While it is true that gluing the pieces together does the same job of holding the pieces or fastening them together with a clamp, but what happens after you are done working with the piece and you need to detach the pieces? It would not be pleasant or easy to remove the glue and even if you manage to remove them, they might leave behind some sticky and stubborn residue which mars the beauty of the wood. Hence woodworkers appreciate clamps a lot and they understand their importance.
The clamp size - Woodwork projects are not the same and therefore have different requirements. The bench clamps are made in different sizes and it is important to consider the extent of the projects you get so that you can choose a clamp size that won't disappoint with both small and larger projects.
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.
