Who are these strange fellows?

Unusual Methods of Clamping VI

Another thrilling instalment in the Unusual Methods of Clamping Saga!

This was mending some pirate themed chess pieces, of which I'd managed to break the bases off. I'll admit now, sadly not through hardcore chess playing, The set is really more of an ornament in my room, and I think I dropped a wheel I was carrying on it...

Anyhow, I stuck the bases back on with some industrial strength super glue, and employed this cunning balancing act to hold them in place for the few moments until the glue had fully cured.

Long story short, these guys have returned to pillaging the oceans the ornamental chess set, and we all enjoyed another Unusual Methods of Clamping story! Smiles all round. 

The Carpenter.
