THANKS FOR ANY ADVICE .
I have similar problems with SM pricing and shipping to Canada. It should be a simple enough process to make those cauls out of some hardwood (thicker) which can easily withstand 150 F. or aluminum if you have access to the right bandsaw/blade
The suggested ibex clamps are available under the Shopfox brandname. I bought some on Amazon for $20 Canadian.
The extra brace you suggest would help a recurrence but might dampen your tone. Lighter strings?
