Tired of buckled panels, messy gluing tables, heavy pipe clamps or loss of valuable floor or workbench space? Yeah, we were too! The Panel Max Glue Press System not only eliminates each of these issues, it is also user friendly and can be expanded to accommodate most any size panel you need to glue up! It does all this while producing well laminated boards or flat panels each and every time you use it. Much better than traditional clamps like pipe clamps, f-clamps or bar clamps!
The Panel Max Glue Press System applies even press on both ends and both sides of your panel project which helps create high quality joints and eliminates buckled or warped panels. This alone is reason enough to include this system in your workshop collection of ?go to? tools. Of course, that?s not all. The Panel Max has linking arms or more accurately a top and bottom pressure assembly that adjust to any thickness of stock from 0? up to 5?.
The length you can clamp is only limited by the length of your wall where the Panel Max is mounted, the number of mounting rails that are installed (where the vertical assemblies are hung from) and the amount of vertical press assemblies you have. Each mounting rail is approx. 39-3/8? in length and my be cut to the desired size if necessary.
The Panel Max can clamp panel widths up to 41? using ?? stock. With the max thickness stock of 5? you can clamp panel widths up to 39?. You can actually clamp a single large panel, or you can clamp multiple, more narrow panels all at one time up to the capacity of the clamp. To do this, clamp a couple of smaller panels edge to edge and leave out the glue between the first panel outer edge and the next starting edge of the adjacent panel to be glued.
The Panel Max Glue Press includes 1 each 39? mounting rail and 3 each 43? vertical clamp assemblies. We recommend using one vertical clamp 12? apart on center. Keep this in mind when deciding what you need to get for your most commonly built projects. The Package also includes full instructions to get you started and on your way to gluing up panels and boards with much less effort and aggravation than ever before!
