I hope you stay around long enough wear those clamps out

The early bird gets the worm, BUT it's the second mouse that gets the cheese.
I use the 1 & 2 the most for jigging and such. The difference in using the bigger sizes and C clamps is smaller. I've got a pair of cantilever 6" with a button to release the thread for fast adjustment, but I don't use them much even for wood work, I tend to use the squeeze bar clamps.
I STILL don't understand what happened to the cheap Chinese knockoffs of the Kant-Twist. Most of mine are knockoffs bought decades ago, and can't find any for sale now. The patent is long expired.
On this topic does anyone happen to have a plasma/laser cut file for kant twist clamps?

I've never used one, I hav/had carver clamps but to be honest the things are not cheap, I did have a good collection but no more, I've been looking for a strong alternative, they are available but are they somthing I should go for, my welding shop is somewhat bare at the moment, the new welding sets are in the house!, should power the tree lights!
If anyone is interested in making your own, I have a file of pictures / dwgs. of making a bunch of (I guess I'd call them 2" and 4" maybe) which I have sent to several people on thenet but so far no one has "gotten around to" making any. :-) I made a batch of 6 of the small ones and over several years made probably that many of the larger ones.
Now to see if Photobucket will co-operate and I'll post a couple pictures. :-)
? Maybe :-)
...lew... Guess it worked, (this time) :-)
found a few more:

Wow, those look great Lew! I might have to make myself a few big ones when I get some time. The higher prices of the large ones probably justifies the time & effort of building them.

That is great you guys! dxf works best for me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Although they look pretty simple I really appreciate if either of you share the file!
I remember seeing your clamps before Lew, you must have had a thread on them or mentioned them in the SMT thread.
