Preferred framing clamps

I'm just starting to do my own framing, and find the band clamp to be almost unworkable. Does anyone use them? Is there some technique I'm missing? Are there better alternatives? What do you use?

I've used threaded rods with metal corners. Rods are 1/4" and you can adjust lengths easily with rod joiners. Round large floral shaped nuts are used to tighten.

Re: Preferred framing clamps

Thanks, Steve. I found just such a clamp as you described for $30 from Woodcraft. It sounds like a better alternative - lets see if I get the same mileage.

Re: Preferred framing clamps

Hi Bob: I spent the bucks on four of these, heavy duty and I'm happy with them. Very easily adjusted.

Re: Preferred framing clamps

I plan on making myself something like this once I get my Nobex miter saw.

Re: Preferred framing clamps

I'm really new at framing, but hope you get some ideas from my home made clamp. It's from bent L braces and threaded rods. I used it so far on one frame.
It proved both ridged and flexible. Modest cost.
