clamps...

Slung all the gear to the south side today.  Had to adjust 3 truss ends then got 16' welded into place.  Clamps are my only assistants - and I only had to pay them once.  30% chance of rain on Saturday.  Gutters won't be ready but I sure could use a sprinkle for a roof rinse and a leak check.  43,68,27,0,B

Clamps are worth their weight in gold when you work alone. And you are correct. They work cheap and usually do a very good job.

What size gutters do you plan to use? It looks like regular house gutters would overflow very quickly with the amount of water that will be coming down that roof.

Looking good.

Lik JLP said, clamps are a great and necessary help when working alone and they don't take coffee breaks.

Keep at it young man and take any rain you can. I can't wait to get back out there and see your accomlishments in person.

John if there is a farmer close by get some baling wire from him .It is the best help you will ever get.I can not count the ways I personally used it.

The only problems with clamps is you can never have enough of them. Seems like I am always buying more and needing more of them.

Clamps are addictive, the more you have the more you want. My collection looks a lot like yours, but my favorites are the 1/2 inch pipe clamps. Length from about one foot to infinity, just keep adding pipe sections.
