    I encounter both of these situations once in a while, and what I have used is a small drill bit mounted in a Dremel flex shaft. It will get into very tight spaces. If you had to do it often, then...

    Personally I think your plan will work just fine, at least as well as the YT guy's project, probably stronger because of the bigger dowels. I think it would take an enormous amount of leverage to...

    Get some cinder blocks or bricks and raise the bench up, incrementally if you must, until you find the height that is comfortable for you. Guidelines are great, but I think the right answer is...

    Brian,
    Thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable story replete with a lot of blasts from the past.

    Thank you for your attitude.
    It's easy and costs nothing to complain and criticize. It takes effort to find the positive in things and to keep a grasp of the "overall scheme of things".

    Well I never saw the traditional 6" Jorgys for $3.66 each new. I recall them being closer to $10 each. These are much higher quality than HF bar clamps. I'd love to see a deal on the 12" versions.

    Hi,
    I don't quite know what the story is with the orange Jorgensen bar clamps. At one point I heard the century old company went out of business. Then I heard a Chinese company bought them and...

    If the pins are on the horizontal, then wouldn't the tails then be on the sides?
    And since the pins are wedge shaped, if the case were lifted by the top, how would it pull apart?
