Bessey VAS-23

Editor test-drive:

Of the seven clamps I tested similar to this one, I prefer the Bessey. Its handle closely resembles those on my Bessey K-Body parallel-jaw clamps and fits my hand perfectly. Its 23'-long nylon band was longest in the test, and although I might never need all that length, it's nice to have it available in a tight, easy-to-use reel that never gets in the way. And the metal hasp proves easy to couple and disconnect. With swiveling jaws that snugly fit 60 to 180 angles, the corner blocks have open "pockets" inside the corners to keep glue squeeze-out from getting on them.

I have one of these clamps and use it when I make picture frames. I prefer it over the pony clamps that I have also. It is well worth the money.
