    Lining clamps for violin making

    And here is another batch of special clamps, it's for gluing the linings to the ribs.
    There are simply made with wooden clothespins, so that you can easily make plenty of them.
    They are shortened, and the spring is strengthened using a couple of rubber bracelets.
    Doing so, you can have a really strong little clamp.
    The strength is only limited by the fact that if I put too much rubber, the pin wings break before I can open the clamp



    Even if you do not make a violin every day, these little clamps keep very useful for any kind of delicate gluing along an edge.
    Cheers !
    Christophe

    Nice tip. How about slipping the rubber bands after clamping the edges/linings?
