Topic tags/keywords: clamp

This is quite possibly the most useful clamp I’ve ever had. I wonder if any of you know what it is or where to get one because I’ve only ever been able to find one. I would like to get several more.

Didn’t see one that looks exactly like that one, but some very, very similar in design by doing a google search for “Speed Clamp

If you can determine who made it (mfg mark on the tool?) then you could narrow it down.

It’s a tool designed by a blue ribbon government commission. The original plan was for a handgun, but then the gun control lobby got wind of it and modified the design until it became a caulk gun (but still a “gun”, so win-win), but then the c-clamp PAC started whining, so they came up with a compromise and, well, there you have it.

I figured out what the original maker was at some point. In any
case I think the patent expired and that sort of clamp
is available from several sources now.
