I have Jorgenson, Irwin, Bessy, and some other brands of clamps. The Jorgenson clamps outperform the other brands in real work situations by a large margin. I find the Irwin clamps to be so poorly designed as to be very frustrating to use. Bessy has taken something as simple as a clamp and over-designed it and if a little glue gets on them they don't work properly.
The people at Jorgenson know that we don't always get the glue off our clamps and designed them to work well despite that. Jorgensen clamps just adjust faster and tighten better
Just my opinion, Bret
anybody willing to trade their Jorg's for my Irwin's? didn't think so
