Clamps make instant tables out of any flat object Answered

The clamps are secretly table legs. Clamp four of them onto a scrap piece of wood and PRESTO! it's a table! A great temporary solution before you put the real legs on, because who wants clamps in their living room?

This is sad, you're all just so wrong! First of all you wouldn't use clamps as legs permanently since what you use for clamps? Secondly it's always lasers with you, I'm telling you smokemachines is what the people really want.

So they're basically pipe clamps with feet attached to the far ends. Cool idea, and a good way to "repurpose" a common shop tool. One presumes these are being sold for a few times the price of regular pipe clamps :-)

The cheaply made single hand clamps made of plastic tend to be fairly inexpensive, even the prices at the place I linked to, can be beat if one visits a discount store. And yeah, basically plastic pipe clamps, on a bar instead, and without the ability to tighten further, once closed.

I have several of those--they are the cheapest (stamped metal) "one hand" clamps on the market ($3 or $4.)

Looks like they're cheaper under the name "Ratchet Bar Clamp," but those are all the ones with plastic handles. I don't see any metal ones. =[

Right--they are usually more expensive. I bought mine at a discount store, but haven't seen that exact type for a while. They do wear out pretty quickly... I took a snap of one--stamped metal; spot welded. The only marking is "China" on the release. They have a certain ugly utilitarian aesthetic appeal... Sorry I couldn't help more (I would think the technology for a visual search engine isn't too far off, but wow--that would have heavy computational overhead.)

I am using a cardboard box as a nightstand because I'm too lazy to go to {Argos|IKEA} and get a proper one- clamps would be a step up :)
