Four years ago I walked into a Big Lots store and found two 60” Bailey cabinet (parallel) clamps for $10 each. The next week four 48” ones for the same price. I wish they had had more.

Last year a salvage place in town had 28 bessey 12” bar clamps mis-marked as 99 cents instead of $9.99. The little tagging machine that puts the orange price tags on them was set wrong. I brought them up to the counter and they scanned right through, $28 for 28 clamps. The 8” ones were correctly labeled as $8.99 and the 24” ones as $14.99. Right place/right time.
