A young girl had not been feeling well and went to her family doctor. "Young lady," the doctor began, "you're pregnant."
"But that can't be. The only men I've been with are nudists, and in our colony we practice sex only with our eyes."
The quick fit to size is what is useful.
C-clamps are pretty useles, except in the smallest sizes.
Dutch has 'lijmklem' for it, lit. glue clamp.
German the intimidating 'Schraubzwinge', lit. Screw Forcer.
French the self-explanatory serre-joint.
This came back to Dutch as 'Sergeant' for a special kind of clamp.
Not in my experience. However, even if in bits
it is still usable.

You talking about "bessey" clamps?? Fantastic for woodworking, but
qyuite a few places where a "bessey" won't work and a C clamp will -
and in some cases a locking plierds like the british "mole" or
American "vise-grips" or Irwin locking pliers are the only REAL
Bessey, of course, makes a wide variety of clamps, in a wide
variety of styles - including F-style and C-style clamps as well
as spring clamps, parallel/case clamps, toggle clamps and handscrews.
Not in my experience.
There is a general western prejudice of long standing,
to the point that first Japanese, now Chinese are inferior products,
cheap imitations of superior Western designs at best.
This was already wrong back in 1940,
Every single one is crap, here's some examples:
Two of them worked once, then refused to charge in any charger, sitting at 0V.
The other two had half the rated capacity.
This guy is advertising 10440 batteries which means they're lithium, except these aren't.
I tested these and got about 700mAh, not the 2300 stamped on the side.
The only batteries you can be sure of are ones made by Panasonic. Even Samsung are only 80% of what they say.
I have a Fuji camera rated at 10MP. I measured it as 2.5MP, it gives you files with 10 million dots, but groups of 4 dots are the same! The orientals make a living by ripping people off.
For the really paranoid who want to destroy data there's nothing like taking the lid off the disk drive and rearranging the sectors with a hammer.
It's not rocket science, you charge them fully using a normal charger. Then you connect them to a bulb that will drain their power in a reasonable length of time (say 5 hours, so you're not diminishing the capacity due to high drain). Put an ammeter in series with the bulb. Observe over 5 hours what current you get on average, and multiply that by the time it lasts. When I test Panasonic batteries, I get bang on what they are rated at within a few %.
My point is 90% Chinese batteries are shite.
Anything unbadged, or saying "Trustfire" or "Ultrafire" or some such thing is not to be touched.
Fujifilm, I thought they were one and the same. They didn't used to have good cameras, this one is 5 years old and the previous similar one was bought 15 years ago. Both gave about a quarter MP of what they stated. The current one is a Finepix S1000fd.
In 1839, the imperial Chinese commissioner Lin Zexu wrote a letter to Queen Victoria warning that, unless the British stopped supplying opium to China, he would cut off rhubarb supplies to Britain, killing everyone through mass constipation.
It is not clear how you determine the point of complete discharge.
It looks like you are risking over discharging the test battery.
I thought you have built yourself a gadget using some of the
battery monitoring IC's and a Rasberry Pi or something like that.
It is also not clear if the light bulb matches the wattage range
the battery is designed for.
In the US at least, there is no Fuji brand camera that I know of.
So if you have a Fuji then it is likely to be a knock-off.
My Fujifilm is not a digital camera and is from further back.
An acquaintance of mine who owned a photo print lab told me
that from his experience at the shop, Fujifilm had the best
zoom lens for a point-and-shoot camera in the price range
that I wanted to spend.
