    Everything Old is New Again - Pipe Clamp Pads

    I'm sure many of us have had this experience. We "come up" with something only to find that it may have been implanted in our subconscious during a previous experience more than been a case of spontaneous duplicate wizardry. I finally got around to making some better pipe clamp stand/pads a short while back:

    Well, apparently a fellow had a suspiciously similar idea back in 1994 in Wood magazine.

    Be it 2013 or 1994 the pipe clamp pads you gave me work just great.

    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
