-- The purpose of a tool is to aid in the completion of a project, to make it easier, safer and untimately better. No matter how many tools are created, some problems still remain unsolved.
Phil at Homefixated reviews the problem of correct gluing pressures in a recent blog at http://homefixated.com/
pressure/. Phil asks,"Want to start an epic battle among your woodworking friends? Ask them how they measure clamping pressure when they’re gluing up a project. You’re likely to get a variety of responses, ranging from “don’t clamp it too tight, you’ll get too much squeeze out” to the more common “clamp the living crap out of it!” to “you just have to develop a feel for it.”
In response to this problem, Phil visited with the folks at Lowell Thomas Tool. Lowell stated they have a pressure guage in the works for thier popular JackClamp system. The guage has been developed, but like all new products the testing phase has been the most arduous. "We want to make sure we have all the bugs out and are offering another quality product when we introduce our pressure guage incorporated clamp to the market."
