Yippee-Eye-Kay-Yea!!! Santa (me) gave me these 6 new, Made in The USA, Jorgensen Parallel clamps!! (2-24”, 2-36”, & 2-48”). I’m so excited. I actually bought them online from Menards. They had a hell-lay-cious sale on them a few weeks ago. I only wish I would have bought more. Now I can really look forward to making some stuff. I’ll do a review on these when I git round to using em. I can certainly tell that they were made in the USA. Damn (sorry for the explitive), they are fine fine fine, and I am happy happy happy!!

Nice catch – I guess I’ll just have to live with my 1/2” black iron clamping system

Hey John. Thnku. I give you and your family best wishes during this holiday season. Work/Play safe buddy. Dick: I never wanted to pay those high bux for clamps like these, but, I said, I needed to treat myself, especially when I seen the sale on these puppies. After shipping I’ve got 198 bux in all 6 of em, which I think was a super deal. Like I said above, I wish I would have bought a few more of the 24’s at least

I think Santa should spread some of those clamps around instead of taking them all. It is better to give than receive. ha ha

Every once in awhile you should treat yourself. With a good sale like that, it’s hard to pass up.
Have a Merry Christmas Roger.

Nice. Good to see you have the new plastic composite handles. In my opinion, they are more comfortable than the old maple handles.

Roger, I’ll say you are one smart shopper. You got just what the giftee wanted ( how did you know????). Those sure won’t be returned after Christmas!! I recently use some of those that my buddy Tim has and they are top shelf!!!!!!!!!!! I lie you bought them at my favorite store. I did not know you could shop there on line. I may have to do that in Arizona since they have no stored down there.

Have a safe and Merry Christmas, my friend!!!!!!!!...................Cheers, Jim

Nice Rog. That’s the first I’ve seen of their new handles. I’m a big fan of Jorgy’s. Made in ‘merica;-)
