Here's a quick cheap way to make an adjustable clamp to hold your parts down while gluing, using a small clamp and a rubber band. 
Hope this can be useful to someone. Photos are only for showing it in use. To make it  tighter, open the clamp and pull the rubber band through after it's tight as you need, then close the clamp.

How is this better that just wrapping it with a rubber band? Inquiring minds want to know. [confused]

The greatest feature is that it is adjustable. In my experience a rubber band on hand might be to small or to large and not providing the proper tension. With delicate items they can be clumsy to wrap around. I'm talking here about holding something together while gluing parts together. Whereas standard clamps may not be suitable. I work with miniatures and this comes in very handy.
