      corner-clamps

      on David's bridge thread i saw something new. (for me)

      corner-clamps.

      today i got a package through Amazon.

      $7.75 per unit including postage around half the globe.

      my excuses for not building anything get less and less...

      Just be careful of chasing price.  Go too low and they're probably made out of low-grade Chineseium

      I had quite a few - they are intended for making picture frames square but work on most corners.

      Oh yea Korm, blame me, go ahead and blame me!

       

      Just kidding. Back when I was barely making ends meet, on the rare occasion when I had a few bucks of disposable income, I would go wander around the local mom and pop hardware store and see if I could find any useful tools. Over the years I have collected most of what I think I need to build most of what I want to build. Good thing too, because the mom and pop hardware store is becoming a thing of the past.

       

      So now Korm, you can glue up 90 degree corners. So I guess its time for you to dust off the building project you had in mind a decade ago, and start working out the plans on how to build it. I kid, because I planned on having a more complete railroad then I do now, 5 years after I started. I started in 2003. So I am quite a few years behind schedule.

      in my case, there was too much time spent on my other hobby - volunteer firefighter.

      and now, since that is history, i'm really busy catching up with all the small repairs in house and generalstore.

      and, i can't deny any more, that age makes me slower. the metalic age, you know...

      silver on the head, gold in the mouth and lead in the bottom.
