VINTAGE JUDD SPEED CLAMPS

Today it's an old tool from my workbench...
It's an old pair of Judd Speed Clamps.
Cast iron and built to last multiple lifetimes.
I like how they used all their available space to put their name on it.
Speed!
Clamp...
I actually like these and use these a lot as they really work well.
Patent applied for... I wonder if they ever got it.   Every guy who makes stuff should have a few clamps laying around.....   They're vintage gear for guys!

1970's FLIP ALARM CLOCK BY KEN TECH

Today it's a cool item from the past...
It's a classic Flip Clock  Alarm clock from the late 1970's.  It's currently in my son's room and he loves it.
The cool thing about these clocks is they were only used for a short amount of time... They're very dated so you know exactly when they were around.
It's by Ken-Tech of Japan.   I found this still wrapped in plastic and never used.  Even the cord was still wrapped up.   It's just plain cool.   
If you find one of these, get it.   It's just fun to have around because it's just so dated, but still is cool and it will tell you the time too!
