I was wandering through a Dupont Company Salvage outlet in Wilmington Area of Delaware and I spied a box full of paper clamps. Those of you who work in office buildings are familiar with them. They are used to hold a lot of pages together.
I’ve used rubber bands for clamps before and I thought these would work.
Work they do.
I’m using these to clamp some face boards on my drawers fronts under construction.
Available (at least in my box) in three sizes. 1/4”, 1/2” and 3/4”
I also use them on my story stick.
Where else can you get 100 clamps in a shoe box.
I’m not sure what the retail price is but I got maybe 150 for $4.00
About 65 of the large ones and the rest are the smaller ones.
Check out used furniture outlets, you may find a box full there. This is where these came from. Desks that were taken out of service.
