This Tradesman Professional Series Bar Clamp has a 12" clamping capacity, 1" x 5/16" rail size, 4" throat depth, and nominal clamping pressure of 880 pounds. The Bessey® Integrated Anti-Slip System with a set screw that is molded into the sliding arm that interlocks with the serration on the rail to prevent the clamp from slipping. The corrugated malleable cast iron fixed jaw and sliding arm generate powerful, rigid clamping force. Top jaws are fitted to the rail with no mechanical fasteners to loosen up over time while the powder coating protects against corrosion. Then the high quality rail from Bessey's own German factories. The profile acts as a reliable reinforcement against torsional forces, while the serration on six faces additionally prevents the clamp from slipping. Smooth running spindle with Acme thread provides more clamping with less effort. Finally the pressure plates can be easily changed without tools.

Continuing our woodworking adventures into Alabama, we arrive at the home of Woodcraft Magazine senior editor, Joe Hurst-Wajszczuk to cover his 20′ x 22′ interior garage space morphing into an extreme workshop makeover. The 2011 October/ November Issue #43 of Woodcraft Magazine features a special topic on this floor to ceiling, wall to wall transformation with detailed projects, providing instruction on turning any garage, basement or outside structure into a viable workshop. Joe is tasked with converting his 20′ x 20′ two-car attached garage into an organized, fully functioning, safe workshop. The “BEFORE” photo below will give you an idea of what Joe started with. If the clutter and disorganization looks similar to your work area, then perhaps this information may help you build a workshop makeover too.
