I don't have enough need to plan on getting them, but these are cool:I'm partial to Debuque Clampworks Universal clamps
90% of my clamps are Jorgenson bar clamps. I have a few pipe clamps for really long (over 4 foot) clamping that don't get used that often. I have around 25- 6", 15-24" and a dozen or so 36". I can handle any clamping situation with these. I know some guys love the parallel clamps but I always found them pricey and never had a need for them as I usually use cauls or other operations to insure flat/square glue ups. I do have a few Bessey band clamps that rarely get used but are nice when I need to glue up something funky. If you are just getting started I would started off with a few 6",24" and 2 or so 36" decent quality bar clamps. It should handle 90% of what you need.Hello,
I have a very small collection of mostly plastic clamps and I'm looking to add some pipe or parallel clamps for longer clamping. Any suggestions of brands that make good quality clamps of these variety and don't break the bank?
