Anyone have a recommendation for a readily available corner clamps for holding walls together at 90 degree angles so you can glue them?

IIRC, Micro-Mark sells these. Then there are the magnetic tables with bunch of magnets you can arrange for gluing walls at right angles.

I've got one of those and use it pretty frequently.  I had always thought I'd get around to building some of those "Right Clamps" but haven't. 
I think they are expensive and can be cloned cheaper, but not if you don't get around to it.

Too funny. I have purchased the parts to do this a couple of times and have lost them over the years before actually cloning them....ugh.

Best wishes, Dave

Recently started to make my own modified version of the Coffman right angle clamps, specifically designed for N scale car.  After some false starts, I think I've hit on a winner.  Will post photos and a parts list later.

I have used 3-2-1 blocks with some neodymium magnets with success.  Any square steel should work as well.
