    Thanks, I got the clamp, now I just need to find LW feathers. :p This is the main reason I asked is because all I was finding was RW.

    20 years ago it was the other way around. Left wing ws most common. I guess most places sold all their left wings and after hoarding the right wings they have decided to sell them now. Keep looking. You can find LW.
