Took a trip up to Washington to see family and friends. In my hometown is a Bi-Mart. My parents rave about it. We went in and I found Bessey bar clamps for a great deal. 2 1/2” 36” bar clamps for $10.59, 24” for under $10 and 18” and 12” for under $8 a each. If you are near a Bi-Mart in Washington Oregon or Idaho I would recommend you check them out. They have all kinds of things in there too.

I have been a Bi-Mart member since the place came into existence. I think I still have my original little green hand typed card from 40 years ago or so.
Here in Texas it does me no good since they don’t have a web store, but I always enjoy going into one of the stores when I go home.

They are a chain of stores in Washington Oregon and a few in Idaho. It is pretty much one stop for everything.

We just had one open up about 25 miles away. $5.00 life time membership. Seem to open in towns under 30,000 population for the most part where they don’t have a Costco close by. A PNW chain.

I grew up in Eugene OR. where the chain began so have been shopping there all my life. They Just opened one up about 25 miles away (Same store as Pete but from different directions) and I am very happy, my trips to walmart are down to about every two months. Their prices are a little higher but the staff is friendly the isles are wide and the quality of the merchadise is good none of which can you say about our local walmart.

Talking about inexpensive clamps,We don’t have Bi-Mart up here,I just bought a clamp set from HD,they are IRWIN Quick-Grip 2×12”,2×6” quick grip plus 4 spring clamps all for $32,I just love the Irwin clamps they feel solid in my hands and the quality is above average.if you buy these clamps individually,you’ll pay $40 or so more for the same number of clamps.
Now I can honestly say,I finally have enough clamps…..of course if you believe that you must also believe in Santa
