WOOD magazine review

Good, solid-holding band clamp

Review Summary

This unit uses a textured tensioning screw/handle that works great for tightening the nylon band and pulling together almost any assembly. It uses 90° molded plastic blocks to hold the band away from corners where glue squeeze-out might soak into it, yet you don't lose any accuracy or clamping ability. But they don't work with corners other than 90°. The locking cams can sometimes be tough to snug up and loosen. Overall, though, this unit is made well and operates nicely.

Review Summary

What can I say, I like then so much that I went out and got a second one. They work great. I find having the corners helps a lot when tightening band.
