Make your own tools!

At the 1996 IPMS/USA Nats, I attended a seminar given by IPMS First Vice-President Chuck Davenport in which he detailed how to make some very useful modeling tools. Well, I finally got around to building his clamp design and I must say that I have no idea how I ever coped without them! Chuck has given permission for me to post his instructions so that everyone can benefit from them. I haven't had a need for the other tools yet, but I can see that I might. The pages herein are regular html, but I've included the full page PDF files that you can download and print for full size copies of the diagrams.
