opposite side of the
panel.
