Bessey Band Clamp

Review Summary

This is our favorite band clamp. Its handle closely resembles those on Bessey K-Body parallel-jaw clamps and fits our hands perfectly. Its 23'-long nylon band is on of the longest we've seen, and although you might never need all that length, it’s nice to have it available in a tight, easy-to-use reel that never gets in the way. And the metal hasp proves easy to couple and disconnect.
With swiveling jaws that snugly fit 60° to 180° angles, the corner blocks have open “pockets” inside the corners to keep glue squeeze-out from getting on them.

Good for complicated glue ups

Review Summary

I have several of these band type clamps and they have come in real handy in complicated glue ups such as show in their picture for multiple sided projects. I've used this in gluing up chair legs mostly and it was a lot easier and effective than trying to snug a rope around the legs.Bessy did it again with this one, as it's is a real quality band clamp. Every wood shop should have at least a couple of these.
