There are couple of stuff I need to get at Home Depot, might as well get some clamps.

It comes with:

(2) 2”/51 mm HANDI-CLAMP

(2) 12” Mini One-Handed Bar Clamps

(2) 6” Mini One-Handed Bar Clamps

(2) 2” Resin Spring Clamps

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Pro:

-Great Set Deal than individual buy.

Con:

-For some reason, the left end jaw is not flat,straight. I don’t know if I got from a bad batch.

$25 for the set.

You are right Steven, they are really inexpensive but handy.
I bought 3 sets of these. Great to temporarily attach a jig to the bench, a tool on a cart…

A wise mentor once told me ‘you can never have too many clamps!!!’.............he also told me…....... ‘you don’t have enough clamps!!!!’

I like the one-handed clamps sold under the Masterforce brand at Menards (also used to be sold under the Wolfcraft label – maybe still are). Their big advantage is a second ratcheting lever to open the clamp – no release to pop with your thumb and have the clamp spring open – you have complete control. I don’t think they exert as much force as the Irwins, but IMO they are much handier. I have several small ones that I use mostly to secure things to jigs, saw fence, etc.

Just purchased this set yesterday. I don’t know why anyone would spend $20 on the two piece 6” clamps set, when this set is right above it for only $5 more. A great buy and those clamps are really strong

Pricing makes no sense, which is why I have bought two sets. Lowes has sets for sale too, but they don’t include the 2 12” clamps which is the main reason this set is so attractive

Have your say...
