Thanks for the sites now I know what I'm going to do today make me up some clamps hardly used them because of the handle bar handles.
On the first website I would try to improve by NOT notching the wooden handle.jdoolitt said:Anyone else build the c-clamp handles from this shopnotes: http://www.woodworkingtips.com/etips/etip030905sn.html ?? Not having a dowel handy, I cutup an old broom and made several of these one afternoon. Easy project - inspired by the cool c-clamps used by Bob and Rick on the show. http://www.routerworkshop.com/Merchandise.html
Finding a chunk of soft rubber in this same size would be even better. Any ideas where something like that could be found?
