They are called tradesman for a reason.

Review Summary

A few years back I bought a set of these from Grizzly. Up to that point I hand a few Jorgensen's and some off brand Chinese ones that were marginal. I probably use these in my shop more than any other clamps I own simply because they work and are light an easier to maneuver around compared to pipe and parallel clamps. These clamps rock compared to any other light to medium duty clamp on the market.
The bar isn't flat like others , but kind of u shaped for greater strength than most or all other brands. The screw rods on these are more like an acme thread ( heavier duty, thicker, etc) that results in quicker tightening action. They clamping force won't match that of a pipe or parallel clamp but for most light to medium duty tasks they are sufficient. These have been the choice of cabinet shops and tradesman for as long as I can remember. There are of course cheaper by the set and one cannot have to many clamps.
