Not sure what all you can do with that pile of Toggle Clamps sitting in your shop? Wondering why you should own them in the first place?

A few years ago, we invited Highland customers to submit their toggle clamp jig designs to Wood News. We were very impressed with the creativity exhibited in many of these designs.

Take a look through the Toggle Clamp Jig Gallery to get inspired – maybe you will find a few good ways to use toggle clamps in your own shop.

And if you have any great jig designs that aren’t shown in the gallery, we’d love to hear about them. Drop them in the comments below!
