    Another crossbar clamping option. I tried grinding the sides of the anvils and webs off the tops of the small G clamps to see if they could be utilised in the slots, and now they are a bit easier to use. Handy if you can't find the small vice grips. The small G clamps are probably more common.

    I've thought of a better clamping method, so gave it a try last night. Just milled slots in the cross bars to take the small Chinese 5mm wide long nosed vice-grips,- Much easier ! At $5 each these clamps are cheaper and 100x better than most of the plastic rubbish you can buy now. Much more useful !

    Hi Mike, the clamps are just cheap clips from coat hangers, (taken off a long square rod) slotted with an angle grinder, and the rod replaced with 3mm bolts to make them a bit more durable. They are a bit thin, but hold most smaller spruce stock. I mentioned these a while back, and you said you had some ex your wifes' clothes shopping. With your gear you should be able to make something more substantial,- these were only a few dollars for 6 hangers from a $2 shop.
