Description

Jorgensen Handscrews hold tightly over broad areas, providing greater reach and a wider distribution of pressure than other clamps. The angle between the jaws can be adjusted to fit the work. The jaws hold odd shapes easily, are capable of overlapping, and provide protection against marring of finished surfaces. The versatility of Jorgensen handscrews also allows for specific, concentrated clamping pressure where required. Jorgensen handscrews are fast and easy to apply and remove.

Jaws - Seasoned hard maple, selected straight grain; properly oiled and individually inspected, finished and tested.

Spindles and nuts - Cold-drawn steel with special double-lead threads; machined for quick adjustment, strength and durability.

Handles - Seasoned hardwood; designed for comfort and assembled with heavy-duty steel ferrules.

Can't have a wood shop without them!

Review Summary

I find these to be so useful! I clamp them to my bench and use them as a stop when planing stock. You can clamp wedge-shaped items because you can open the jaws at an angle to each other. Pivot the jaws to use just the tip to reach into an area. And you can exert a LOT of pressure when needed because you can tighten just one handle- the other screw acts as a pivot point (fulcrum) so it magnifies your efforts. I've got a variety of sizes for different sizes of jobs.
I fully expect them to last my lifetime and probably my grandkids.
