There is a place near me which several times a year holds a ‘sale’ of sorts. I’m pretty sure it’s a variety of vendors that participate. The items there are usually furniture, some electronics and HAND TOOLS. This is also the place we acquired our secretary desk.
I got the clamp pictured above about a year or so ago from this gentleman who had his wares displayed in 5 gallon buckets. It looked so cool with its patina of use and age that I picked it out and examined it to be sure it still operated. Imagining a double digit price tag, I asked the price…
It cost me three dollars.
Doing some research this morning I discovered that this clamp is a type much sought after. I’m glad I got it. The jaw opens to allow a clearance of just 13 inches, so I guess that makes it a 12 inch clamp.
