Hi I'm wondering if anyone has any cam clamps for sale? Need a few 4's, and 6's. If so how much would you like for them?

None for sale here, but I think Ken Cierp has clamp kits you can buy and build your own. May save a little money compared to new, fully assembled.

One just can't have too many clamps!!

Unless someone is getting out of the hobby, I doubt you'll find used clamps for sale. They're all being....used.

If you decide to go new, the best price I found was at Grizzly.com.

Cam clamps are deceptive. The Klemmsias are the old standard and almost always work well. Some of the imitators haven't gotten the geometry right and the clamps slip or don't apply enough pressure.

I have not used either Ken Cierp's or Grizzly's -- they may work beautifully. But given my experience with other producers, I'd probably just get a couple of each and see how they compare before investing in a pile of them.

Excuse me ---- So Rick, the point of your post was not to do a professional evaluation of cam clamps that you have actually used, but rather an effort to preemptively question and trash the integrity of two suppliers, who's clamps you have never purchased. Interesting?

Ken --

Just saw your post. No! I said, "I have not used Ken Cierp's ... they may work beautifully."

I and my wife, Cat Fox, own cams made by others who I prefer not to name publicly, that simply do not work. They slip, the cams have inadequate throw, etc. etc. They're junk. I have also examined Asian-made cams that were equally as bad.

And no, I wasn't offering to do a professional evaluation of a bunch of clamps nor was I pretending to have done so. I was just offering my experience with several different brands of cam clamps.

So the point of my post is just what I said: buy a couple, try them out, and decide if they're good. Only then, go ahead and buy the dozen or so every luthier needs.

Peace to all, this isn't a confrontation,
Rick

My experience: I've used Stewmac's cam clamps; they work very well for me. I have one of Ken Cierp's clamps. It also works very well.

Depends on your assembly process -- many of the "how to" guitar construction publications (Cory, Sloane, Young, Williams, KMG etc.) show them in use. Also many of the books have details showing how to make them. They can be handy for general tasks as well. In the KMG assembly process three are recommended and actually come in kit form as part of the "Success Kit Package".

Nah -- any ol clamp will do as long as it ahs the reach you ened. Cam clamps are nice because they're fast and easy to position.

Well I've managed to put two (guitars) together so far without them, but somehow I just don't feel like a real guitar builder....just kidding.

I can see how they would be nice. Straight even pressure, unlike you get with C-clamps....that twisting effect can be aggrevating.

Since I have the go-bar deck to do the top brace and back brace clamping, and I use it also to glue the top and back to the rims, I have a variety of c-clamps and those neat trigger bar clamps, I just haven't seen where I have to have that type of clamp. Now at first, I was just trying to get by on the cheap, and I have paid some for it. Those Harbor Freight trigger clamps tend to BREAK when you lease expect it. I have a neat bridge clamp, so I don't need the cam clamps for that process.

However, I do believe I should have a few, so maybe next order with LMI I will pick up a few.

Kevin, you are totally missing out. When I was a young boy, even before I knew what a cam clamp was, there was one time I....
Wait a second...wrong forum.
I built my kit with the three that came in Ken's Success Kit. You can probably do the entire build with just those three clamps. They were the only cam clamps I had but I did have some other varied clamps too. Some from my late father in law's Auto-body shop. They have deep throats but are clearly not for guitar building. LOL

They certainly are not necessary, but do come in VERY handy, and are quick and easy to use. I may try making some in the spring. I think I need another project.......;)

It's not difficult to make your own cam clamps.
