Stand massive bar clamps in table-saw miter slots

I’ve received a set of medium-duty Jorgensen bar clamps (F-style), and I discovered that their finish jaws slide properly into the T-style miter slots on my energy instruments (on each my SawStop desk noticed and Powermatic bandsaw). This stands the clamps up properly, making a wide range of glue-ups faster and simpler. It’s like having a spare set of palms. So as to add extra clamps, increase the workpiece by laying clamping cauls throughout the clamp heads which can be within the miter slots. Alternatively, you can add clamps with smaller jaws.
