Default Bandsaw mod

Made this mod up ages ago, it allows me to put 5 lengths of 12mm round in the saw at once, the clamp lines up the steel in the right position before I put it in the vise. I use two clamps and just slide the one closest to the saw back each time. I get the steel cut to 2 metres at the steel supply which makes it easier to handle than the full length. Very handy when you want to cut up to a hundred pieces
And as usual no matter what I try it is the wrong way round.
