I was in need of a set of violin top (and back) crack joining clamps and was expecting a cost of about $70 and about two months of shipping lag from China or India.  I was very surprised to find a USA made set on eBay for $55 (including shipping).  I now have them and I like them.  The clamping assemblies are made of nylon or delrin.  The rods are stainless steel and the knurled tightening nuts are aluminum.  It would not have been worth it to make my own for what they cost.

I believe it possible to expand their utility by means of adding an extension rod so that they could be used on a cello.  I have an email in to their maker to see if that is possible and, if so, how much would it cost.
