July 28, 2015 | 3:16 pm CDT

Doucet introduces the Drawer Assembly Clamp. The Drawer Master assembles drawers with standard finger type dovetails, sliding type dovetails, bored and doweled drawers and tongue & dado box joints. It features an ergonomic workstation suitable for assembly of a user’s boxes directly in the clamp. It is equipped with double acting air cylinders that can apply compression progressively, allowing for easy fitting of the bottom panel in the lateral grooves. Its mobile clamping surface is supported by a large triangular structure that is designed to apply the lateral compression evenly over the full height of the drawer boxes. The opening and closing of the clamp for different widths is done by releasing a simple latch. The Progressive Compression Mode operates as a jog button. It offers the operator total control and flexibility in the execution of the assembly process. Its two-hand control keeps the operator's fingers away from the danger zone during the compression cycle, adds Doucet. Features include a Universal Drawer Box Clamp with a fixed left jaw and a manually adjustable right hand jaw plus rapid set jaw opening, with no tools needed for set up. It is suitable for dovetail or dowel construction capacity and measures 10” H x 24” W x 36” L.  Additional features include the Quick or Progressive Compression assembly modes and a two-hand push-button operation safety feature.
