Description

An excellent strength-to-weight ratio makes these strong, light-weight aluminum bar clamps perfect for both commercial and do-it-yourself applications. Anodized aluminum bars are rust-resistant and conveniently notched at one-inch increments to allow easy pre-positioning of the tail-stops. Rectangular design makes for a stable clamping surface for edge gluing.

Bar - 1-5/8" X 13/16" extruded aluminum, U-shaped channel, anodized and notched on 1" centers.
Castings - Light-weight aluminum alloy and malleable and/or ductile iron; powder coated orange finish.
Screw - 1/2" diameter smoothly cut Acme threads; steel sliding-pin handle.
Tail-stop - Trigger-spring type.

Great clamps, premium price

Review Summary

Lengths: 24", 36", 48", 60", 72" Price range: $41–$81 Pony Tool Co., 312-666-0640, ponytools.com These Chicago-made clamps scored highest in fit and finish, with smooth, polished components and no sharp edges or corners. Their bars sit 3/8" higher above the benchtop than the Dubuque Universal clamps, and even though the tail-jaw notches are located 1" apart, the head has greater travel than the Dubuques to offset the difference.
This model achieves greater clamping force, but you have to watch that the bar doesn’t flex and cant the jaws.
