You don't have to exert more pressure than you normaly would.MJP":29dfg579 said:Is there any advantage in using very high pressure in glueups as opposed to the "normal" clamping pressure that we usually use?
Does this result in a stronger joint?
If so what's the point since normal glueups give us joints which are stronger than the wood anyway?
I can't see the point. What am I missing?
A veneer press is a different beast.yanky":4urqszli said:Look up veneer press and cold press on ebay. They often go very cheap when auctioned. Lots of different types and styles.
True, but people listing them don’t know what the correct names, and are often just dealers, so they are listed under names like “cold press”, “laminate press” and even “veneer press”. I bought one which wasn’t hydraulic and it still gives sufficient pressure due to the small size.dzj":3eyh4taq said:A veneer press is a different beast.yanky":3eyh4taq said:Look up veneer press and cold press on ebay.

I actually have looked locally for a used panel/ frame press. Best case, by the time I get it home and do a few repairs and alterations is ~2000E.
If I was to build it myself, the materials would be about 300-400. That's why I asked if anyone considered making one.
