I have an old c-clamp with that kind of thumb screw and
it is one of my favorites. Those are very nice.

I’ve got two stearn clamps; they’re the two between the jorgs and the HFs. These use a spring lever to sit in the notches along the bar and uses a crank handle to tighten things down. Very strong and powerful, I frequently do a search for them and have only seen one pair come up on ebay and sell for 140.00 each which is too rich for my taste. Even living neat Syracuse where the company was doesn’t seem to effect the ability to find the nicer ones.
The company is really well known for their saw sharpening vises and jigs from what I’ve seen scouring the internets.
