Again a big thanks to Klaus for this idea. My son said he can’t wait to use his new Box Clamps. We didn’t have any washers so we were going to make wooden ones like the ones I made for my clamps but he said he didn’t think we needed them so we left them out. I gave him a length of strap leftover from my clamps and now he is all set.
I made the box in the photo to hold his new dremel jig that DoubleDD inspired me to make. Seems I’m always making two of everything! LOL!

Thanks again Klaus for your idea and inspiration. Klaus has a plan for his clamps on his page. Here is a link to his page if you are interested in making a set of these great box clamps!

Great job Tony.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

It’s a nice looking set Tony. I think many Lj’s are taking advantage of Klaus on these. They’re a real winner.
With that said, I think you left out the washers on purpose just to have one up on your son. LOL.
Now we have to get him to build a box and post it. Is he on LJ’s ? I think he has a nicer shop than both of us.
