Abstract : First and second mirror image identical clamps clamp opposite edges of a printed circuit board along the length of those edges for holding the board during wave soldering of components to the board. Each clamp includes a support rail and a clamp rail wherein the support rail has a shoulder on which a portion of the clamp rail can abut. The clamp rail has a two walled groove which receives a corner of the board at an edge thereof for clamping that edge to the support rail. Screws couple the two rails and force them against the board edge. Patents. (RH)
