I need some wire for my welder so off to the welding store I go.:cool:
When I get there I am greeted by the salesman saying You are the 'old retired coot' I have been looking for?:mad:
Kind a caught me off guard!

Long story short there was a man that came in with a milk case of old C clamps. He told them to sell them to the first old retired man that wanted them, a dollar a piece! :D
I got 6- 12" clamps, 6- 8" clamps, 6- 5" clamps 20- 4" clamps, and milk case all for $38.00. Cleaned them all up and there's nothing wrong with them, I was the First Old retired man that had come!:thumbsup::thumbsup:

Sounds like a super deal. Those older C-clamps were well made.

Are they made in the USA? If so then you got a real deal.

the 12's and 8's or welding clamps withe the copper coated screw and the others are wood working ones, good strong clamps but the screws are not coated! For a dollar apiece, if I only use them once when i need them is still a good bye!:)
