Hi Alio, 'fraid you're out of luck! Unless you can find some on EBay.
Miskin Models is no more 🤔 Defunkt in 2014.

You can get them from the USA
https://www.micromark.com/mini-hand-tools/clamps?page=3
Part SKU:60926. $20.95. They are on back order at present.
Neat idea using a fine screw attached to the red knob which pushes a plate to hold the plank.
If you can't wait then two bits of wood, one the same thickness as the plank, and a fine screw would do the same. If you drill a fine hole in the former a drawing pin would be just as good.
I like the bulldog clips with a paper clip(?) idea as there is no need to drill holes, brilliant!


Live long and prosper

I agree with KMBCSecretary. I have a biscuit tin full with all sizes of Bulldog clips, they are readily available and are not priced up in the sky like some small tools sold for specific hobbies. if you find the grip to be too tight just bend them with a pair of pliers, I am making HMS Alfred Admiralty style and have not had any issues. Good luck. Get the micro-marks catalogue, you will find all kinds of treasures!! Have a super day. Mark.
