A-Clamp Story

I saw this A-Clamp the other day, and was reminded of it’s story. See this A-Clamp (grip clip, spring clamp) ran away from home and was adopted by others, and came back home to me. If you look you can see some writing on the side.

So this was probably back in the 1999 or so era, I had some basic production supplies, I got some clamps from the hardware store and put my name on them. As these things go, after a job with several different people some of your stuff ends up in other’s kits.

I just wrote my name on the side in Sharpie a simple “Ferguson”. This was the start of the little clamp’s Orange County, California adventure.

Now I don’t know what order it all happened in - but C.B. got added to it, for Craig “Burnie” Burns. Now Burnie’s Grip & Electric. Then RA was put on it, for a local (now gone) grip and electric rental company, named after RA the Egyptian God of Sun and Light.

Then you go to the other side and there is a bar-code from my good friends at Video Resources, which is where I think I found it. I am working on a project for VR I grab a clamp off of the string and I thought “what the heck”? This was mine a while ago. Well it boomeranged back to me! 

I think it is funny. Just imagine you were a cattle rustler in the old West and you found a cow with 4 brands on it! It has been clamped on a desktop letter box of mine for years now and I thought it was an amusing story.
