Cam Clamp

About This Item

Traditional cam clamps made of hardwood and steel, for years of daily use.

They're faster and easier to use than metal C-clamps, and they give strong pressure for instrument assembly. Slide the upper jaw into position and flip the offset cam lever to tighten the clamp. The jaws have protective cork lining.

Small clamp has 4-1/2" depth; the large clamp is 8-1/2" deep.
Both sizes open to 8".

Stewart-MacDonald cam clamps are crafted from sturdy maple and strong rust-resistant galvanized spring steel, for years of daily use.

Great clamps

By

Verified Buyer


I have 10 small and 10 large and these cam clamps are quality tools. I also have 4 of the Klemsia brand clamps and they are nowhere near as nice as the Stewart MacDonald clamps. I purchased the Stewart MacDonald clamps several years ago and do not know if the ones that are currently being sold are as good but the ones I have are a real pleasure to use.

Nice clamp, but didn't work for me

By

Verified Buyer


The clamp is too long to fit through the soundhole of a standard size classical guitar. The biggest problem is, the smaller clamp is too short to make it to the bridge from one part inside, and the other outside the soundhole, and the shorter clamp is too short to reach the bridge to clamp it

Nice to see these back!

These are close to the original clamps and, to me, an improvement over the recent double sided handle clamps. The original clamps (from about 10 years ago) are still my favorite.

A luthierÆs necessity

I tried to build the Stew-Mac Ukulele kit with grip claps from the hardware store. DidnÆt work! Got the cam clamps and did the job right. These are a must for any real work on acoustic bodied instruments, but you probably already know that.

Quick clamping pressure

By

Verified Buyer


I also have the same clamps, but with hand screw adjustment, which is good for applying precise clamping pressure. However, nothing beats the speed at which one can apply clamping pressure with these cam clamps.

Solid Clamps

You get what you pay for. These clamps are sturdy and well made. You could spend hours making them yourself, or you could just buy them and keep building guitars. Either way, StewMac's Cam Clamps rock.

Best things EVER

I purchased a few of these to work on my soprano uke kit, and they are absolutely the best for clamping the bracing and whatnot. I am definitley ordering more. Some day when I move up to larger instruments I will get the large ones, but for now these are perfect for my tiny uke!
