Planing sheer clamps

Posted by Brad on Mar 3, 2005

I'm planing the sheer clamps on a Mill Creek 16.5. It seems the 30" radius is going to be too steep to easily bend the deck down to the carlins. My concern is that even though the deck is nailed to the sheer clamps the tight radius bend required will cause gaps between the nails at the outside edge.
