    Honolulu,, Hi.

    I have been using the Collins miter clamps and they are nice. I don’t think they are as strong as the other ones I’ve used. They look like a C and have a tool to open them, not sure what they were called. What kind do you like and use?? Pics would be a big plus. These are the Collins and the corner will be Chamfered so there are no nails in there. I no have the lock miter bit and big router!

    I have some similar clamps that I picked once thinking they looked like they would work well but have never used them.

    I have a few sets of the Collins miter clamps myself…and I’d never be without them on a trim job. They are invaluable, IMO!

    I see these and think how useful they are in so many ways. Those and cam clamps.

    There are only two ways to do things; the right way and again.

    I have a set of these, very handy at times. The clam clamps look really good, but I don’t do enough trim work at this point to justify the cost.

    I have used these before and remember them to be stronger than the Collins clamps.

    I have a little set of four Collins clamps and I have really liked them for the few things I’ve used them for, but I really like the ones you posted Dirty. I’ve seen a few other styles that look like they wouldn’t hold as tightly, but these look pretty strong.

    And I thought the Collins clamps were overpriced….wow, these are ridiculous! I’m perfectly happy with the Collins clamps.

    I don’t see any reason for a miter clamps to exert a higher level of pressure. It the joint is cut properly, it doesn’t take much to keep it from moving while the glue dries. Additionally, the more pressure, the larger the dent/hole is after the clamp is removed.

    Do you buy the 12 packs for 30 bucks?? That’s what I’ve been getting and can’t find a better price.

    Looks like they are also sold under the name Robert Larson miter clamps. Look at this nonsense price they have them at on Amazon.ca here in Canada….

    https://www.amazon.ca/Robert-Larson-Company-560-3250-Miter/dp/B00005A1KB

    That’s nuts at $555 CAD! 😬

    And I thought these were pricey that I found thru LV looking for them on their site last nite.

    I think I’ll get those LV ones. They look cheap to me now. I think they are in fact the Collins clamps.

    You might even be able to use some band clamps on them Dirty. I use them on picture frames and it pulls everything tight and square.

    Something like that…seems a bit high for what they are. On the other hand, you get what you pay for and the Collins clamps are very nice.
