Re: don't all clamps lie flat on a table?

Larry Clinton At Frankfort, (Central) Indiana
By flat I mean the clamping blocks have a square bottom that allows the clamp to be parallel to the surface it is laying on and stand alone in that position, the "bar" is then held over the table by 2 inches or so. As I recall several other oddball aluminum clamps do not do that, nor stand alone. Neither do pipe clamps.

This does allow me to match grain patterns etc., measure to ensure I still have enough length to trim safely.

I have many clamps I have purchased at Estate sales and auctions. Can't say what the brands are, a lot are quite old but still work well.
