    IMO that quote is a product of its time. Think roaring 20's, the Great Gatsby, i.e. a time when there were fewer strata in society and delineated much more obviously than today. People were either...

    I didn't know any of this.

    I just thought it was a good deal on clamps and wanted to pass it along for anyone else that might be interested.

    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.

    Jorgensen clamps at Lowes

    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...

    What exactly is the purpose of the secondary hole? Just to provide a place for waste to go?

    This sounds interesting and I will give it a...

    The future is never as romantic (or familiar) as the past.
    I see no less craftsmanship in a CNC than a chisel. It's just a different kind of tool. Frank Klausz would always say if his grandfather...

    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?

    Using it on a jobsite where there is no available power. Of course in this case, you would have to use the dust bag in lieu of a vacuum.

    In case you might ever need the feature, consider that a dedicated track saw will have the ability to plunge cut (safely) in a way that a standard circular saw will not.

    Where do you hold your chisel?

    Specifically when chopping out dovetail waste - where do you grip your chisel?
    I have seen it done up high (handle in fist) and also way down low (in the fingertips).

    I swear by a brand called Intertape 591 double sided flat back paper tape. It has a crepe liner, and it is both strong, and removes cleanly. Amazon sells it and so do other sources.
