  1. Interesting article. I will have to confess that pipe clamps were some of my first clamps and are my go-to clamps for most edge glue ups. I find them easier to use than the parallel clamps that I own (Bessy and Jorgenson). I also like the fact that I can buy different lengths of pipe or couple them together for a variety of sizes without buying more clamps. When edge gluing, I normally do one over and one under along the length. And I have Masonite pads that I've hot-glued on the jaws. I do prefer black pipe, though, as I think the heads slip less with them. I have never had a problem
  2. Found this interesting video this morning. Hope you enjoy this. He has ideas.
  3. Morning trip, before it gets too hot and sticky (stinky?) outside....spent $10, and a 10 minute drive each way. Feeding Frenzy when we got there...LONG gravel lane back to the place. One shed had fishing supplies, house had antiques. In front of the house was the usual clothes, shoes, and hats. Mainly Hunting and fishing gear. There was a line-up out in the yard, of snowblowers, mowers, and other wheeled objects ....then there was a table and a second shed..... Tub on the table. Another full of wrenches, and full of pliers, another full of screwdrivers....as for the shed.
  4. I don't know if anyone is interested in this, but my not-so-favorite TV woodworker has been crowing about these clamps for the last couple of years. So while looking for EZ outs in Lowes this morning, I saw these clamps on clearance for $7.50, versus the regular price of $30. They are welding clamps, so the pads are slightly smaller than the woodworking ones, and the handles aren't padded....I don't see either stopping anyone from using these on wood. Anyway, if you want some, this may be as cheap as they get. They open to 5", and have a throat of 6"; and yes, they are made in China. Anyway, j
  5. cartmMade this a few weeks ago at work to help the guys organize at work. As you can see it's become a maintenance issue.
  6. The only ones of these I have are the F-clamps. I've been happy with them. I originally got a few as "leave-behinds" but find they work well. Had one where the handle slipped and they replaced it, no questions asked. I noted his comment about "the demise of American-made clamps" https://www.popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/harbor-freight-clamps-one-year-later
  7. It has been some time back when I was out picking that I ran across this wooden clamps. They were not all found at the same place but all came out of old woodworking shops. They just looked to cool to leave and it nothing else will make nice wall art in the shop. I havne found any real markings or names on any of them so I know no real history to them. These are about 50" long and in full working order. The loose end will just slide up and down the wooden bar but lock in when pressure is applied. The adjustment end is all free and will screw in and out. I then ran across this neat w
  8. He has I believe two of the Delta or jet sanders. He needs clamps I wonder how many kreg automaxx clamps it would take to trade....hummmmm... I want one of those sanders...
  9. Still with the camera issues today. Waiting on a call back about a second Opinion on this knee. Plywood was rough cut to size. leaving quite a bit extra.. Took a few more cuts to get just the right fit. Even used a block plane to straighten out the saw cuts.....started grabbing clamps and a mallet. Found a couple spots needing trimmed up. Got more clamps down. 6 clamps, so far, and haven't glue things up, yet Had one square inside, to check a corner, or three.. Seemed to be square. Have most of the gaposis fixed. Decided to load the box
  10. Stumble down to the shop this morning. Raised panel needed fine tuned, before any glue was used. Spokeshave, and a couple other planes to reduce any "fat spots" along the beveled edges. Sandpaper on a block of wood to refine some spots.....finally thought I could spread some Elmer's, and dig out some clamps.. Square and a tape measure showed things weren't quite squared up, so that diagonal clamp to pull it back to square. Better view? That is the spokeshave I used. let this forest of clamps sit a awhile....... Ok, stumbled back down, and checked on the gl
  11. If anybody is looking for clamps check our Harbor Freight. I got the 6" clamps for $2.99, the 18" for $4.99 and the 12" wooden one for $10. I thought that was a pretty good deal.
  12. A few days ago, a pkg arrived via UPS. It was a box from Amazon. Knowing I hadn't ordered anything, it was a mystery box. Upon opening it, I was delighted. A good PW buddy, who shall remain anonymous, sent these. THANK YOU! Mr. Anonymous.
  13. Had to repair a "rustic" picture, but it's hard to get a clamp that far in! Could I enter these in the "Whatzit" contest? John
  14. Question to all. Has anyone closely compared the aluminum bar clamps sold thru Woodcraft to those sold at HF? I'm not a big HF fan, but I'll be darned if I can see any difference in these clamps. For a 36" one, HF is $11.99 while WC is $16.40. Appreciate any insight someone may have. Thanks so much and apologies if this has been covered already.
  15. Looking to buy some universal fence clamps. They look pretty much the same. Looking for brand recommendations. Thank You.
  16. Bailing wire was once was considered the best known method responsible for the making the American west. Today that has changed by the advent of Duct tape, Super glue, Velcro, as wood crafters Hi tech screws & biscuts. But below I have a helper to act as a second pair of hands for the guy that works by himself in a wood shop, that makes boxes into anything. These supports are similar to those my Grandfather had. The dimensions for each bracket are 3" wide 7" long and 7" tall and made from 1/2 Baltic Birch ply wood as my preferred material for shop jig
  17. I made some wedge clamps for the workbench that fit in the bench dog holes. Herb
  18. Each Christmas Bessey clamps has a 12 Days Of Christmas Give-a-way on Facebook. This year I was lucky enough to score one of the prizes! Thank You, Bessey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  19. I have used these ratchet clamps for ten years or so but first I had to cut off the hooks and cut the end of the roll off to where it is not lapped, thread that end in to the lever and sew it back and forth a few times and you got four ratchet clamps worth hundreds I got this sale book today in the mail. These worked great when I made these clocks. They worked good enough to close up the cracks where it looked the table saw was in tip top shape..Like even someone else made them!!!....Aw yea, it was Harbor Freight that should take the credit????
  20. Saw these being used in a YouTube video. Found some at Lowes. They're great for clamping temporary things like stop blocks, etc. Quicker than my 6" Jorgies. They hold well. And, much easier to use than spring clamps.
  21. Rockler has the Bessy K body Revo Jr's on sale this month. $179.99 for two each of the 18", 24", and 36" clamps. Are these clamps good clamps to purchase or are they to small and flexible? Is this a great price? Danl
  22. If you recall, I cut and sized some walnut strips for a rifle case. After setting on the bench a day, the strips developed bows. I wanted to save all my labor so, the pictures below, with verbiage added, detail my high tech solution. First a couple of de-bending chambers were required. One 10' section of sewer pipe, cut in half did the trick. Had to cement end caps on each. The work Mate came in handy, too. The formula for the de-bending solution and it's application is quite complicated so, pay close attention. First, fill both de-bending chambers with water. Then add wood. Fin
  23. When glueing, do you use anything to keep glue off the clamps? Can I use a spray, like Pam cooking spray or dry teflon spray? What about using a bar of soap? I don't want anything that will penetrate the wood. I've heard that some use wax paper, but I think that would be bothersome.
  24. I have between 300 & 400 clamps of all descriptions. I'm currently working on a shelving unit with six shelves. Because the span if 48", I added some front and back stiffeners to the shelf*. I discovered that I can only do two and a half shelves at a time because I ran our of 4 to 12" F-clamps. So I had to do an assembly line and pull from a shelf that had been sitting for 30 minutes to the one being worked up.(Yesterday). Today I'm fastening the shelves to the sides. One of the front clamps on each shelf, one on the back along one side only so I d
  25. looks like the Pony/Jorgenson business has been bought by a Chinese firm. Heartbreaking...
