Topic tags/keywords: clamp

I was just killing some time wondering around at Home Depot yesterday evening when I came across what I thought was a pretty good deal on some clamps – YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY – RIGHT? Anyway, this set of 2 18” 2 12” and then 4 little clamps all for only $25.00. Just thought I would clue in all of you guys that still need to put in a hint or two about Christmas gifts from the family.

This is a great set of clamps. I think they dropped the price on those as it got closer to christmas last year to $20. Several of my family members gave them to me. They were MUCH appreciated. I keep trying to get someone to give me some bessey K-Body’s though…That’s a tough sell :)

I hear you on the pocket screw jig. I have been wanting the big Kreg kit that currently sells for about $140. I keep thinking, eventually the price will come down some on this kit. Unfortunately, it has been at that same price for a year and I don’t see any indication that it will come down. That said, I asked for one for Christmas.

these are great clamps for jigs and holding parts for machining applications (drilling, cutting) they are quite and easy to readjust

thanks for the post

I got one of these sets, too—can’t beat the price. I thought i saw a set of Irwin clamps at Lowe’s of only 2 12” for like $20. You have to get them at that price when you see em!

Based on what I see on Amazon, this is a most excellent deal!

I need to run to town, see if the canadian Home Depot has the same offer ! I bought some Red cheapies at Princess Auto, I like using the quick grip now. I’m to cheap to buy the Irwins. (On a grandpa’s buget thing).lol

This is a nice set, and worth the price, but they’re pretty light duty.

Another good deal, I just picked up some 12’’ Quick-Grip SL300 Clamps (medium duty) from my local Rockler store for $12.99 each.

My Rockler has two good clamp deals going.

They have 31” REVOs on sale for something not so interesting like $40, which is not much of a savings compared to the $44 regular price BUT, if you buy a pair, they give you a $25 gift card. That makes it $28.50 a clamp, which is very good.

The other deal is they have a package of two 48” and two, I think 24”, aluminum bar clamps in a box for $77

I use those clamps all the time for things that just need to be held in place quickly. They are not very strong, but then most of the time you don’t need a lot of clamping pressure.

I think I have seen them at HD all year long at $25 for that set. They are just more prominently displayed with the other XMAS deals.

For those of us who don’t have a Home Depot close by, their online clamp deal is for
2 – 12” Quick Clamps
2 – 6” Quick Clamps
2 – 2” Handi Clamps
2 – 2” Spring Clamps
For $24.97
Still not a bad deal.
They’ll give you free shipping if your order totals $249. You could buy a whole lot of clamps to get that free shipping!
