Okay These aren’t cheap but they are a HUGE improvement of the F style Bar clamps I’ve always used. They make glueing up table tops, and cabinets a dream. Large wooden handles give plenty of gripping power.I love em and plan to get more….once my wallet recovers from my Initial bunch.

HF Aluminum bar clamp

HF Aluminum bar clamp

01-27-2014 05:03 PM by gamygeezer | 28 comments »

Heat wave yesterday! All the way up to 57F! So I decided to go shopping. I rinsed off the sawdust, trimmed the ear hair, unclogged the sink and cranked up the old DRam. I went to Harbor Freight to check on the locking casters reviewed recently, but really had to browse the whole store. I found a rack of aluminum bar clamps almost exactly like the ones I really like from Jorgensen. Had to get one (or so) of course. I picked the “36 inch”, a handy size, which actually has o...

Harbor Freight 3/4" Pipe Clamp with Base

Harbor Freight 3/4" Pipe Clamp with Base

05-18-2011 04:00 PM by zindel | 12 comments »

about a week ago i needed to pick up some bar clamps to handle a larger project that I was fixing up. I started off at Ace hardware because i knew i needed the pipe and thought i would check the prices of the clamps…and wow they were $17 big ones, and for 2 of them that means $34 + $22 for the pipes…no thanks. So i pulled out the good old phone and looked on HF to see their price…$9.99 on sale plus these have a base which is a bonus if you ask me. I have used them for a few ...

Jorgensen 36 in parallel bar clamp

Jorgensen 36 in parallel bar clamp

04-05-2010 05:09 PM by kosta | 15 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review on the jorgensen 36 in parallel bar clamp. I got two of these clamps about 4 weeks ago. There are a lot of different brands that sell parallel bar clamps and I use jet and jorgensen parallel bar clamps. To move the head of the clamp back you lift up the handle and pull back. The handle is wood and is very easy to grip. These clamps have a lot of pressure so you never have to worry about not having enough clamping pressure when you are gluing up a...

I have never spent any real money on clamps and now that I have I now regret not doing it sooner. I dropped the coin to get some Bessey Revo clamps and cant believe how much I like them. So much I wanted to share. Here is a short video review. http://youtu.be/J4KMRo0bdVs

The Harbor Freight way of jump starting your clamp collection

The Harbor Freight way of jump starting your clamp collection

12-11-2013 03:17 AM by paxorion | 45 comments »

When I first began dabbling in woodworking, I had zero clamps and high aspirations. Stocking up on the well F-style Harbor Freight clamps seemed like a good idea. For months, I impulsively made trips to HF and picked up one HF F-style bar clamp (using a 20% off coupon) and 1 freebie per trip. Fast forward 2 years, and I now have 10×6”, 6×12”, 2×18” and 2×24”. Overall impression is that the HF F-style clamp was the most inexpensive way of jump st...

A clamp like no other.

It is a very old saw that one cannot have too many regular clamps. At work for instance I run about 40 of the Jorgensen 3700 series and still wish I had more at times. Yet it is the specialty clamps that we have that sometimes get you out of a jamb or simply make life a whole lot easier. To that end I have spring clamps, band clamps, little tiny C-clamps and a host of others that step up only when that seems the way to work. I’m sure you all have them too. One of my specialty tool...

Quick Release Clamps:  Jorgensen vs. Harbor Freight

Quick Release Clamps: Jorgensen vs. Harbor Freight

08-25-2013 09:34 PM by SirFatty | 44 comments »

I recently purchased some Harbor Freight clamps that are still on sale, “12 clamps, “18 clamps and “36 clamps (the picture shows the 36” as yellow, but they are blue in the store). Decided to go with these because, quite honestly, they look almost exactly like Jorgensen clamps. The main difference, besides the cost, is the plastic/rubberized grip versus the Jorgensen’s hardwood. Although the castings are a bit rough, there’s no doubt where the Harbor F...

I was using these clamps today and thought to myself that I have never seen a review of these clamps on LJ. These are my favorite clamps for gluing up panels (like table tops or chair bottoms). What you see in this picture will be a chair bottom by the end of the day. When you tighten these clamps you are applying pressure to the edges and the sides. This does a great job of keeping the boards aligned. I particularly like these clamps when I am making something that is too big to ...

Great addition to any woodshop

Great addition to any woodshop

03-11-2012 01:22 AM by hate2sand | 7 comments »

I have several mechanics vices around my shop in various sizes but have always relied on clamps for woodworking projects. Tireing of this practice, I decided to look at woodworkers vices. I don’t use a true woodworker’s type workbench and rely on my table saw outfeed table as a general work area, so I wanted to mount the wood vice in the end of that table. After some internet research I decided on the Wilton 79A Pivot Jaw vice and ordered one on-line from Tyler Tool. The vice was shippe...
