Note that I clearly stated that I used the Hargrave clamps on 8/4 lumber. They are needed to get the clamp pressure needed on thick lumber. It would take 15 Bessy's at their maximum applied force to clamp a 3' x 8/4 panel at the recommended clamp pressure for maple.

A 2' Bessy weighs only 5% less than the 2' Hargrave clamp, shown in previous post.

Learn more about clamps in a new post.
