    Is that one of these? US Patent: 1,990,820 - Clamping tool I picked one up for a buck here at a yard sale. Just because I didn't know what it was. Plus it was only a dollar.

    Thanks, Rick, - Your's is a good heavy duty version that will pull thicker wire with the leverage of a ratchet socket. The fact that the bolt is not as pretty as it might be, does in no way detract from its functionality !
    Thanks for posting.

    I never gave much thought about needing or wanting one until I watched the video. I can see how handy this would be when working with silicone tubing
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use http://kbs.justoldtrucks.com/

    Congratulations brianhw - your Wire Binding Tool is the Homemade Tool of the Week!

    Some of the simpler homemade tools are the more appreciated ones, and this one certainly qualifies. This is an especially good use of a bicycle wheel wing nut, and the video makes it easy for anyone to reproduce this tool.

    Some nice pics this week: Traveling Steady by olderdan, a Mill Clamp by mars-red, Line Boring Bar Stabilizers by Frank S, a Combustion Chamber Polishing Tool by hemmjo, and a Miniature Boring Head by mars-red.

    brianhw - you'll be receiving a $25 online gift card, in your choice of Amazon, PayPal, Giftrocket, or bitcoin. Please PM me your current email address and gift card choice and I'll get it sent over right away.

    I have made three types of wire binding tools and think this one is the easiest to use and best and uses the least amount of wire. do
    Since making it I have redone about a dozen air line ends that are from 115 to 165 psi. so far no issues and with a rap of tap will not tear your hands up




    I just follow a you tuber on how he made it, it is not pretty but works great. and it was made from an old pair of plies my dad left me that I had in my old tools box. I plan on making a cleaner type one from lamp chain pliers, but wanted to see if the tool was worth the effort.
    this is my version of the clamptite.

    Ed, I notice that you're using TinyPic to store your photos.

    I hope it doesn't spoil your day but if you read their Terms of Use statement, you'll discover that they are owned by PhotoBucket! Given their current gyrations, you may want to rethink them as your storage location.
