=== Corner Clamps for Boxmaking ===
This smart and simple jig allows you to have perfect 90-degree angles when making boxes. What's even better, it makes the process hassle-free and saves time!
The set includes four jigs, so you will be able to clamp all four of the corners simultaneously. Or work on several different projects.
Metal screw provides enough tension so that the clamp wouldn't slip and will hold the corner properly while the glue dries.
An opening at the tip of the corner allows you to check if pieces of cardboard are connected perfectly.
To apply even more pressure, the movable part has a special thumb-holder. And rails will guarantee that the angle is always perfectly straight!
The height of the wall is 15 mm. The sides are about 55 mm long.
This corner clamp is based on the original design by Marcelo Castillo (Argentina).
