I begin keeping the things vague, please be patient.
If you want to prepare the mayonnaise, and you well know that most of the times you failed in the past, getting horrendous egg soups instead of a firm alluring substance, the answer is: read the instructions carefully first.
The photos I took in my shop were always horrendous as well, BUT the other day I read the instruction manual for my old camera (obviously I ran into it by mere chance)...and I discovered only now – eight years after the buy – how to get passable pics even if the artificial lighting is dreadful. I post the following project more because of the wish to show you a passable photo reportage from the darkness of my shop then because of the project itself.
My METABO table saw needed some clamps; the original ones are sold for 80 EUR each, the usual option that costs more then the whole car :-).
I clamp the piece of wood to work on the sliding table, and move it without any danger while cutting.
Black locust from my garden; the screws were made out of fresh wood, easier to thread. The capacity is 85 mm, slightly more then the max hight of the blade (smart, isn’t it? think of me while cutting a piece of wood, and discovering later to have cut the clamp too…what a bad day :) ). With little modifications I think they could work fine as bench clamps too.
