Continuing our woodworking adventures into Alabama, we arrive at the home of Woodcraft Magazine senior editor, Joe Hurst-Wajszczuk to cover his 20′ x 22′ interior garage space morphing into an extreme workshop makeover. The 2011 October/ November Issue #43 of Woodcraft Magazine features a special topic on this floor to ceiling, wall to wall transformation with detailed projects, providing instruction on turning any garage, basement or outside structure into a viable workshop. Joe is tasked with converting his 20′ x 20′ two-car attached garage into an organized, fully functioning, safe workshop. The “BEFORE” photo below will give you an idea of what Joe started with. If the clutter and disorganization looks similar to your work area, then perhaps this information may help you build a workshop makeover too.
Not the best, not the worst
These are lite duty clamps, They bend under more than lite pressure. I supplement them with my old, but trustworthy pipe clamps. My wife gave me a set for Christmas. Right out of the box, several wouldn't grab under even the smallest pressure. They are cheaply made, not what I expected from Bessey. One plus - the rubber pads are of good quality. If you're considering investing in clamps, buy half as many, but of a higher quality.
Verry handy size
Handy size works verry good
Faster than C clamps
Good basic woodworking clamp. Faster adjusting than C clamps. Strong and good quality. Adjustment tends to stick sometimes and needs to be smacked on a workbench or something to bring it into submission. I own about a dozen of these and will buy more when they go on sale.
