    First clamps I used were Collins miter clamps. I use those when I pin nail to keep the miter tight. Sometimes the pins can actually open the miter up when you shoot them.

    The second clamp was a Clam Clamp. They have pins that grab the trim and close the miter all the way through. I leave them on for about a half hour to give the glue a chance to dry.

    And that’s why I avoid miters whenever possible! They take a lot more work than people realize to get them perfect! Nice work! More details on the cam clamp you are using please!

    Nice job on the miter. That cam clamp is an interesting tool.
    Do the Collins Miter Clamps mare the wood at all?

    You’re not gonna be able to find the Collins clamps at Home Depot. They’re made by a small company out of Ohio. You can find them online though. I get mine at my lumberyard. Super handy to have. I don’t have any clam clamps, but I’ve been meaning to try some out, they’re pretty pricy though.

    Great video! I have to agree, the Collins clamps are a must, makes good meters a lot easier. I haven’t tried the Clam clamps….going to have to give them a shot.

    @CrpntrFeak very nicely done, ,
    I have seen those Collins clamps here before, from another member used them


    @Tylerwalker32

    But the Cam clamp really pulls the inside tight,
    I guess it makes small pin holes you have to fill in with a light sand.
    Great tool and work.

    Intersting how they work. The marks being on the inside not many will notice.

    Never seen the Clam Clamp but I like it. Can it be used while the trim is around the window/door?

    I’ve seen the Collins here before but the Clam Clamp is new to me too. Very effective tool; I like it!

    BE the change you want to see.

    Those miter tools have been on my, “Maybe I should get those someday” list for a long time. Maybe I should get them. 😮

    Nice looking miter, Julian. Do you build your casings on a make-up table, and then install them, always, or was that just for the video?

    I’ll build window casings, or jambs mostly, on a table, then install it whole, if the framing is really out of whack.

    Miter clamps are great I have been using them for years, but the best thing for miters are clamp nails, those things are the best and its immediately strong.

    Nice job. I also like the clamps. I am always fumbling around trying to hold everything together.
