  • Bicycle seat clamps...

    ...are cheap and really handy:

    That's the clamping system for the table on my 12" disc sander project.

    More info here:

    The clamps were like $3 off ebay. That's the table for the sander they're resting on. I set the guide slot up to match the HF tool grinder so I can exchange the tooling.

    I have three of the same clamps still in the bag! I thought they'd come in handy someday.

    Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

    It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

      Nice job on that project Bob, you are way more energetic than I am. I can't even seem to get the projects done, and I almost never take pictures, much less put together a web page with all that good stuff...

      Your table looks a lot like my 7" Baldor Grinder tool support table upgrade "thing". Like yours, it has a notch (to fit my wheels) and tilts down 45* while maintaining safe clearance to the surface. It's a smaller version than yours, table about 4" x 5", and made from some scrap 1/2" thick 4x4 angle iron. But my fasteners are not nearly so "neat", just a captured bolt and long nut with a tommy bar...

        I work on a LOT of bicycles, and pick up many for parts, always grab any usefull little part on them.

        Those clamps come in pretty handy, when I built the tumbler for the 9x20 I used one of those as the lock for it, works like a champ.
        Those things have a surprising amount of grip in them.

        Also, when my shift motor went out on my explorer transfer case, I used a shifter from a bicycle to keep it going long enough to find another one, then picked up a manual t-case and got rid of the whole electronic headache anyway.

          Neat idea. I wonder if they have them at Wal-Mart.

          Make it fit.

            Don't know about Wallyworld, but a quick check on EvilBay at shows 147 of them at $2.99 each. Nope, I have no connection with the seller. <VBG> I'm going to check the local bike shop this weekend to see what his price is, but I would be surprised if he can beat the online price.
