Step 1: What You Will Need
length of wood to match the length of the sash clamp
2 bits of scrap ply or any wood,(to match the size of the ends of the clamp)
and a bench vice
Step 2: Fill in the Gap With Wood
once you have cut your length of wood that matches the same length of the clamp.
push it in the gap (you will know where i mean,as there is only one gap)
but before this just slide the end off the clamp.
once your wood fits nice and snug,replace the end.
Step 3: Glue the Scrap Wood
now taking the clamp as shown in the pic.
glue the scrap piece of not too thick wood, too both ends.
Step 4: Finish
now place in your bench vice.
close the vice.
you can now vice any length of wood ,
i have 5 sash clamps and two are for this purpose.
