Glam Camping with Clamps

There really is a movement called Glam Camping. It's when you go to rough it but really the "rough" is more like soft.  So for those of you who take wine on your camping trips, and don't want to give up your beautiful glassware (really?), now here's this: The Wine Clamp!

These wine clamps are pretty funny to me because I can't imagine hauling a set of glass stemware to a camp site but I really do love clamps. I love that adjustable screw so I might buy one... I'll use it in my backyard though.

You can buy your own wine clamp by clicking the link below: 

Happy Clamping!

Wedding Clamps

There is a great article over at Design Milk on clamp rings designed by Lu-Wei Chen of Taiwan, from the Drilling Lab.

These rings are awesome! 

One of those screws looks like it's gold!

The screws in these clamps have a head on them instead of being countersunk.

Am I crazy for thinking they look sophisticated?

Combinding the tough metal with the soft metal is the perfect harmony. 


The article is awesome too. Be sure to go over to Design Milk and read all about them.

Clamping Down on Books!

Thanks to Bob Vila's website you can hold your books upright with clamps.

These look like GREAT bookshelves - thanks Bob!

Bob also has an informative page that explains all the different types of clamps - Click here for CLAMP INFO.

Let's go Clamping!

I'm a  huge fan of the clamp. 
I get a huge kick out of seeing screws at work. Fasteners are generally hidden, but with clamps they are out in the open. And I like seeing them do their thing. Now check out these tables!

These tables were all made using The Floyd Leg.

Special legs that have clamps.

So you're able to create a table using these legs with almost anything that fits within the clamps.

And they look great!

That adjustable screw on display is so fantastic!

This is our 200th post!

In honor of our 200th post we're posting lots of 200's, starting with some information about Nickel 200.

Have you heard of Nickel 200?

When something is made of Nickel 200 it means it is made of 99% pure commercial nickel. This alloy is highly electrically and thermally conductive. It is magnetic and very resistant to corrosion. And of course you can get fasteners made out of it. Nickel 200 is great for:

  • Food processing equipment
  • Marine and offshore engineering
  • Salt production
  • Caustic handling equipment
  • Manufacture and handling of sodium hydroxide, particularly at temperatures above 300° F
  • Reactors and vessels in which fluorine is generated and reacted with hydrocarbons
I personally have never been asked to quote Nickel 200 so I'm thinking it is not very common. If you've ever used it, let me know!

Next, we're posting a poster of what 200 calories of your favorite nuts look like. It's awesome and informative (like us!) and it's about nuts so we're sharing it. Found it at the DailyBurn.com.

Have you seen the Bicentennial Quarter? Also known as the Drummer Quarter, it was minted to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the US.

And LASTLY, check out how to hang a 200 lbs picture or mirror on the wall without a stud!

You actually don't need any fasteners for this one but we thought it was cool, although I have no idea if it actually works.

Anyways, Happy 200th to us!
