The minies are mini.  Me, if I could swing it at all, I'd get the better clamps first, and take care of them.

I think I paid $30 apiece for my 4 600-pound clamps.  They're probably 18" total.  I had the lighter versions of the Quik Grips before these, and these 600's are SOO much nicer.

  I just went to Home Depot and bought metal 3 1/2 clamps with the plastic tips. I can clamp two molds at a time and they work well. I use two clamps per mold.

After watching one of "That Guy Skimpy" videos where he was using a table top bench Vise I went out and bought  one like this:

Now I have 3 !   Haven't used a clamp since!

I've been using the Irwin Clamps and they work fine.

Would these work?

  Those are the cheap ones. If you go with Irwin go with the heavy duty ones. Should be a silver color

Looks like the one I use. It holds 2-3  molds at a time. Horizontally so you can use it only on molds where the spruce is on the long side.
