I took the piece I needed and noticed that one of the replacement clamps had a cracked red plastic head.
So, two clamp shipments, both had broken pieces.
The plastic on the new clamps is thin and cheap versus the sturdy plastic used on the old ones. The black plastic jaw covers keep slipping off also - annoying!
The mechanism works just as well - I'd say it was identical to the old, but all in all these are a downgrade from the K body clamps.
Additionally, I like to snug up the clamps before I hang them on my clamp rack so that the movable section doesn't come crashing down on my hand when I remove them; These are the easiest parallel clamps to snug up. I sure wish these weren't so expensive but I love them. More are in my future --
One issue however, is the packing -- when the clamps arrived, the end of the box was destroyed and 2 of the black plastic "retainer" clips were trashed -- not a big deal for me as I remove them anyway - the clamps were otherwise in great shape -- ( I can't imagine too much could happen to these things-- they are tanks)
I like the removable protection pads that slip over the clamp jaws, although I found that some don't fit as snug on the jaws as others. The outer protection pads slip right off the 40" clamp jaws (but fit snug on the 24" jaws). Since I don't do a lot of spreading with my clamps, I just removed them and put them in a drawer. But it is a minor quality control issue. For the price of these clamps, fit and finish should be dead on.
I like the fact that they added the adjustable workpiece contact elements that slide along the clamp bar to protect your workpiece from damage by the serrated bar. But time will tell if they last, as they are plastic and clip on the bar. Upon arrival of my clamps, many of these contact elements were laying in the box forced off the bar due to inadequate packaging.
Okay, now for the negative stuff, and it all has to do with the packaging. I bought a couple of the kits (this one and a kit of 24" and 50" clamps). I had read all the reviews on the poor packaging, took a chance and ordered them anyway. I have to completely agree that Bessey should get it together and improve their packaging of these clamps.Read more ›
Either the Bessey or Jet clamps would have worked for me just fine, but a few minor features made me choose the new K Body REVO clamps over the Jet clamps. The REVO clamp heads / faces are slightly wider and shorter (vs. the narrower but taller Jets). I wanted these mostly for panel glue-ups, so I thought that wider would be better than taller. The plastic work piece support clips seemed more useful (to me) than the included bench dogs with the Jet clamps because I don't have dog holes drilled in my workbench. Finally, I thought the black plastic clamp pads would be useful for glue-ups and thus far they have been. I have not had any trouble with them slipping off or with glue sticking to them. I did coat the steel bar with paste wax to prevent glue from sticking to it.
I totally agree with the other reviewers who complained about the packaging. My clamps and all the plastic clips and end pieces arrived safely with no damage, but it might have been luck. Amazon just put a shipping label on the Bessey cardboard box, and one end was ripped slightly open when it arrived. In fairness to Amazon, I'm not sure that putting the Bessey box inside another box with bubble wrap and padding would really help much though.Read more ›

If you know clamps, the Bessey k bodies are the best. Very useful and convenient. They are absolute brutes. Get the 8" rapid action Bessey clamps as well.Published 20 months ago by GFF

I really like these clamps. They work well and do what I want them to do. Good positive lock up with large jaws.
