Old Bench Clamp

Another old tool I found in the garage which I haven't used in many years,  Although copies are still produced my many firms, Irwin to name just one (though that one is way overpriced), this is a Record 145 which I think is one of the originals and guessing it could be 35 years old but not sure.

Anyway thought I'd draw it, and include cut away on how it holds down the wood (I used to use it to hold wood for carving), done in 2015 pro with RedSdk.

 I started my millwork apprentice in June 1963 and never seen that particular clamp before. It's a very nice model. Record makes excellent tools.

I remember those. Built one of my first workbenches from bowling alley floor, and installed a few of these. Made life a lot easier. The blue is perfect (at least as per my memory...!). Nice work, no an easy model to build.

Nice model. Brings back some good memories of one I used to use just like that in an old workplace about 30 years ago. Used to call it a bench holdfast. Wish I had one now. Sorry I don't visit the forum much now, but great to see the continuing wonderful gallery creations once in a while. Alan.

Thanks everyone.

Alan, Just had a look at your site and couldn't help but be fascinated by the bedroom with diagonal beam, that must have been a challenge to work out how best to fit the furniture, very nice job.
