Description

The best ideas are often the simplest, which explains why Jorgenson is well known among woodworkers as the maker of some of the best clamps available, and their 3/4-inch steel bar clamp is no exception. No shop can have too many of these. They offer a basic, reliable design--featuring a crank handle, no holes, no rivets, and no notches--that leaves little room for improvement. These clamps are great for a huge variety of jobs, can be used on any length of pipe your task requires, and can be relied on to keep their grip without loosening up or slipping. Removing the clamps when the job is done is quick and easy every time. Sure, some may say that a clamp is a clamp, and to some extent that's true. But with so many brands on the market, there's a reason it's so hard to find a shop that's not full of Jorgenson clamps. If you're looking for reliable clamps at a price that allows you to buy as many as you need, Jorgensen clamps are tough to beat. [Amazon]

This 3/4" pipe clamp set incorporates standard Acme cut steel threaded screws for a securing hold and final tightening. The tail-stop features a multiple-disc-clutch for fast easy adjustments while holding work securely. Often considered the industry standard for pipe clamps, "Pony" clamps are made in the USA and designed to be used on standard 3/4" black pipe to offer the flexibility of creating any clamping length. Easy to assemble, ideal for woodworking with a wide range of applications from industrial to do-it-yourself type projects. Set include one each head and tail units.

Review Summary

These Pony pipe clamps have been around longer than I've been alive and they have always been the preferred brand to buy among my construction and contractor friends. If you really need to do some heavy duty clamping on larger stock then these are the ones to use. They produce an extraordinary amount of clamping pressure so be careful not to over crank them as they may warp your clamping set up. Their length is only limited to the length of the pipe you mount them on.
Don't bother with the 1/2 inch ones for any heavy duty tasks. These are heavy and can be awkward to use , so you won't want to make these your everyday clamps. They work best for doing large panel glue ups, such as table or work bench tops. Also remember that it is best to mount these on black pipe. The clamp heads are prone to slip on the galvanized.

Best Pipe clamps

Review Summary

I was hooked on these pipe calmps from the first time I had used them. I have used others but these are always my go to when I need to use pipe clamps. I added sure-foot conversion pads from Rockler to provide stability and clamp protection. I have them in various size pipe, 3 foot and 4 foot are used most often, but they are easily converted to longer pipes in minutes.
