I needed some special sized clamps for a project with building a charango (looks like a 8 string guitar).
Iron clamps would not Work for this project (to heavy) because the wood they have to clamp on is 2 mm thick.

So i made this 2 clamps out of a old table leg from my granddad’s 50+ years old table.
They came out realy functional and i like the idea of finaly have a good functional idea with a old table leg there have been in my Family more than half-a-Century.

You will see the charango (guitar) when it is finished. It is about 80% done right now.
