    What a bargain!

    By  EdO

    About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

    Pros

    • Easy to Use

    Cons

    • Flimsy

    Best Uses

    • Wood Glue Ups

    Comments about Bessey 12" F- Style Clamp :

    The size is perfect for most glue ups. However, when torquing down for glue squeeze out and straightening out minor board warp the clamp assembly tends to twist and lean. Recommend using board thicknesses of 1/2" or less to minimize torque requirements.

    Comments about Bessey 12" F- Style Clamp :

    I use it when gluing up small pieces to turn on my lathe. Works great building ribbon boxes. Holds firmly and doesn't take up a lot of space. Better than the ratchet type clamps. I should have bought more at the price I paid for them (under $10.00)

    Great Clamp

    • Easy to Use

    Cons

    Best Uses

    • Minor Projects

    Comments about Bessey 12" F- Style Clamp :

    This is a great clamp for the price and Woodcraft has the best price around. I used these to laminate the sections of my workbench top, but have found it to be the "go-to" clamp in my shop.

    Poor Quality Control

    By  Tool Builder

    from Whidbey Island, WA

    About Me Professional

    Pros

    • Easy to Use
    • Good Brake
    • Good Grip
    • Heavy Bar

    Cons

    • Screw Misaligned

    Best Uses

    • General Clamping

    Comments about Bessey 12" F- Style Clamp :

    A high percentage of these clamps have screws that don't line up with the bar, something you expect from cut rate brands but not from Bessey. The ones I didn't send back are good medium duty clamps but I'm not sure buying them is worth the hassle of having to return half of them.
