Topic tags/keywords: jig clamp origional design

For any who didn’t notice Gary was the award winner for his submission to ‘tips for your shop’ in the Jan/Feb issue of Shop Notes. His entry for the adjustable safety clamp that he posted for us some 160 plus days ago with very exact pictures and video. Of course he told us then that it had been selected for issue 103 of Shop Notes But either didn’t know or neglected to tell us that it was selected as the tip that won the prize for best tip. Can’t think of a more deserving person. Again CONGRATULATIONS.

Thanks, rtb for the heads up. I never would have known since I do not get Shop Notes on a regular basis.

Let me add my heartfelt congratulations as well to GaryK.
