Default Tubing tool

I think I saw in one of the forums a mention of using a Bar Clamp to make a tubing tool.
Does anyone have pictures or a sketch of a tubing tool using a ratchet type bar clamp?

Default 3/16" tubing tool

This is what I cobbled together just to see if the 3/16" tubing system was going to work for us.

It worked good, we only put in 75, 3/16" taps this year. Will probably get a "real" tool if we decide to put in a larger number of taps next years. Will sure keep this cobbled up unit as a "backup".
