    C clamp mod

    Not really making a tool so much as making an existing tool better and more versatile
    We've all had to clamp a piece of round stock to a flat surface for one reason or another
    For the easiest way to do this I have found that a small "V" ground or filed into the foot of the c clamp I have made groves in the button but I find that when I absolutely have to use the button end to a round part I normally will take a section of halved pipe and flat bar then weld those together to form a holding surface
    When grooving the foot of a C clamp it needs to be just deep enough to insure the clamp does not slip

    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Many of my clamps have been modded just the same. Just one of those things that make life easier.
