Finally been spending some time in the shop getting situated and basically buggering around relaxing. Worked on some jigs I have wanted to build and other basic stuff like shelves and a couple of work benches. Now I am eyeing some of the basic implements I have and got to thinking about pipe clamps. I have eight 3/4" that I got from a neighbor in good shape. I had the parts for two 1/2" that I finally bought the pipes for to get them ready for use. This has got me wondering about the advantage/disadvantage of 1/2" vs. 3/4"? I suppose the jaws are a bit deeper for 3/4". Is pipe flex a real issue? Or only if it the pipe is longer (say over 4 feet)? The price difference if just buying the jaws between the two isn't a whole lot, but is some that may be worth saving for other things. Thoughts?
No announcement yet.
Pipe clamps - 1/2" or 3/4"??
