Lee Valley Squeezer/Spreader Clamp
This clamp is notable for its robust construction and unique design. Capable of applying up to 700 lb of force, it has cast aluminum jaws, a 1/4" x 3/4" steel bar and a heavy-duty mechanism.
The moving jaw advances with one hand and has a spring-loaded face that is canted slightly so its top touches first as the jaw closes. As pressure is applied, the spring compresses to make this face parallel to the fixed face for even force distribution. The fixed jaw has a wing knob for quick conversion into a spreader.
Both jaw faces have non-marring, glue-resistant pads. The clutch operates with a simple lever release. Throat depth is 3-1/4"; maximum opening listed below.
An outstanding new version of this style of clamp.
