Purchased at an estate sale in North Carolina. Previous owner was known to make frequent trips to Thailand. So far, I cannot find any information on this type of clamp. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I have a bar clamp that looks a little like this one. I purchased a tool box full of tools. The carpenter died around 1950 and most of the tools are made between 1870-1910. Most tradesmen made their own wooden tools. I have a nice collection of Swedish hand tools and some American. I'm a steel and Wood person ,no plastics.

Wooden bar clamps like this one were commonly made by the carpenters who used them. It is unlikely to have been mass produced.

Alden Watson illustrates several types in his book on country furniture.
