Just moved into a new house. Used to live in a Townhome with no means
of doing woodworking. Now I have a garage. Not big but enough to do
I have no clamps. What would be a good amount (combanation) to start
I have(or had) a Woodcraft store in my area. I say "had" because
Woodworking stores do not stay long in my area. A Harbour Freight just
opened up and I wonder how long that will stay open.
Get what clamps things within the range most used. For most of us the 25"
is the workhorse, which is why I have more (now) of them than other lengths.
The 50" is great for those things we use 48" worth of ply to construct, but
it's awful damn clumsy when you try to use it to clamp the "average"
Buy short sizes, followed by long sizes, then write for gifts of the
tweeners. Lee Valley's 25/50 set looks real good. Do two.
