    Low quality bars

    Comments about Bessey 18" F- Style Clamp :

    I bought a half dozen of these a couple months ago and I've used them fewer than 5 times. All of them have large areas where they fail to grab the bar, so when they are tightened they simply slip out. Meanwhile, the harbor freight F clamps I bought at the same time and have been used on the exact same projects continue to hold. That's a low bar, and these aren't clearing it.

    Comments about Bessey 18" F- Style Clamp :

    I bought a bunch of these on sale. I've had three of them fail, and the grips are small and not so pleasant when tightening a bunch. I wish I'd stuck a crowbar in my wallet and bought all Professional Tradesman series clamps...those are "the bomb".

    These clamps work great, the feedback and response when applying pressure to face frame joints, picture frames or when gluing stringed instrument assemblies makes them a very virsitle tool.
