Re: greenland paddle class clamps - me too? *PIC*

Ok, finally, seriously cold outside and not doing anything else, for everyone else:

Here's the paddle "clamps", it's basically a 2x4 with a 2x2 screwed and glued to the bottom to form a T, stiffens the top. There are two carriage bolts bolted to the top with a piece of rubber (actually hydrallic) hose slipped over them to cushion the wood. The paddle blank is slipped down between the bolts till it wedges in place, then the end is quick clamped to the "clamp". Then you can easily work on the other end of the paddle and the loom. The legs are optional, can be used in a vice or as I first used them in a Black and Decker Workmate. The legs are nice though.
