    One of the top 10 tools in my shop!

    I have 10 of this size. I use them constantly for glue-ups. Really strong clamping pressure!

    Heavy Duty in every way

    Love the deep throat, which was my main reason for purchasing. I use for a hold-down on the drill press, and wherever I need either a lot of strength or a deep bite.
