You can never have enough clamps, it's true, I often find that I use up most of my clamps in big glue up's so thought it was time I got them all together and in one place!

Far too tidy in there. A bit off topic but how do you find the overhead crown guard in day to day use ? I am considering one of them to go on my much older and inferior table saw.

Just a thought but if you cut slots in your timber just oversize the thickness of the bars the clamps will simply sit on the timber & be easier to remove & replace, also the bar is then against the wall.
This is one of mine made years ago from an off cut of 3x2

Hi Ollie just back from work, it does draw most dust not all, its built like a German tiger tank, it's very easy to adjust but it's always in the way, often it's tricky to see and use your push sticks so yes much safer and healthier but at a cost, would I advise? Yes I would still purchase the crown guard again. Hope that helps. Louie

Good to know it works and is built well, I know its going to be in the way but has to be better than the old school riving knife mounted thing that I took off or the nothing I have now.

Yes it's well built Ollie and I bought it from Axminster tools, I believe they still stock that product. Yes the dust hood fixed to the riving knife is poor this will be a major improvement. It's heavy Ollie when it arrives, I remember when the box arrived at my workshop, I was shocked at the weight of the boom arm.

I was looking at this today, clever way and better than the way I have my clamps, I think a nice project for the weekend.

@MARK.B. mine came from a lovely old boy called Ian, I’ve done work for him for 40 years now & he in his eighties, a few years ago he was having a clear out in his garage & gave me a few things including the saw, I imagine the saw must have been his dads as Ian wasn’t into woodwork at all
