I am a pretty advanced cabinet maker in addition to being a versatile remodeler.

I own 22 of these DuoKlamp clamps in various sizes plus about 50 Bessey parallel clamps and have been using them since 2007. I also own at least 100 clamps of approximately 20 other types.

These DuoKlamps clamps are my "go to" clamps for general clamping use. With one hand you can hold your parts together and clamp with the other. I like these clamps because they hold securely, have moveable pads, and are durable. Since 2007 I have only broken one which is pretty admirable service. Something went out in the ratcheting linkage. I did not bother taking it apart to do failure analysis because I am busy and it was the only one that failed, I really abuse these clamps; the worst treatment I give them is when I clamp them as hard as possible and then grab the handle and twist the joint with the clamp. In spite of my abusive use, these clamps have held up well. I have dropped them numerous times and I really whale on them when tightening them. I use both the short reach and long reach sides and I use them for spreading as well as clamping. These clamps have plenty of holding power. If I do not care about marring the service of my material, I can use a screw-type clamp to apply more force.

If you do welding then I would recommend an all steel clamp to hold up to the heat and the spatter of welding. (you should not be using clamps with plastic pads for welding).

I find these clamps much easier to use than my Irwin clamps.

Without any reservation, I can recommend these clamps.

In my custom furniture making business, I reach for this clamp at the outset of almost every glue-up process. It is genuinely easy to operate one-handed (while I hold my workpieces together with my other hand) and generates a very effective clamping pressure. The plastic clamping pads allow me to forgo the use of separate wooden blocks to protect workpiece surfaces. I am a huge fan of this particular clamp (and I have LOTS of clamps. I believe in the adage that one can never have too many clamps.) A great investment!

I own a number of these clamps both 12" and 24" and find them quite handy and useful. Within the last two weeks,the trigger on two of the 24" clamps have broken, rendering these clamps useless.

Easy one hand operation and lots of clamping pressure, much more than the pistol grip competitor. The jaws are versatile, and switch from clamp to spread with the turn of a dial. I've had six of these for several years with no durability problems, and I use them for everything indoors and out. My 12 inch ones get the most use.

I am a big fan of Bessey quality and have a good-sized collection of K Clamps and F Clamps. I was a bit reluctant to buy some medium-duty clamps like these, as I've been disappointed in other brands' medium-duty clamp. Well, I'm very pleased with the DuoKlamp. I use them more-and-more as I've learned just how strong they are. They are a pleasure to engage, either clamping or spreading.

Great value, IMHO.

I have had good luck with the 12" version of these clamps, so I asked for a couple of the 24" version for my birthday. They have noticeably less clamping power than I am accustomed to with the smaller ones and are not up to the challenge of common tasks. I should have gotten the Irwin clamps.

I started in life as a carpenter-served a 4 year apprenticeship and then spent a dozen years working as a journeyman, before I left the trade. That was in the late 80's. Since then, I have become a fairly accomplished furniture builder, using a combination of hand and power tools.

I have a number of clamps, ranging from Bessey to Jorgies and all types, including parallel, F-style, handscrew, etc. The DuoKlamp is one of my favorites (I have 5 of them). They're light enough to be put in place with one hand and stout enough to do the do (I've used them for about 4 years). One comment I would like to make about clamps and clamp pressure-clamps are to hold your work piece in place while the pieces are fastened or while the glue dries. If gluing a flat panel, using a sprung joint, the gap may be about 1/32" and virtually any clamp will close that gap. Clamps are not made as a solution for poor joinery! Yes, you may pull the joint together, but it will be under stress, that within a year or two of seasonal temperature/humidity changes, either the joint will fail, or splits will occur somewhere on the wood.

The only quibble I have about these clamps is that they are pricey in today's market.

I bought this to spread the rails of outdoor sling chairs. Replacing the nylon cloth on my chairs requires stretching the new cloth enough to insert tension bars. The post attached to the squeeze lever tore on the second chair. The unit probably would be OK as a clamp for gluing and such, but it is not up to stretching the nylon fabric of a sling chair.
