Clamps

Just curious anyone ever used the Trumpeter rubber band clamp, and if so, where in the heck did you get it.  I have looked all over and can't seem to find it.

Never heard of such a thing.  Can you provide a picture of what it looks like?

$58 bucks plus shipping doesn't sound cheap to me.

Amazon prices are ridiculous. You can find them elsewhere cheaper if you try hard enough. I rarely buy anything from Amazon especially at their prices.

I looked all over the Interwebs.  The only place that was a little bit cheaper was AliExpress, and that was only 5 bucks cheaper.  I checked out Stevens Hobby to see if my LHS could order them, nope.  I checked Walthers (believe it or not they have some good tools there), nope.

Try using clothes pins, small clamps from Harbor Freight and small  Dewalt bar clamps from Home Depot. You can clamp just about any odd angle  with a combo of the above listed clamps.

I went to Wal-Mart and bought 100 medium size clothes pins for like $3. I have a couple wood clamps for bigger items. Works great so far.

The Dollar Store is a great source for these too.

I bought a bag (of 100) miniature closepins, about an inch long, from model expo.  I cut the tip back with a saw to eliminate the fishmouth.  They are great little small clamps for restricted areas.
