Toggle Clamps

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

Toggle clamps are great. I have a couple of them but the only reason I do is because I stumbled upon a price I could not refuse (still not cheap). Being so costly, I’ve yet to fix them permanently on any one jig. Actually, toggle clamps have been around for quite some time and are used commonly in factories because of their fast and repeatable action. Toggles do suffer from needing to be adjusted to varying work piece thicknesses. It is really their fast action that is nice about them.

There are however all sorts of hold down clamping methods that are a lot cheaper. Just bend a flat bar and put a bolt with a knob though it. Just arrange it as a 1st or 2nd class lever, and you have affordable, albeit slow to set, hold downs. Cams are another way though these suffer from a very small work piece thickness range. Another one is to use a wedge which have a larger work piece thickness range but cannot apply large amounts of pressure.

There are lots of less expensive ways.

Riding Breeches

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Riding the horse can be fun. But it is not that comfortable when riding for too long. This is why equestrians have special outfits to make the ride more comfortable. They also have breeches that help them keep their grip on the saddle or help them keep on their horses. The new womens breeches and jeans are also stylish and fashionable and still perform like older riding apparel keeping the rider with a secure grip on the horse.

Baseball Bats

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

There are different sports that children are interested in and one of them is baseball. It may be a sport that they have liked since the first time they saw it or it may be that they are intrigued by the sport but somehow they will try to get into the team in the school. There are also those with teams in their community and join the games during the summer. They have their own personalized baseball bats that may have the logo of the team or their own personal designs. It is a beautiful sight when we see our children enjoying the sport they are playing and also having fun playing with their team mates and rivals.

Movies at Home

Monday, February 6th, 2012

There are times when you just want to stay at home, relax and watch your favorite movies. Some even have movie marathons from time to time and enjoy different types of movies they like while resting. When planning to watch a lot of movies, discount cds are also considered. It would mean getting more discs that can be played for a lower price and more time at home to enjoy watching.

Keeping Warm with Jackets

Monday, November 7th, 2011

A colder season is coming up and we are starting to wear jackets more often to keep warm. The winter season can be really cold and sweaters and down jackets can be helpful in keeping us in a comfortable temperature. These jackets are not just comfortable but also stylish. They are perfect for outdoor activities because they are lightweight and packs easily in a backpack. Jackets keep us warm when skiing and mountain climbing in cold weather but do not restrict much of our movement.

Mobile Home

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

There are many advantages in bringing a mobile home or an RV on vacations. A lot of things can be brought in it and you can even park at the parking area of a stopover to sleep on your own bed. Going to parks and picnic areas is comfortable with the RV. The TV and player can also be brought to keep the kids entertained on a long drive. An additional thing needed will be RV insurance which will help during emergencies or if ever the RV breaks down for some reason. Traveling would be worry-free with the right insurance. There would be less worry and more time to think about what you can do to have fun on vacation.
