"Holy Smokes, what a difference over a fabric strap clamp and the amount of pressure you can get. Definitely check out the Merle Clamp--it's a really good investment!" Quote from The Wood Whisperer.

The Merle Woodworking Band Clamp features quick release corners and pivoting, self-adjusting jaws that align to any angle, even circles!

Includes a 23 ft. steel banding reel, four quick release corners, and four pivoting jaw inserts. The flexible jaw inserts are non-marring and are easily removed. They are made of high impact ABS plastic for a long life and heavy use. The dual pivot feature allows the Merle to clamp virtually any size, shape, or project securely! Perfect for circles and ovals and polygonal shapes.

  • Ships with 23' STEEL banding reel.
  • Almost no capacity limitation!
  • Steel banding provides greater clamping pressure than fabric strap clamps.
  • Clamps as small as 2-5/8" x 2-5/8" to 69" x 69", or 23' around, but can be extended to any length by using standard 3/8" steel banding or strapping.
  • Holds any type of frame for easy gluing, nailing or screwing.
  • Even jointing force at all corners.
  • Excellent for wide cabinet type frames (use in the center or edges),
  • Excellent for for narrow picture frames.
  • Use as much or as little clamping pressure as needed.
  • Cast aluminum and steel construction makes our woodworking band clamp a tough tool that will work hard and long for you.
  • Quick Release Corner Clips pull off with finger pressure. Just clip on more corners and get to work!

I have been in woodworking for over 45 years, and usually used the old Pony strap clamps for odd sizes. I cannot believe I didn't find these earlier. They take clamping odd shapes, corner clamping and segmented turning sections to a whole new level of ease. Also pleased with the amount of steel and cast aluminum in these. I got in on the extra four corner per clamp deal, bought four right off the bat. Goodbye Pony, hello Merle!

Have used my Merle Corner Clamp for many different difficult jobs and have had very good results from it. It is easy to use as well as clamping the project very well. I have had no problems with it. Next I intend to purchase the additional corner pieces.
