Who are these strange fellows?

My photo
Manbench Industries; Purveyors of general mayhem since 1994, a blog to follow the crazed, possibly deranged projects and emotive musings, of an undergraduate engineer, and an apprentice organ builder who have always felt they were born in the wrong age. Follow us as we, re-write history, learn lost skills, discover strange new worlds, break things, rant at things, mend things, make new things and generally find ways of passing the day instead of doing "proper work" !

Unusual Methods Of Clamping IV

Ok, so technically this is a photo from work, but its too great an example of clamping (a topic we love here at MBI) to pass up....

Sometimes when things are a real awkward shape, in this case a complex hollow taper, you just need millions and millions of clamps to keep the things from flopping about all over the place.
Hence why every workshop should have as many clamps as possible, as you never know when you're going to need them all!

TIP_OF_THE_DAY-  Buy a few whenever you see them for sale, i'll guarantee they'll save your ass at some point!
