Arvan,

You will get more, I promise. Especially if you hang around this forum.

Funny that there is a thread on clamps, lol. I went to pay off my Lowes bill and the wife had asked the Lowes Manager about looking up some dog play pens on her computer. Well where the computer was, there was clamps. So I was standing and looking and I found these for $19.98 ea. and got a Military discount. They were a 4 pack of 12" and 6" clamps.


I couldn't pass it up.

Wow, this post got a lot of hits!
I have an assortment of 40 clamps. Much of my stuff was old when I got it. I look at some of the pictures you post with all the new tools and I'm very envious.

It is not how many you have, it is how you use them.

how many?


I have never run short of clamps...
I have run short of hands, however. I could use a few more hands on occasion for large glue ups.

I use the 3/4" pipe with couplers to make longer than 6 footers, or to make more clamps under 6 ft from shorter ones.

These are just a few of mine, and yes, I need a better system......


So I made a wall rack: http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f2/cl...ter-way-72833/


The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Talking

I will eventually get a bunch more. I am in the process of getting more wood working tools, so I can create some saw dust.

Not enough - really ! Several times recently I've had to do a job in two phases for lack of clamps. Birthday coming up - hope LOML takes the hints...

Photos are always a good way to show what you have built. They inspire others to do the same or customize a project to meet their needs.

Thanks,
Eric
