Woodworking Clamps Tips
Of all the woodworking clamps, I've tried most types. In the picture below, the clamp with the red handle (made in Germany) did not last very long. They are hard to tighten. When you try to loosen, the red handle spins. It does not loosen the clamp. They are a waste of time and money.
The C-clamps are okay. They take time to open and/or close. C-clamps have limited reach. After I tried the Bessey sliding clamp (middle), I quit using C-clamps.
Nearly all of the other woodworking clamps I tried had major flaws. They did NOT keep anything square. Do NOT waste your money on the hype!
The following woodworking clamps deliver on their promise.
Bessey Sliding Arm Clamp
I make NO commission on Bessey Clamps for woodworking. I tried many clamps, and Bessey's Clamps are the best.
Regular C-Clamps do not have the reach that you frequently need. Also, they are slow to open and tighten. The Bessey Sliding Arm Clamp is far easier to use, and is a lot quicker. It gives you better pressure and reach than most bar clamps or C-Clamps. This is by far the best clamp for tight or small places.
You won't go wrong with this clamp! You can buy this clamp at a good price on the Clamps Auction Page!
Bessey K-Body Clamps
I prefer the Bessey K-Body clamps for all of my projects. I have several in 24", 40" and 50" sizes.
"No other clamp does what a K Body does."
Frequently, you can find this clamp at a good price on the Clamps Auction Page. Good luck!
