Topic tags/keywords: box clamp

Watch the vid to see its versatile functions. If you do assembly (who doesn’t?), look into this product.

Note: I am not associated with the manufacturer in anyway. But I always look for ways to improve my efficiency in the shop—with trick, tips or innovative products.

Great product. But, like most, they are real proud of them.

Let’s hope there’ll be competitive products coming out to bring the prices down! Look at how much the prices of bench cookies (or bench pucks!) have come down and we know, that day (hopefully) will come.

Great product. Thanks for sharing.
The price doesn’t seem so bad when you compare it to a similar product.
The Bessey clamp is $40.00 for one and Woodpecker wants $34.00 for two.

If they would bundle 4 pieces for that price I would get a set.

I think many of that companies’ products are CNC machined aluminum and they are pricing these similarly.
Not the same at all. These are molded plastic. Way cheaper to make.

Has to be priced to the market competition so I would compare a pair of these to one bar or pipe clamp.
They want ~$35 for a pair. I could do the same, admittedly with more hassle, with one bar clamp and a jig.

In fact I have some short lengths of 3” x 3” x 1/2” wall extruded aluminum angle that will, when combined with standard c-clamps, work almost the same. But I work for a fabricator and have access to these things at scrap price, about $1.00 a pair.

These look pretty cool. I am just starting out with woodworking and used pocketholes for my first project. It was probably just my inexperience but I had a tough time lining up the edges with the Kreg right angle clamp. These seem like they would make that a snap. I guess I could have built something, but on the other hand I guess you need something that is known to clamp at a right angle to build all the other right angle things.

These are like everything else. Give it a little time and the price will come down. Right now over priced for me.
I have four HF corner clamps I paid 9.99 ea.(less 20%) for, that are identical to the ones Rockler sells(except color)for 29.95.
