Sorry to hear that. But have you tried going down to your local HD and
picking up some Bessey clamps for 40% off (well sort of)? They have a
promo going through the end of the month...spend $100 on any hand tool
(clamps too!) and get a gift card for $40 by mail. Sure you're not
getting cash back or a true $ off but if you are like me you'll
probably spend that amount on shop staples anyway (sand paper, roller
covers, lumber, nuts/bolts, etc).
Hopefully this is a 'silver lining' to your clamp quest. I picked up a
set of k-bodies, and a few small tradesmen clamps.

I thought I got shut out on the Jorgy frenzy but I just received an
email saying that part of my order would be shipped (four 24" clamps).
Sad part is that I've got one more board to glue up on my 25 1/2"
wide workbench. I had plenty of 24" or > clamps to get that far but I
really need more of the longer clamps to finish the job. I already
give HD weekly business on standard supplies so I guess $100 more on
Besseys isn't going to matter. Thanks for passing on the promo info.
Actually, it was, "shit - that was fast."
I wonder how many people know the reference. I just watched it again
on DVD yesterday.

Shamelessly whoring my website since 1999
I called my local store - they said they had several of each size in stock.
They said to be there first thing. I was there at 8:55 am. After picking
up some router bits, Top Coat, and blade cleaner, they told me that the
store "wasn't participating in the clamp sale".
Got back and checked their website - "sorry, we sold out, but here's a 10%
coupon". Just seems like "bait & switch" to me. The email message
notifying us of the sale didn't say "at participating stores" or anything
Yeah, I'm disappointed, and it'll be a while before I trust a Woodcraft
