Clamp and Carriage System
Barker Clamp and Carriage system is a three part unit. (one part is the “Log Clamp”, the other two parts are called the “drill carriage” or ‘slide base’)
- Log Clamp: $350.00
This holds the wood material. The self-centering Log Clamp holds your logs/poles/square beam securely in place while the drill cuts the tenon end of the log, without marring the log. Welded steel construction. Teflon slides, super tough finish. Portable.
- Drill Carriage/Slide Base: from $225.00
The is actually two parts…the “Drill Holder/Holster” (which is available in either a 1/2″ or 3/4′ drill chuck size…specific to certain models of drills), and the ‘Slide” which is what connects the ‘Drill Holder’ to the ‘Log Clamp’.
Note: You can order the parts individually, however they normally are ordered together.
NOTE: Drill holder can be ordered to fit either of the following:
- 3/4″ drive Milwaukee Super Hole Shooter Model #1854-1…for this specify the 3/4″ chuck size
- 1/2″ Milwaukee Drill Model #1663-20/ 1660-6 drills
(The Milwaukee #1660-1 is a single speed version of the #1663.20…It can be made to work. You’ll need to bend the metal clamp on the carriage so the “trigger” on the drill is accessable). For these order the 1/2″ chuck size.For any sort of production work we recommend the 3/4″ drive drill for its durability.
- You can also order the the drill carriage to accept both the 1/2″ and 3/4″ listed above
NOTE: The 1/2″ chuck drill carriage is not set up for a Milwaukee Hole Hawg…sorry.
