Anyone have 2 or 3 bar clamps I could borrow for a few days? I am replacing a panel on a tank and need them to hold it together for the seal. I would rather not go buy them for 1 project. Could trade some used gear for letting me use them

Could you small wood screws, or better, #8 or #10 truss screws, to hold the panel in place temporarily, and then repair the holes when done?

Do you still need to borrow these? I am back in town and do have some you can borrow. I have three 24" quick release ones, a six of the old wood screw type 24" ones and a few 12" clamps in both types.

You may also need some corner clamps to keep it all square. I do not have those.

I went and bought 5 lol but thank you. The first panel broke I guess I had them too tight. When I get back in town I will strip it down again and try again with another panel

You also may have had the clamp too far into the glass. The pressure points on the clamps should be in-line with the side glass and not past it.

That's exactly what I did thinking the back baffles would support the pressure
