Bessey Tradesman Bar Clamp

Average reader rating
out of 5


Maximum safety with the integrated anti-slip system. A set screw that is molded into the sliding arm interlocks with the serration on the rail to prevent the clamp from slipping.

Corrugated malleable cast iron fixed jaw and sliding arm generate powerful, rigid clamping. Top jaw is press fitted to the rail. No mechanical fasteners to loosen. Powder coating protects against corrosion.

The BESSEY profiled rail from their own German steel plant has been optimized for clamps. The profile acts as a reliable reinforcement against torsional forces, while the serration on six faces additionally prevents the clamp from slipping.

The smooth running spindle with Acme thread allows for more clamping with less effort. Replaceable pressure plates can be easily changed without tools.
With the TG series you have the choice of the tried-and-true wooden handle or the 2K composite handle with a comfort insert. Replaceable pressure pads come standard with 2K handle.

Love deep throat !

Review Summary

These Bessey medium duty deep throat clamps are really built well and hefty. Not sure why they even call them medium duty. It seems like I'm running into more and more situations where I needed a deeper throat clamp so I bought these and have not been disappointed. I've acquired three of them so far and they have been real life savers. Not sure why it took me so long to obtain them. Every wood shop should have at least two or three of these.
I like the newer rubbery handles that Bessey is putting on all or most of their clamps now. You really do get more clamping force with them compared to wood or plastic handles. These " Medium" duty clamps come in 4 1/2, 5 and 7 inch depth
