I think youíre on the right track - though the third clamp actually has the least grip. It must have a weaker spring. But the one sided part likely was the root cause. Since this was paper to wood, I used Titebond II. I suspect the moisture left at different rates on the two sides. If I ever do this again, Iíll try epoxy.

I tried an overnight bend. Wet with ammonia water, then clamp against the rail with a 1/8th spacer on the nose and a clamp on the tail and nothing between.

It worked. Iím putting the edge balsa on now.
