I saw some Bessy clamps on CL and bought them on an impulse without researching. I got 4-26” clamps and 2-40” clamps along with a Freud 8” stacked dado set. I really don’t need the dado set, but wasn’t gonna turn it down since it looks almost like new.

Are these good clamps? Was $125 a good deal?

LOL no, the guy is looking to move south and wants to get rid a bunch of stuff. He also has a 16.5” delta drill press for $200 and an older grizzly band saw for $125. I believe the drill press is the model that people say has a lot of play in the spindle. And I’m not sure what the band saw is worth.

That was a great deal those clamps can be expensive. Those are the old style handles but still good clamps.

It was a steal. Your local Lowes must have been robbed.

Those clamps are worth around 45-50 bucks each new, so yeah, good deal!

Ridiculous steal. Those are the original Bessey K-Bodies that I eluded to in my comment to your other forum topic. They’re no longer sold as Bessey has the newer Revos.
