A person once sold off all the articles of a workshop by advertising each article or tool separately. At the end of the first day, the person received a barrage of requests for the clamps. This goes to show how important the clamps are for woodworking and that these two go hand in hand and clamps are indispensable when it comes to woodworking. It is just that sometimes we fail to understand or realize the importance of these humble woodworking tools.
Clamps provide a lot of benefits over human helpers and their usefulness cannot be stressed enough. It is obvious that these clamps can offer more compressive force than humans and there is no hassle of the wooden pieces jiggling when you use clamps because these would hold the pieces very firmly.
Pipe clamps are a special type of clamps that are composed of different segments to allow usage flexibility. A basic pipe clamp involves two different clamp sections. One section is the tightening clamp, while the other is static. They feature an open loop on one side and a clamping brace on the other. These two sections connect with a length of pipe and the tightening section of the clamp can move to properly connect pieces of wood. The fact that the pipe can be alternated for shorter or longer sections to connect different or nonstandard pieces of wood provides for the versatility and benefit of using pipe clamps.
