Great show, had a comment or 2.
I think you guys had it backwards, 88 is the new 90.
Also, regarding the clamp question. I have had good luck using the H/F 1/2 pipe clamps. And as for pipe, to a metal recycler. Saved a lot of money. Also, if you get an 80″ pipe, use it, then you could cut it down and have 2 40″ pipe clamps.

Guys,

I have also been very impressed with Lie-Nielsen customer service. The first time I got a return phone call from Deneb I was floored!

PS. I agree too…we pay for it, but Lie-Nielsen product quality is #1as well.

A little late to the show, but just so you know the current Harbor Freight f-style clamps are awesome. The rubberized handles are easy to grip and they exert plenty of clamping pressure. Check em out, they’re super cheap so it will be an expensive experiment.
