A stepped block used to support one end of a horizontal lever which is pivoted off-center along its length, on a bolt held in a slot on the work table with the other end of the lever laid on the work, with the stepped block end of the lever on the proper step to hold the lever horizontal. Placing the long leg of the lever on the stepped block gives mechanical advantage to clamping the work in place. Tightening of the nut on the bolt places force on the step and on the work and holds the work firmly. Step block allows for adjustment to fit over and hold different thickness, since thicker material would be placed under the section of the block that has the largest cutout.
clamp pads are used on the face of various clamps to provide protection against clamp jaw marks and the accumulation of glue on the clamp face.
Straps used to hold or support pipes.
Clamp having a screw thread that permits the jaws to firmly grasp materials of various sizes. The screw thread is turned, moving the jaws of the clamp against the item being held.
C shaped metal clamp that has an adjustable threaded screw that bridges the open part of the C and clamps onto a surface.
Clamp that is specifically designed to hold members that are joined at an angle, in place.
Quantity of time required to hold two members together with clamping pressure applied to the joint between them. This duration is determined by the curing time of the adhesives used in bonding.
Clamping tools are designed for any number of lightweight and industrial uses where a sure grip is required. Clamping tools hold objects steady when being tooled or sanded. They allow pieces that have been joined with adhesives to adhere securely and they can act as quick mounting devices.
Soil excavation machinery with a bucket attachment that can be closed to hold in a load of soil and then open to dump it.
