I need to clamp this corner brace in to glue, but I don’t have anything to support the clamp and it’s moving all over the place. Is there something that can use like a jig or something?
I was going to shot a couple of brads into it with my air brad nailer, but changed my mind because I didn’t want to take any chances of it coming out the other side. I was only going with the plywood because it was cut off from the same piece.I would make the corner block out of solid wood instead of plywood and it if it doesn't show just put a brad at each end of it to hold it until the glue dries.
Thanks I do like the inner tube idea and maybe I can use it with my newly designed clamp jigs.I have it.
Same 2x4 setup.
Use a full bicycle inner tube.
Loop over the bottom of the 2x4.
Run the inner tube up the inside, across the back of the 2x4, then down the outside, and loop the end back over the 2x4 where you started.
Thanks Mike, I wish I had an air gun for staples. My uncles used to glue little blocks on all their stairs between the tread and the riser of each step to keep them from squeaking. They just used staples to hold them in place and depended on the glue to do all the work.I would use pocket holes and screw it into place after applying glue, then use a pocket hole plug - also glued, then sand the plug and move on to the next part of the project.
Good luck ~ Mike
Ok a photo makes a big difference. I can see it now. What size plywood is that?This is a different wing setup, but it gives you the idea.
This particular jig is just for bending and shaping a wet sheet of plywood prior to actually mounting it to the real wing.
It's special stuff, just under 1/8". Sometimes I use straps ($10 cam-type tie downs), but most of the time, rubber bands. To maintain light weight, it only gets the one ply layer.Ok a photo makes a big difference. I can see it now. What size plywood is that?
I have made a lot of round and oval shapes with 1/8" plywood door skins. Most of the time when I get the shape I want, I start laminating more plywood on to it and I have to get creative with the gluing. I have not used elastic, but I have wound string around to get the shape I need. I think I'm going to start looking inner tubes. :yes:
