    Hi all

    I bought a set of four F-clamps on eBay a while ago and the plastic pads on them were very loose always falling off. Now they are all lost apart from one out of two pads for one clamp.

    Is there anywhere I can buy those small plastic pads? The size of them doesnt matter too much as I intend to superglue them to the clamp.

    You can use cork, or wood pads and not bother with the plastic ones. I used some 1/4″ ply on my larger clamps glued with construction adhesive and they have held up wonderfully.

    Suggest you file the heads flat, as they often have a weld type line down centre.
    Wood, cork, all will detiriate, break up, better to epoxy thick leather, if yo can’t find thick ( reasonably, not over board ) Go to op shop, buy just about ant type leather, glue together, with leather glue, until you have thickness required, then epoxy that to your clamps, simplist options are often the best, Best of luck Peter
