To use a pipe clamp, it is important to use proper measurements. First, take a measurement of the wood pieces that are to be glued together. Then, either find a pipe that is already the right size or cut a section of pipe to match this measurement, with about an extra foot. Metal or PVC pipe can be used because both are durable, you just need to ensure that one end of the pipe is threaded. Attach the static clamp to the non-threaded side and secure it in place, then attached the tightening clamp to the threaded end of the pipe. Size up the wood and make sure it is connected in the way you need to it to co me out in the end, and then slowly tighten the clamp down the threaded section until it is held together firmly. If you are working with multiple pipe clamps, it can be easier to tighten one side a little and then the other side a little more, incrementally increasing the hold on the wood until there is balanced pressure.
A wise woodworker will always pick up extra clamps because these would always come in handy. They are available in various sizes and depending on your project or your needs you need to purchase the right size. It is amazing that something so useful is sold at inexpensive prices, so you should stock up on these if you are into woodworking.
