Nice job. I made a tool just like this years ago but I made the collar so it could be removed and the clamp used for it's original purpose.  I just welded a piece in the bottom of the collar, drilled a hole in it and drilled and tapped a hole in the pad of the clamp.  I could then bolt the collar to the clamp when I needed a spring compressor.

Never realized that C-clamps are that versatile. A few simple mods and it's a whole new tool!
