I think I am a stereo pecker. ;~) Looooooooooooooooong a go I typed "good
enough". My son is about 90 words per minute. He has indicated that he has
never seen any one type as fast as me using only 2 left fingers and my right
thumb and right 2 fingers. I'd probably type with my left thumb if it were
normal length. An alteration I made on it 20 years ago left it short. ;~)
When I glue something up in the field that requires this kind of
clamping, I actually level my "table" on the sawhorses by carefully
leveling the material I am using for a top.
This cuts out most of the problems.
99% of my clamping takes place in the shop, the TS top typically is the
flattest surface and therefore is my glue up table. :)
On topic, but ... next to irrelevant:
My set of four Jets arrived today -- 2 @ 24", 2 @ 40"
The latest special "Tools & Shops" issue of FWW put them at #1 --
above Bessey, Jorgensen, and all other comers.
The description of some parallel clamps (I think they were Blessy)
in one of the woodworking catalogs says that the adjustable end is
tilted 1.5 degrees. Probably so that pressure equalizes along the
face of the clamp when it is drawn tight.
