I have a grand total of 4 clamps :( ... 2 bessey kbody and 2 bessy uniclamps. But the uniclamps are dirving me nuts, they keep jamming cause of some glue thats got on the rails. Whats the best way of getting it off? Its just pva but its stuck pretty good. The kbodies dont seem to mind the glue but they could do with some tlc as well.

Knife, chisel, any edge will remove the glue. It'll just flick off.

Like Noely said..... I'll add that giving your clamps a wipe down with a damp cloth as soon as you're thru with em should prevent it happening again...

I was reading David Charlesworth's Furniture Making Techniques Vol 1 the other day (I know, I know... one day I'll do some proper woodwork :roll: :) ) and he recommended shaping old toothbrush handles into scrapers for removing excess glue! Plastic on metal (or wood) is less prone to cause scratches.
