Corner Clamps for Cabinet Carcasses?

Furnished content.
(from WoodNet.net)


I have a dickens of a time getting my cabinet carcasses square. Even with rabbits and dadoes, and using clamping squares, they're always out of whack. It's one of those things that seems so easy for everyone, and I just can't get it. My pieces just keep sliding around. I'm thinking about getting a couple Krieg corner clamps. Curious what you all think about these and corner clamps in general.

It all adds up...

Furnished content.
(from WoodNet.net)


Was logged into my LV account and decided to review my order history. I was always curious as to how much I have spent there over the years (member since 05).On a lark, decided to download order history (copy/paste)and analyze in Excel. Over the last ~18 years, I have spent over $30K (CAD) at Lee Valley!!! Majority (2/3rd)of it is front loaded (05 to 11) when I was ramping up, but it all adds up!!! Now mind you it's not all WW but also includes kitchen and gardening stuff (more so lately)but majority (>90%) would be related to woodworking. Not a cheap hobby as this does not include machines (those would be extra OR Powertools OR other tool vendors although most of my stuff is from LV). Over the years, I am sure I have saved money by doing things on my own and derived satisfaction at a personal level, but still it's an eye opener.
