More Leverage on Clamps
Sometimes I have a hard time getting a good grip on the small handles of many of my clamps, making it difficult to tighten them.
To solve this problem, I simply drill a 3/8"-dia. hole in each handle. Then I slip a short (6") length of dowel through the hole, as shown in the drawing at right. This way, the dowel allows me to get a better grip when I really need to tighten it.
Have a nice weekend,
