These giant rubber bands are simple, form-fitting clamps for gluing bindings and fingerboards.

Narrow bands are favorites for holding bindings in place while the glue dries. Use them cut or uncut. 1 pound pack of 15 bands, 1/4" wide x 80" long.

Wide bands are a heavier version we like for gluing a fingerboard to a neck without setting up cumbersome clamps and cauls. Pulling equally from both sides, they help to center the fingerboard on the neck. Wrap them as tightly as you need; these bands are plenty strong. 1 pound pack of 5 bands, 3/4" wide by 84" long.

no just a one trick pony

These bands are also excellent for gluing fret boards to the neck, wrapped tightly they apply even clamping pressure all the way down the neck and will center the board on the neck as well. I swear by them.

A real painsaver

A fantastic tool to glue wood bindings. Even after the use of tape, when you wrap it aroud the instrument, you can see the glue squeeze out of the channel. Several turns of that tightened rubber band adds a huge amount of pressure on the binding. One set is full enough for a full guitar. i'll never glue any binding without it anymore.

what a great help. I use them all the time now, at first I just used regular bands . now I use these because they pull more consistent then the others. I use them cut and uncut.

Tape would have pulled off some of the finish on this 54' Guild. These rubber bands are the only way to go!

A very good product, but try not to touch the glue (Elmers or DAP yellow glue)- it will eat the rubber

Very useful

These things are really great. They don't stick to the glue, don't mark the wood, and clamp wood bindings way tighter than twine.

The extra long rubber bands give me the flexibility to wrap different mandolins with just the right force, as I am creating some new styles that I am experimenting with new bracing, top and bottom thicknesses, resonator styles, etc. I will get much good from them!
