It kind of looks like the doweling jig shown from Home Repo, but it also looks like a clamp to position drawer fronts like Rockler sells

They look like something to do with holding two boards at 90 degrees in a corner. But then what is the other internal clamp screw/?


I do not think they have anything to do with dowels. Again, a but, what are the little half holes inline with the clamp screws.

I am pretty sure it is a drawer front clamp, similar to this Rockler one:

https://www.rockler.com/drawer-front...llation-clamps

I am still trying to visualize how it clamps to the drawer. I think the "cups" should protrude beyond the "half-notches", not behind them, so the half-notches are there to clear the screw threads. The problem with that is the screws do not seem long enough. Something isn't quite right, but I think I am on the correct path.

This would appear to be an early product from Wolfcraft, most of their products now have screwdriver style handles rather than the looped rod. I think the collective is working toward a solution.

It looks like the draw front clamp stated above. I know a few gadget freaks that have every gadget known to man. It takes them a few hours to do what a tape or ruler and a pencil can do in just a few seconds. They tell me how fast these gadgets work but watching them in action is another story.

They are cabinet drawer face installation clamps. The cabinet installer must have left them behind and would likely be very pleased if you could find him and return them to him.

They were made by a German company called "WolfCraft" that has been selling tools through distributors in the USA for about 23 years now. Here is there present catalog http://www.wolfcraft.com/fileadmin/u...ue_2016_en.pdf

Can Charley or someone else post a photo of how these clamps are actually attached and used?

I am still trying to get my head around it. It looks like the separate screw would hold the drawer face to the drawer, but it seems like it goes on the inside of the drawer, which makes no sense. Obviously I am missing something here. In addition, I don't understand the purpose of the small half-cylinder cutouts behind the round faces of the screw clamps. They show no wear.

I can tell what they are supposed to do, but not how they are supposed to do it.

I didn't find it in the catalog either. It is probably out of production.

I am hoping that someone can post a photo of how it is used. Maybe @faith michel can try it on a drawer to see how it might fit.

I have seen those "cam locks" (my term) on inexpensive, ready-to-assemble furniture. You rotate the large head, and hidden spiral guides pull the small screw head deeper into the hole until the joint is tight.

They are not related to the drawer face clamps above.

In the early 1980's I had my shop in Little Rock, Ar. Nearby was an Air Force Base. Seemed like all of the US servicemen that were stationed in Germany came back with German Shrunks. These were monstrosities of a combo Entertainment Center Book Case and collection point of stuff you had no idea of where else to put them. Anyway, I was also doing moving services out of my woodworking shop.
These services were furniture repair, estimates and assembling German Shrunks. Ajyway, that's how I know German Shrunks. And now finally to the point - Ther were almost exclusivel put together with either the cam locks you show or barrel bolts. And this has nothing to do with the drawer front jig but I'm bored

Tool agnostic,, you mention “cam locks’ in inexpensive furniture. I built furniture for over 40 years, and quality it was. There aere times that cam locks can work very beautifullyllllI. the camping action i like something you can’t get any other way.
