I recently purchased on the internet some planking clamps for POF ship building from China.
They were so simple to make, and worked so wonderfully well, I decided to make some myself.
Photo below is the eBay purchased clamp, they were around $30-US plus delivery.
I have used these clamps from China have about 30 of them they work very good on pof builds, I THINK THEY ARE GREAT, to me i would rather spend the money and save the time of doing them myself, also there is a cost involved in the wood, machine screw waser and wing nut maybe small but it is there.

What diameter screw did you use (mm)?
Do they fit in between your Enterprise frames?
I'm thinking of batching these out by getting the profiles right on pieces on long strips of wood then just cutting the strip across the width. I would expect that's how they do it in the factory.
I feel it'll take more time to sand the finished pieces than it takes to profile and cut them.
