When I think of bark lamps I think of a juniper log with some wires running up a hole in the center and a brass harp and a shade….oh no, that’s not it…

Jorgensons, that what I think of. I have two smaller Besseys that I keep just for clamping a sacrificial fence on the ol’ BeastMaster fence. Got ‘em at a garage sale and have never seen them before or since.

But I do keep lots of 3”, 2” and 1” C clamps around. They can do delicate work that even the Besseys don’t. It all depends on the project. Also they don’t project (the other pronunciation) so the lump of wood and iron can be easier to handle.
