Planking chain clamps
I'm an active member of some antique tool collecting clubs. The Midwest Tool Collectors Association (MWTCA) and Early American Industries Association (EAIA) are having a meet at the Deltaville Maritime Museum in Deltaville, VA tomorrow, Saturday April 21, with the them being "boat building." So I'm pretty psyched about that.
I received an e-mail a couple days ago from a person who was looking for "boat planking chain clamps." I had never encountered such a device, and I don't recall seeing anyone mention them or show a picture of something like that here.
So I did a little Googling and discovered what a "boat planking chain clamp" is.
Looks like something a reasonably clever feller could cobble together himself, if a commercially made one is not to be found.
