Builder Tip #73 from HomebuiltHELP 
Make your own Hose Clamps
For emergencies or just DIY:
Fabricate Custom Hose Clamps
We all use hose clamps of various sizes throughout our homebuilt project. Examples include: water cooling hoses, rubber fuel and oil lines, and other tubing applications in the aircraft. It is tough to keep an inventory of the "just right size" in stock when you need to install or replace them.

A unique tool is available that allows you to custom fabricate and install a stainless steel wire clamp in just minutes - any size! Watch this week's Tip to see a demonstration of this tool in action. Consider whether this tool and the capability it brings to your workshop is a must have for your toolbox!
