20 Gobar Deck Clamping Rods

The best Gobar Deck Clamps known to man!

Ok, but seriously. Gobar clamps are pretty simple things, and fiberglass rods are pretty much the same, right? I agree.

My gobar clamps are no better or worse than StewMac’s or LMI’s. So why do they charge double the price? These are excellent quality fiberglass rods, in 24″ lengths, and have end caps on them so they “stick” in place better.

You get twenty (20) 24″ long premium fiberglass gobar deck clamps with end caps.

Excerpt from the book:

 

I’m cheap by nature. Dirt cheap. I love the ease of buying pre-made tools and parts, but I have a hard time swallowing paying exorbitant amounts for simple tools that I can build at home.

The gobar deck is a crazy simple tool for gluing multiple small parts at the same time. I use the gobar deck and gobar dishes for gluing top and back braces for acoustic guitars, but you might use it for gluing up odd shaped parts, as an alternative for the even more expensive vacuum press, or gluing up multiple copies of the same piece without paying $15-$25 per clamp.

Stewart-MacDonald# sells a very nice gobar deck kit for $106, plus $94 for each dish. LMI# also sells one for $141, plus $69 for each dish. I would encourage you to patronize both of these companies, as I do… they offer hard-to-find tools and parts for decent prices, and offer a ton of help to the beginning guitar builder and repairman. The thing is, if you’re like me, at a glance, building the gobar deck itself was a no-brainer, but it took a while to figure out how to make the dishes with only basic tools, and a simple jig.

The great thing about the gobar deck and dishes is that you can adapt them to your needs. If you need them longer and narrower, just tweak the plans. L-shaped? No problem. So, let’s get started!
