Does anyone know anything about this clamp? It looks very similar to the one Amazon is selling for $60.00 (some slight differences in the t-track edges), but it is selling at HF for $24.99. The HF one is 50” while the Amazon one (from Emerson Tools) is 54”. At $24.99, this would be quite a deal if it is pretty much the same.

probably the difference is quality. i would think (just what i would think) is that the hf one would have less clamping strength and less overall strength while the amazon one would probably be of better quality. just thinking though someone else might have a better argument the other way.

I would say if you are a hobby woodworker and the only one using it I would go with the cheapest one, a contractor with everybody working with it well you know what I mean…I have tools that are not expensive and I take care of them and they last as long as an expensive one

I got that clamp, and it works pretty good, but then I made a jig that allows you to use a circular saw or router and you just lay it on the mark line. The jig is much better than the product, because you have to measure from the cutting edge to the fence.

I have something similar to this… clamp-n-tool guide I think.

I mostly used it as a drill press fence. Worked great for that.
