Tony, Wood Magazine in its September, 2007 issue did a review on the following parallel clamps: Bessey, Gross Stabil, Harbor Freight, Jet, Jorgensen, Stanley and Woodcraft and basically found that there was not a significant difference in overall performance. The Jet clamps were rated as the Top Tool choice while Woodcraft’s were designated as the Top Value choice since there was a ”$7.00 difference per clamp for both 24” and 50” models.

Despite this review I am comfortable with the Bessey line and generally pick them up when they go on sale- especially the 40” and 50” ones.

Hope this helps.
