    Looks like he is trying to compress a coil spring, "protected" by a 1x6.

    Should his collection of clamps fail, I'm not sure he will be adequately protected.

    Can't figure out his setup, but this I'm sure of. If the clamps are not capable of collapsing the spring, they will offer zero protection if anything fails.

    If it fails, this guy will never be a father, as vital parts and pieces my become missing.

    This might work better for those who can't see the original.

    Pretty sure he should have two spring compressors in use there. Those sliding bar clamps will do nothing for him.

    Picture of one of the tools I inherited. I had assumed these were for compressing springs. There are 3 of them. Would all 3 be used when compressing a spring, or is just 2 sufficient?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Three would be safest, but I have seen two used often.
