Re: "Secrets for Stronger Edge Joints" video

I watched the video "Secrets for Stronger Edge Joints" video that was linked on the Fine Woodworking Eletter that I received today.

While the video was basically correct, I want to point out a flaw in the technique.  Using this tecnique, the cauls and clamp pads at the ends of the joints, will end up glued to the panel with the squeezeed out glue. I use a piece of waxed paper between the cauls and the panel to prevent this.  I also use Quick Grip clamps at the ends without wood pads.  The built-in rubberized clamp pads  release from the glue and the soft pads prevent damage to the panel.  I imagine any clamp that has a plastic/rubberized pad will function equally.
