Default WIP fretwork clock and question

I have all the parts cut and am ready to glue. Thanks to all the help here my parts dry fit greatly. My question is on clamping during glue up. My back ground for gluing wood is mainly large clamps and solid pices of wood. I fear I would break a lot of parts if I used my clamps on this fret work. So how do you clamp your fret work when gluing?

Hi Mike, I've never made a fretwork clock like the one you're making but I asked the same question awhile ago. Bill (can't remember his last name) but an avid clock maker, told me he used Aileen's tacky glue. It has a very quick set up time and you should be able to hold the parts for the few seconds it takes the glue to hold. I've found the same to be true of Weldbond, it set's up very quickly.
Hope this helps.
