Here’s a pair of clamps made in just two hours for a special purpose. Time was saved by cutting and bending the corners at predictable dimensions. A small bar was welded in place to stiffen them.

This forged clamp features a welded frame used to form the claw. Welding in this case is somewhat faster than splitting and drawing out heavier bar stock..

This coat rack features rotating hooks making it possible to place it in a corner or close to a wall and still have all the hooks available. The hooks and legs (shown) are folded flat stock.
