You want to talk cheap??  Take your old SS hose clamps that you
have stripped out and throw them in a box until you need some
stainless scraps.  Tin snips will cut some pieces from the old
ones and you won't have to buy anything and you saved
filling up the land fill with old, dead hose clamps--or at least parts
of them.           ;-)
