Its over now, but the official announcement will not be made until tomorrow. Very much a nail biter! Ill let you all know how it went as soon as i know. I am currently in fourth by 4 votes. Thanks for all of your help!

Papa needs a new set of drills! I am in a bind and in a contest. I am trying to win one of three DeWalt tool sets worth either $600 or $280 from I would love to just be able to go out and buy what I need, but it is just not in the budget. I need help to make it happen, and I want to make it worth your while…

I decided to make a pair of Bernoulli Spiral clamps that work with your bench dog holes, inspired by a much copied (but less often cited) post by Garage Woodworks. The spiral shape means that the harder you try to push something through, the harder they hold. I will be making mine from Richlite, a Phenolic Resin impregnated paper product that is used to make skateboard ramps and Pizza Hut’s pizza peils, among other things.

All I am asking is that you help me out by voting for my 2 videos HERE at You do have to sign up, but all it takes is an email address and creating a password. After voting, leave a comment telling me you voted.

Click the link above, then click Like on the video.

You will need to sign in if you already have an account…

or create one if you haven’t been here before….

Its super easy!!

Make sure to like both videos!

On the 19th, I will randomly choose a helper to win the clamp set.

If you have already voted for me, let me know, and you will be in the running here as well.

On the other hand, Toolselect is a great site to sign up for anyway, with real reviews from real people. Even Matt Vanderlist provides reviews for them. If you have more than that minute to help me, get to know their site. You can earn rewards for reviewing tools yourself!
