Money Clip for big pockets and big stash of cash?
Not sure, wish I could help.

I think they are clamps, though not for money. I’d guess for larger pieces of plywood when you were going to face laminate them. Just my guess.

They are for holding down the tablecloth on your picnic table….. Available at any Dollar Store…Believe me.

And thus, another friendly chat comes to a screeching halt….

That is right- silly me. But maybe I have discovered a second use for the things.

And what would that be?

We just knew you LJs could tell us what they are. Sorry to bring non-woodworking hardware onto the LJ scene, but maybe Donna has a better use for them! Maybe they can be useful in light woodworking clamping too.
Thanks LJs and have a great 4th. It’s too hot here (in cold central Wisconsin) to use them on a 4th picnic with no breeze and 106 degrees! We’ll stay in the air conditioning and eat our Wisconsin brats indoors.

By “Wisconsin Brats” I assume you are referring to sausages, not kids!

We haven’t gotten into cannibalism even though this weather could make one delirious! And yes, we have plenty of bratty Wisconsin kids here too! We’ll be eating our Wisconsin brats (sausages) without any Wisconsin brats (kids) present. (I probably should be more careful about using local, country-hick, jargon!)

We used them in technical drawing
in high school so to me they are woodwork related
Been years since I saw mine.

So, now someone has to try them for light clamping for face gluing flat boards. I think they may actually work within a small range of thicknesses. btw- had brats here in Texas for lunch- along with fried okra, tabouli and watermelon. Doesn’t get much better than that.

They were used in days before CAD to hold drawing paper securely to a drawing board.Jim
