I saw an old flaring tool clamp on a flea market table for 1.00. It gave me an idea for a V-block clamp. After disassembling and comparing to an existing clamp and the v-block I marked the material to be removed and took it to the belt sander. Here is the result. I would venture to say that it is much stronger than the original clamp even with the material removed. I have since seen several flairing tool clamps at garage sales and flea markets.
Here is a second clamp made for another larger v-block I picked up at a garage sale. The notch in the clamp was cut on the mill with a key way cutter.
