    Luthier clamps - E clamp

    Still in the luthier clamps series, the "E" clamp, which is actually a special clamp used to press something on an edge .



    Here it is in use, gluing a bone piece on a point of a bluegrass mandolin :
    Cheers !

    Is the tube hollow or solid Christophe? Looks like a nice piece of clampmanship either way.

    About 200mm long?

    Trying to sense the scale, not being a bluegrass mandolinist (?) an' all

    Hi Doc, thanks for the comment,
    yes I'm sorry, I missed to give some dimensional info:
    - it's solid square section steel, 10mmx10mm
    - dimensions are 90mm x 60 mm
    - screws are 6mm diameter.
    Christophe
    Cheers !

    Great idea and well-executed. Thanks for sharing Christophe. Knobs would be nice additions IMHO.
