This little clamp is useful for clamping small parts for gluing, or just about anything else you want to temporarily hold together. It can be made of spring steel; old leaf springs are a good choice, and 36 will also work provided it is a springy piece.

Paper towels, craft paper or toilet paper are some of the products this paper roll holder can be sized for. The frame is made from x 1 stock with one end split to make the hinge journals and spring. The other end is finished with a loop that fits inside the paper roll. A hinged bracket with another loop features an imbedded rare earth magnet that keeps it in contact with the spring when changing rolls.
