I really didn’t need any new clamps (yeah right) but a guy was liquidating his cabinet shop and posted a Craig’s List ad. He had a bunch of the older style Bessey clamps and some F-style clamps. I offered $100 for everything and he took it. I came home with about 20 new clamps. I had to move around some of the clamps on my rolling clamp cart and make some new holders. Only took about a half hour and now my clamps are resting peacefully in their new home.
Here are the parallel clamps I already had (24” Jorgy’s)
I was laminating some pieces together last night and I needed just about everyone of them, too. Glad I bought them!
That acquisition brings my parallel clamp collection up to a respectable number. I really prefer them to f-style and pipe clamps. I’m not Wood Whisperer deep in clamps, yet, but I’m getting there!
Thanks for looking.
