    They have out done themselves!

    Just when I though I had seen it all

    B&D new clamp

    Just had to share this one.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    HUH?, you mean you are not going to try to figure out how to install an actuator on your Bessey's, Stu?

    I've see them. Look handy for when working alone. They are $8.95 at our local Lowe's, $7.95 at an independent small discount store.

    One of the reviewers said the same thing Frank. But he said it took 5 minutes and some few seconds for the thing to move the screw from one extreme to the other! He changed his mind

    I've glanced at these at the store long enough to see they were cheap, plastic, and flimsy. I also got the impression they had about the same clamping power as a thin rubber band.

    Must be nice to have a store that stock tools. Even if it is junk.

    I was just at the BORG picking up some odds and ends. Went down the finish isle looking for Spar Varnish and Lacquer. Well they have one brand of Spar Varnish. Nothing but Deft Brushing lacquer. So frustrating!!
