While these are actually two separate but related questions, they collided for me today (yet again) while gluing up a picture frame.
I have yet to be satisfied with an approach to gluing up 90 degree corners that actually works well, and doesn’t send me into Anxiety Land. I’ve tried simple clamps (along with 90 degree corner forms),and the commercial 90 degree corner clamping fixtures but found neither of them promise an easy and reliable fit no matter how much I prepare for the gluing process.
I could use some sage advice based on experience from you folks. While not a fan of the right angle clamp fixture, I note that Housolution is selling a 90 angle clamp that has received good reviews. BUT, I also note that Bessy makes a strap clamp system that uses plastic 90 degree wijits to clamp all four corner at once. Both appear to allow easy access to clean up any squeeze out and allows for a double check for square with diagonal measurements.
Anyone have actual experience with one of these approaches , or a strong opinion about which has the better chance of success?
Am I the only guy who goes into glue up with, however well prepared with a dry fit, clean up at hand, etc, yet with a clenched jaw expecting some issue of another ?
