I had a workshop fire and am desperately trying to replace a type of quick grip bar clamp that were made by the American Tool Company in the 1980's. What makes them different is that they can clamp something 5 1/2" deep whereas newer styles of this clamp type only usually clamp around 3 inches deep. I used these in a specific restoration I do and so I could use several of these clamps that are no longer made. They were made in several lengths and I am interested in any of them with the 5 1/2" deep jaws. Willing to travel for them, have them shipped or whatever I need to do. Will pay your price!!! PLEASE sell me yours!

Craftsman also made some of the 5 1/2" deep clamps that are 33 inches long and I will also pay very well for some of these.

Rebuilding my shop, trying to also find the items listed below:

1) heavy cast iron grinder stands.

2) A large vintage American made bench top vise with 8" jaws in good working condition.

3) vintage METAL American auto parts cabinets (Auto-Lite, Sun etc) to replace ones damaged in fire.

4) Nice 75th anniversary Craftsman tool chest in good condition. Prefer the ones with three boxes that stack on top of each other.

Not asking for charity, just good old items in usable condition that I can purchase.

** I travel to Iowa about once a month and so can also travel to mid western states to pick up items.

*** Would appreciate advice on locking castor wheels to use on my woodworking tables. The ones I have purchased from Woodcraft are driving me crazy as they keep coming apart on the nylon/plastic outer layer. There has to be a better quality available, that are not made in China. Anyone have experience with this?
