Question

Looking for Miniature C-Clamps


I am starting to get my materials together for a possible winter project and one of the items I'll need are some miniature C-Clamps. They need to be scale-looking, metal, functional, approximately 1-inch in total length, with a 3/8 to 1/2 inch opening. I think I've figured out how to make them if needed, but was wondering if anyone might know of a source for them, like maybe used in a diorama, etc. All of my Google searches turn up small regular C-clamps, much too big for my purposes.

Thanks!

Nope. That got set aside after the arrival of a son in late April. He's now sleeping through the night (mostly) and with summer winding down, I'm looking forward to getting back into the shop periodically with several irons in the fire.

Seem to remember some sold by a large scale model railroader supply.
I'll look around to see if I can find them.

Horizon Hobby, 5/8" mini clamp, #ZON37215, $2.75ea. Doll house furnishings also list some, but they appear to be non working. Just curious, what are you going to use them for?

Top Secret - but here's what I'm aiming for, at about 1/6 scale.

I would love to explore the mcmaster Carr site, but its not compatible with my smart phone. Impossible to navigate .. I think the 1" all metal clamps in Knot's link are the way to go, cheap n easy.
