A great clamp for the price

A great clamp for the price

1071 days ago by Chuck | 3 comments »

I purchased a set of these bar clamps several years ago. They were inexpensive and have worked very well. I was first introduced to them when taking a class at the CT Valley School of Woodworking. They were all still functional in the school, and I’m sure they get plenty of abuse in the school. They currently list for approximately $25/each for a 48” clamp and offer them in many lengths. The bar clamps are made from extruded aluminum, are reasonably light and give a good am...

VARIOCLIPPIX ?????

VARIOCLIPPIX ?????

Hell of a name, say it 3 times fast if you can. Hey people, I found these clamps at Lowes and have never seen any like them before. I like spring clamp for quick hold of light objects and I have a whole lot of different sized ones. Check these out, one clamp can hold 2 pieces of 1/8th” or hold a one by onto a saw horse. Package says 2” to 4” but the 2” is maximum without extending the arm LOL Actual usage is 2 pieces of paper up to 4 1/4”. At $4.97 each, I reall...

Jet Parallel Clamp

Jet Parallel Clamp

1656 days ago by alaskan79 | 9 comments »

I got a pair of 12” clamps last winter and they are really nice. I was using pipe clamps and was having trouble with my glue ups not staying flush. I was getting a lot of cup and would have to clamp some 2 X 2 on each end to stop it from happening. I got these clamps and now I don’t have that problem. About a month ago I got a pair of 31” because the 12” where a little short for some of my glue ups. I really like them also. Really easy to move the movable jaw on the ba...

A Paean to an American Classic

A Paean to an American Classic

Good everyday tools make everything better. . I have an abundance of Jorgensen 3700 clamps on hand, today I bought some more. I’ve been happily using these same American clamps for decades and I’ve really no idea whether the people involved are being paid well or not, but to this day the quality remains outstanding.. . It does seem there are companies that make a cheaper, poorer copy of this design but I would say to them and you – why bother? Many of my clamps h...

Bessey Customer Service - Credit where it is due

Bessey Customer Service - Credit where it is due

1183 days ago by RobWoodCutter | 19 comments »

Customer Service Last year I bought a bunch of Bessey clamps from one of the big online retailers and several of the K-body’s came pourly package and thus several clamps came in damaged. I contacted them and they sent some replacement parts. About a month ago I purchased some of the longer Bessey’s K-Bodys from the same online retails and they too came with pour packaging and had some damage. The online retailer offered a small credit if I chose to keep them or I could send th...

Excellent Clamps

Excellent Clamps

498 days ago by NiteWalker | 6 comments »

For a long time I’ve been looking for a good 12” clamp for my boxes I build. I’ve been through a few before I tried the Bessey Tradesman clamps, and I wish I had sooner. I tried the regular duty jorgensen 3700 series clamps. Those were ok, but you had to pay extra for clamp pads. But the dealbreaker for me was that the bars flex way too much for a 12” clamp. I also tried the heavy duty jorgensen 3700-HD series clamps. Those are great and have no bar flex at 12”...

Wolfcraft 3681404 One-Handed Ratcheting Band Clamp

Wolfcraft 3681404 One-Handed Ratcheting Band Clamp

274 days ago by OakHill | 3 comments »

The Wolfcraft Ratcheting Band Clamp has become the ‘go-to’ clamp in this shop when doing final glue up on projects requiring ‘all-around’ clamping. With one hand on the clamp handles, the other hand is free to adjust the strap, align the pieces being glued or positioning of corner blocks and strap guide as seen in the photo. By depressing the release button and guiding the strap with one finger you can slowly draw in the strap until the parts are in alignment and the fit is to your sati...

Unhappy with customer service

Unhappy with customer service

973 days ago by JasonWagner | 20 comments »

Update I got my part in the mail today. It was post marked August 24th. So it was sent a week after I told them the first one never showed up. It was also shipped from NY state to my house in PA. Still not thrilled but I got my part and I upgraded the rating to 3-stars. I know people want product reviews, but I feel that this customer service issue is valid. The clamp seems to work OK although the rotating handle is too short and manually pulling the strap out isn’t as easy as i...

Nice accessory

Nice accessory

858 days ago by Tedstor | 6 comments »

Not a whole lot to say about a tool like this. I was looking for a device to hold stuff down on my work bench top. Amazon was selling this one for $10 shipped. I was a bit weary of ordering it since the stock photos made the screw threads look a bit too fine for my taste. However, as the included pic shows, the threads are actually fairly coarse. Nice. Installation is very straight forward. I’m pretty sure the manufacturer intends a 3/8 bolt to be used to attach the clamp to the benc...

You may never need these...

But when there’s a need for ultra deep jaw clamps 12 inches nothing else will work.So, I put off buying these for a long time and sure enough I have a job at hand that needs these. @ 10 a piece you cant beat the price and quality.you could take the pin out and replace it with a handle but I see no need to that.
