That inner tube clamp idea is awesome. I am going to remember that.

It is a neat idea.

But I already have a bunch of the Fastcap 3-way clamps. They’re much cheaper than the Rockler version.

I live in Iowa and Woodsmith has “seminars” in their store on Thurs night in the fall/ winter. Even though I live 125 miles from them, I attend a couple a year. The guys on the show often host or teach the seminar. Don, the guy that is the head guy on the show, is one of the owners of the store, magazine, and show. He was in the store the last time we were there and mentioned that their were going to be several new faces on the show this season. I wanted to ask why, but didn’t. They have a very extensive shop where the magazine is located, where they make the furniture and jigs in the magazine and there are quite a few guys that work in there and occasionally host the seminars too, I assume that the new faces are those folks. All in all, Woodsmith is a good place and very friendly, and I enjoy them. There has been some buying and selling of magazine companies in Des Moines lately….specifically Meredith publishing, I am hoping that it does not effect Woodsmith. (Meredith publishes a bunch of very familar magazines including Better Homes and Garden)

If anyone knows, please post it…..there used to be a guy that worked for Meredith on here…....

Years ago back in the early 1960s I had a friend who was building a home-built airplane. He often used long strips of inner tube cut lengthwise in a spiral around the outer diameter of the inner tube to wrap and bind (like a rubber band) awkward assemblies and pieces while gluing. I was a little wary at first, but it worked very well and bound up everything tightly.

I also thought this was a worthile tip and cut up a tube to have a try.
But my son went berko when he saw his bike.

Absolutely no appreciation of talent, just look at that nice stand I built for him!

I have also seen some new face lately maybe its a new guard as the original guys take a more managerial role.
Check out these young guys.
