Marching ahead with the “What's in the Bag” series, we now get to talk about the less oft thought of bits of kit that sometimes save the day. Yes folks, today we are going to discuss plastic spring clamps. I found a nice collection of various sized clamps at the local hardware store. It really doesn't matter where you get them, just get them.
How May I Help You?
Spring clamps are a solution waiting for a problem to solve. Keeping a few general purpose tools on hand can really save the day, or at least make it go a little bit smoother. Here are some of the more typical applications for spring clamps.
