Engineer Finds Clamps From 10 Years Ago

San Diego -- Area engineer Ed Van Halen, 48, found his work area unsuitable for the work he had outlined this week on combustion. Looking for well vented lab areas, a lab he had used ten years ago was vacant.
 He cleaned it up and looked at the area where the equipment was to be set up. Some scaffolding was needed. The fiberglass rods needed were inside the vented space. But where were the clamps to assemble them? He found the clamps in a cabinet underneath.

"These are my clamps! There were my initials on the box!"

No box of clamps has ever survived undisturbed more than five years. Someone will always find them and "borrow" some clamps till the box is thrown out.
