    Miter Spring clamp question

    I'm considering adding some miter spring clamps for frames and small moldings. I've never used them before and wondered what's the best way to deal with the holes they leave?

    Thanks

    Steam and fill. If you can't tolerate filler, use temporary clamping ears fastened with hot melt or paper joints.

    The holes are not very big.

    If it matters, I use wax sticks.

    The holes are very small. Make sure you buy Collins brand. Apparently the cheap knock-offs you see on Amazon are sub-standard.

    I think I have paid international shipping on every Collins tool made. They all do what it says on the box.
