Tool King has them for the same price. I’m sure they’re the ultimate clamping experience, but I just can’t justify $47.50 per clamp.

That’s about an average price for those clamps. They are pretty commonly around $90 for the two packs.

A few months ago the two packs of 24 and 40” clamps went on sale for $40-$50 per two pack. That was a good deal.

About the normal price that I’ve seen too. I have a few of these clamps and love them. It’s hard for me to pick these or my Jorgensen cabinet masters as my favorite.

Bessey clamps are a bit pricey up front, but the results that you will get by using them are remarkable. They are easier to use and more precise than pipe clamps, and if well cared for, will last a very long time. I bought mine over time, looking for good deals. Most of those deals I found at The Woodworking Shows from various vendors. Last year I bought 8 18” clamps from Peachtree Woodworking. They usually have a good coupon for use at the show. I also bought some Gross Stabil clamps from Woodpeckers on a close out after Bessey bought Gross Stabil. VERY good clamps too.If you want easier and more precise glue ups, go with parallel jaw clamps. If you go with parallel clamps, IMHO, go with the original, Bessey.
