Think that hand screw clamps are a one-trick pony and not really useful in a modern shop? Think again. Here's a novel and impressive application when you have a need to clamp up an irregular shape, such as a cracked stool top. Since they're made of wood, you can drill them and screw stuff to them. Mount a pair of hanger screws in the ends of the clamp and drill two holes in the surface you need to clamp. Then, use the clamp to squeeze the two pieces together. Try THAT with your fancy fast-action metal clamp. When the glue sets, plug the holes in the piece if you desire.
