    I liked the video, music was a good bonus. Actual making and the clamp itself is high quality. Nice!

    I like the use of the hex nut handle for adding more clamping pressure. I think the hex nut type of handle could be adapted to other clamps as well. Just have to be careful not to over-due the clamping torque and bend the clamp body.

    Very smart technique. I particularly like how you set the clearance between moving bar and body.

    Well done!
