Feeble Attempts at Humor #10: Pile? Mess? Collection? of Clamps?

06-23-2018 04:29 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Time to lighten the mood a bit. I think the best collective noun to describe clamps would be ‘insufficiency’ ‘I have to add to my insufficiency of clamps.’ ‘I’m adding to my insufficiency of clamps.’

helping another woodworker

03-27-2018 01:36 AM by bladedust | 5 comments »

I met another woodworker who is downsizing and getting rid of his clamps. He’s not having much luck on Craigslist, so I offered to help him out by posting to the Jocks. I hope I’m not overstepping and I hope I am not posting to the wrong area so forgive me if I am and please let me know so i can correct it. That said, here goes: 18 bessey “K” clamps. from 24” – 96” see pics. some minor use, but nearly all of these have never been used. Included ...

Feeble Attempts at Humor #9: Collective for clamps

02-06-2018 12:42 AM by Dave Rutan | 9 comments »

A fleet of ships, a bouquet of flowers, a chain of mountains; I propose that the collective noun for a bunch of clamps should be called an “insufficiency of clamps.”

Make your own - shop aids, tools, jigs #3: Pipe clamps, aluminum pipe?

01-26-2018 01:18 PM by curliejones | 1 comment »

I recently bought a 3/4” pipe clamp at a thrift store that seemed very light considering it was 5 ft long and had Pony cast iron fittings. The pipe intrigued me and I found it to be non-magnetic with an i.d. of 0.87” , an o.d. of 1.04”. I concluded the pipe was Schedule 40 Aluminum. I researched and found almost no info, no one using Aluminum pipe for clamps??? The pipe seemed rigid enough for shop use, but I know it will not equal resistance to flex like iron pipe. –...

Shopmade Luthier Tools #26: A few deep reach clamps

08-10-2017 01:18 AM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

I made one of these as an experiment and I ened up using it in the orchestral repair shop to hold two edges of a violin face crack. I figured it couldn’t hurt to make a few more. Sometimes I have to repair multiple instruments in a day. I made two sizes, 5 in. And 7 in deep with a capacity of 2-1/4 inches. Turns out this is a little small for a full size fiddle, but then most of our violins are 3/4 size and smaller. I’ll make a few larger ones eventually for full size v...

<div> <div>Get your own valid XHTML YouTube embed code</div></div> I am having a lot of trouble getting the video to look right in this blog! It looks wrong here and if you click full screen it looks even worse! If you REALLY want to watch it then it is best to click on the button to see it on YouTube. It looks fine there. Otherwise, well, you get the idea! If anyone knows the RIGHT way to embed videos then I would love it if you would ...

Today's Finds 6Feb2016

02-06-2016 11:06 PM by Dex378 | 3 comments »

I am always on the lookout for tools that I need (and always looking for tools I don’t need). But we all know that everything is so damn expensive these days. I have 4 kids so I can’t afford to run out and buy all my tools new. I try and hit yard sales, garage sales and salvage stores when I can. Most of the tools guys like us use are outdated junk to everyone else. The average homeowner owns a compound miter saw nowadays and wouldn’t know which end of a hand saw cuts the wo...
