Re: How much sheer is nee

Posted by Terry Mcadams on Jul 20, 2004

I use 3/4 by 1/2" stock for all my sheer clamps. I also use one size smaller ring nails (3/4"). With careful measuring, I rarely get a nail poking through the clamp. When I do, I grind it off with the Dremel.

Probably saves at least a pound per boat, is easier to clamp and plane, uses less glue and is a bit cheaper.

I also do it for the sheer fun of it.
