Strongsville, OH – Northeast Ohio tool manufacturer, Woodpeckers, recently released a new product that addresses an issue facing woodworkers since the invention of glue. Joint Bridge Clamping Pads align the faces of your panel sections without actually touching the joint line. By bridging over the seam, they avoid getting glued to your project and have better leverage.
The bridging action also comes in handy when working on through-inlaid cutting boards and other projects where a sandwiched piece extends above and below the main panel sections. For older clamps that lack the soft-faced pads found on modern clamps, Joint Bridges can distribute clamping pressure and eliminate dents in your material.
Woodpeckers president, Richard Hummel, told us, “With so many different applications, we decided to offer Joint Bridges in bulk packages.” You can get them in 12-packs, but the better deal is on the 24-pack, which covers you for a couple glue-ups at a time.
Woodpeckers has focused on the needs of hobbyist woodworkers since 1988 and began manufacturing the majority of their offerings in 1993. The company makes precision layout tools, router tables and lifts, innovative clamping tools, carbide-tipped woodturning tools and a wide variety of helpful shop products. Their facility houses a vast array of computer-controlled mills and lathes and employs over 200 skilled American workers.
