Clamps clamps and more clamps! Never enough clamps! When you are gluing up a project and just need that one more clamp, call your brother-in-law. And then run to the clamp store for some more Clamps1

Great collection. From time to time the Woodcraft store in my area has Jet 40” F clamps on sale for $10 each. The unfortunate part about that is that I never have the extra money when the sale is on. When I fisrt got into woodworking I bougt some clamps at Harbor Freight. They’ve held up quite nicely. I’ve also been able to acquire some from a good and generous friend. For years i’ve been wanting to buy some K style clamps. To date I have one and it was made by Pittsburg which is a Harbor Freight brand. I just can’t believe how much they cost. I can’t afford $35-$40 per clamp. For me pipe clamps are the way to go. The cost of the clamp and a section of black pipe are usually less than $20. They’re even less expensive if you know a plumber. Thanks for the post.

Fetish, Was that meant as an understatement. LOL Nice collection. Good video and variety of clamps. Your right you never can have enough. Picking up clamps as you go is how I’ve been adding to my collection. Thanks for sharing your video. I caught your sense of humor hope to see more.
