Never heard of them and when I did a search it just took me to the Irwin site. Do you have a picture you can post to see what they look like?

By the way, welcome.

the Irwin Quick Grip Pipe Clamp looks very similar and would probably be just as good
i couldn't find a dealer for this in Australia either

Power Press Clamps

I also have two power press clamps and want to buy a couple more. I have checked woodworker supply stores in the Portland, Oregon area and cannot find them.

Because of the color on the clamps I assumed they were Irwin but I don't believe that is the case.

I agree that they are the easiest and most versatile clamps to use and ought to be more readily available.

I did find the Irwin site and the power press clamps were made by them. They are no longer being manufactured as "Power Press" but now as "Quick-Grip but with same feature (adjusting either clamp bracket along the entire length of the pipe-no need for threaded pipe) Here is the link to the page on their site. http://www.irwin.com/irwin/consumer/jhtml/detail.jhtml?prodId=IrwinProd100032

and a link to the Online dealers page, sorry no Australian dealers though.

While it is true that you do not need threaded pipe, you will find that the clamping mechanism is still limited to working from the end of the pipe.
