Ellis Scissor Clamps provide a fast, easy, accurate and affordable way to build column forms for pouring your concrete columns. Steel bars clamp snug to your wood forms. Simply slide each red castings along the bar up to the adjacent bar, drop the wedge through a slots in the in the casting and matching slot in the bar. Hammer down each wedge to seat bars tight against the wood forms. Slot spacing in bars and castings have been designed to eliminate dead spaces and insure you are always able to clamp tight to your wood form.
To dismantle, simply tap the wedge up to loosen the scissor clamp bars from the wood form.
All parts are connected to make single units with no loose parts to get lost.
The units are identical, no right or left, up or down.
Only a hammer, nails, and lumber are needed to erect form. Ellis Column Clamps are made of high carbon steel with malleable iron castings to promote long life and many reuses.
The chart above indicates the finished concrete size each set of clamps will form and assumes use of 3/4" or 5/8" Plywood and 2x4 or 2x6 vertical walers (laying flat).
All prices are by the set (two scissors).
