I’ve have a recent disappointing experience with Bessey pipe clamps; of the four bought one had a slipping clutch and two others had skewed threading in the head casting. Those two had jaws that wouldn’t align with the feet flat on the table. That’s aside from casting flaws & voids. They came in cardboard boxes, rather than the clear plastic packaging, but from a reputable dealer. I replaced them with Pony 50’s for slightly higher price, but Ponys are head and shoulders above Bessey quality wise. Sad, I have a dozen of the original Bessey parallel clamps that I love.
