Good day

First I would like to ask if there is a possibility to post 640×480 pictures. When I post 640×480, part of the picture is missing because of the narrow page and I have to resize them to 530×398 and it’s killing me…I have to copy from Photobucket to the PC, resize and re-load to Photobucket.

I have those cheap Quick grip clamps and, as expected, after some time I got 2 problems:
1. The jaw was not holding but sliding back
2. The plastic pin (hinge) housing braking

I solved both problems and it was so good that I made it on all my clamps, even the good ones.
I also improved the grip of the plastic pad.

To the pictures

Regards
niki
