PVC Pipe clamps..

Post by Capt UB » Sat Apr 27, 2019 1:06 pm

I finally cut some PVC pipe clamps....

I used the thin walled 1.25" dia.irrigation pipe I had laying around.

I'm hooked, going to make some bigger ones and smaller ones.

I think the thin walled has less pressure and is better for clamping epoxy.

Wish I had tried these earlier on the SandPiper build.

Just be aware after a few good uses they start quickly losing clamp pressure.

The thin wall ones do.... Just found out!

Much cheaper the buying the real ones.

Maybe drill a hole and put a wing nut and bolt in.. :wink:

I used 3" schedule 40. They worked well for doing the rubrails, but ultimately I ended up buying more spring clamps.
