clamp shopping

Lol bought 8 more clamps today. Jorgensen medium duty 6" F style at $4.44 each.

I don’t think I’ll ever be done buying clamps. Lol I know my french cleat system on my work bench is going to be full. I think I’ll move most of the stuff from the east wall to the french cleats. Then I think im going to make a new clamp wall hanging system.

I will mention that parallel clamps, long and still longer ones are sooo handy. You can place them on the bench, jaws up, and put a door or a couple of boards you are joining in them. The bars level the wood and the jaws clamp ‘parallel’ so there’s no slippage. If doing rail and stile doors they make things so much easier. Thing is they are tres expensive. I have some two 24", four 48" and two 60". Wish I had more.

Thanks craftsman. I am trying to buy nothing but jorgensen however i did buy bessey at the wood show because the price is right. Illl tell you its not cheap every month im investing in clamps till i get comfortable with how many i have of each size. Then ill move onto the next style. Lol

Everyone thinks that’s just a woodworking saying. Wait till you have three long things to clamp up and have to do them one at a time each day to get them all done so you can simply continue working. You never can have enough clamps. I’ve got some jorgensen parallel camps. I’ve got Bailey and Bessey’s too. The Jorgs are my favorites in the way they grip and the handles on them.
Nice addition!
