Vinyl is easy..don't know how much you have to do or repair.Make sure you get the pliers if you need to repair/replace a top piece.That's one profession a person can get into for probably $100 or less(minus the cost of scaffolding,ladders,etc.I've done a few houses.
Your answer to the tools guess:
No..the right one is one I made up and I needed for furniture making.I couldn't find anyone around here that sold the right "wood" items I needed and I couldn't cut my own pieces because the "bullet"(or beef) wood I was using was so dense it was burning up the factory made bits before it barely got the job done.So I made this up and it worked great for its purpose.I don't think I can be more clear about it than telling you what it's for...
The left one I figured the 10 thumbscrews were worth the $1 I paid for it.Because of it's base with the ability to clamp it horizontal to a table,vertical to a table,or 45 degrees to a table..I'm thinking it's some kind of universal clamping system..however..I don't know what I'd clamp in there..I really don't think it's something someone bought as much as something someone made for a specific purpose.I just haven't figured out what the h#ll someone would clamp in it needing all the spikes...
Maybe it's a premeasuring device
