Well I think this is a gloat, I was clamping up some timber and found my set of sash clamps were too small

I looked up where I could get some and was about to go shopping, when I has a brainwave,I wonder if my woodworking buddy Wally has any?
A bit about Wally, he is 95 YO fit as a fiddle and has a house full of woodworking and metal working machinery. however he doesnt use them any more and wants to sell everything.
So I gave him a call and as luck would have it he was home and after a bit of explaining just what I wanted he said he had some.
He is only about 500m away but by the time I got there he had two out and ready, I said I needed another three and he found three more, total cost $125, Bargain.

-- Regards Robert

Long clamps can be pretty dang useful ! I obtained several Jourgesons a couple years ago and have only used them twice, but those 2 times they saved my bacon!

One is 8’ long (yes you read that correct, it’s EIGHT FEET long! ) and the other 2 are 6’ long. They came from an old cabinet shop.

Rob, i’d say it was Wally to the rescue. Better look around for more needs in your shop.
