A Woodworkers Dream Tool! (Video)

Categories: DIY

Woodpeckers was established in September of 1988. Their focus has always been woodworking tools.

Up until 2004 they focused on demonstrating tools at woodworking shows throughout the U.S. Since 1993 they've been manufacturing router tables and router mounting plates. Starting with little more than a few routers they've grown into a full fledge manufacturer of router lifts, router fences, measuring & layout tools and many useful clamping accessories.

They do their own machining, engraving, assembly and packing. Taking pride in the fact that the tools are truly made in the U.S.A.

You can never have enough clamps. But then again, having just the right clamp for the job can make a huge difference. The new Woodpecker 4” Box Clamp might just be the perfect clamp for assembling your cabinets, drawers and virtually any other box made from 1/4” to 1” thick material even with two pieces of different thickness (up to 1/4” difference).

Its unique space-saving design actually gives you more surface area then most similar corner clamps while not having any clumsy, protruding handles or screws. The Box Clamp was designed to take up the least amount of space while offering more, dead-true clamping surface then other comparable clamps. It can be used as part of a clamping fixture for assembly of multiple, identical assemblies or un- fixtured for large cumbersome projects.

Most mass produced clamps are stamped, molded or die-cast distant cousins from the precise proto-types they started out as. Not here. We carefully machine each and every clamp from a solid billet of stress-relieved aluminum to ensure dead-square accuracy in each and every direction so every clamp is as perfect as the last one.

You'll find the Woodpecker Box Clamp to be at least as precise as your high-end layout square and robust enough to deliver a lifetime of consistent reliable service.

The secret to its compact functionality is it's tapered wedge design, (only one moving part), that simultaneously pushes the mating materials down and in with less than two turns of the screw while applying an enormous amount of clamping force.
