Improving clamp handles ()

Indeed the silicon tape is a great handle wrap and useful for other things as well, like temporarily sealing leaks. But it is pricy. The tape used to wrap your arm after giving blood works too. It is available at any farm store and pharmacy. However, not as durable.

A better solution is different clamps. I fail to see the attraction of these expensive and heavy clamps. They are more inconvenience in every factor of clamp importance. The convenience of going to the clamp rack and grabbing 4 easily adjusted bar clamps in one hand is not to be dismissed. There are advantages to have a clamp assembly that weighs much less than the wood that is bring clamped.
