Hand screws for a quick vise
Old-fashioned hand screw wood clamps still have a place in the tool kit, for several reasons. Here’s one. You can make a quick vise for holding boards on edge with a few hand screws and small bar clamps. Set the hand screws to about the thickness of your workpiece, clamp them down, and you are set to go. You can use the same trick for doors, but clamp the hand screw so it extends past the end of the sawhorse.
