Major Clamp Score!
As part of my preparation to acquire a scroll saw, I knew I would need to get hold of some clamps, which can be expensive. I typed "Clamps" into Craigslist, and literally the first post that came up was an offer of 32 clamps for $45, mostly of exactly the type I was looking for! There were 9 2" clamps, 9 1-1/2" clamps, plus 6 of these guys and 8 of these guys (only turquoise instead of orange, and with a more flat grippy part). Plus the guy was super nice! Now I just need to find an equally crazy deal on some mini bar clamps and I should be set.

Nice deal on the clamps. For this kind of work, those are much nicer than my collection of OLD C-clamps.
Now, just go and get that scroll saw and as you get scrolling, you can determine what else you need.

You sure fell on you feet with that buy.
I have a large collection of clamps, some from my Grandfather and some new, and still find myself needing more for some projects.
Keep your eyes out for another bargain as you can never have to many clamps.
