Like the other Bessey clamps in my collection this is well made. Acts like a large jaw vice-grip. Instead of taking the few seconds (minutes) to screw down a clamp this is very quick. Just a squeeze and it's done. Another of of these items that makes you ask why they didn't think of this before.
Heavy duty and one is surprised that it isn't made by vice grip. It has that same heavy feel to it. This was added to my K-Body, K-Body Maxis VarioPivot, Clamping Blocks and KliKlamp collection of fine clamps from Bessey.

This is perhaps the best, most versatile hand tool that I have ever owned. I own 4 and will be buying several more. I use this handy vise clamp for gluing, to hold the fence in place for my router table, "ratchet" two warped boards together, hold featherboards to my table saw fence, hold a board to a work surface to cut, sand, route, plane, paint, etc. I also have used the SG8 (without the protective jaw covers) to hold metal together for welding or brazing. This high quality German-made tool is worth every bit of the $50-60 price tag.

I am still amazed that this tool is not for sale in every Home Depot, Lowe's, Sears, Woodcraft or any other wood working tool outlet.

I suggest that this tool be bought in pairs, but one tool alone will be an amazing, very helpful addition to any tool box.

This clamp is pricey, but is superbly manufactured. Though is utilizes the "vise-grip" style clamping mechanism, I found it somewhat difficult to use "one handed". It comes with two pair of plastic slip-on protective jaws for woodworking, or the jaws can be removed if marring is not a factor (welding?). The jaws clamp perfectly parallel, and are capable of tremendous holding power. The 8" width capacity is also a bonus, especially for curved lamination projects. If Norm uses it, how can it be bad?

I kept seeing Norm use this clamp in the New Yankee Workshop, but could never seem to locate one. Finally, I happened to see it on Amazon and bought one. The certainly are not cheap, but it is so good that I am buying additional ones. Assuming you can use it with the bar in the up position, it is a one handed clamp like no other. I don't know how I functioned without it before. Every well equipped shop needs a couple of these at a minimum.

These aren't the cheapest clamps going around by any means, but you ARE buying quality, and you can expect these clamps to last a lifetime. Typical Bessey clamp quality is exhibited here. I use the Supergrips mostly to hold various featherboards to various tools in the wood shop, but have found many other uses for them as well. The 8-inch clamp range also makes them much more versatile and useful for odd glue-up clamping too.

I have owned these for less than 24 hours and I am all ready wondering why I waited so long to buy these. Yes, they are pricey and it stings a little (I bought two of them) but I can tell you these will outlast me. Bessey hit it out of the ballpark when they designed these, and now I know why Norm used them all those years on New Yankee Workshop. They are very easy to adjust and if they are clamping down too tight or too loose for your taste there is a adjustment screw with a locknut that you can loosen and increase or decrease clamping pressure, it works great. As I said I purchased a pair of these and each pair comes with 4 soft jaws, and you only need 2 per clamp so I have 4 extra soft jaws when the first set wears out (if that ever happens) I have 4 more to replace them. THEY ARE HEAVY and almost 10 1/2" long from front to back these are much heavier than a vise-grip you will purchase in a big box store. Like other posts, I still can't figure out why there are not more stores (like a Woodcraft or Rockler) who keep these in their stores I know people including me don't like paying 50 dollars for a clamp, but now that I own 2 of them I understand why they are 50 dollars a pair. I also want everybody to know these clamps are not made in some slave shop factory in China, both pairs I received are crafted in Germany, and from the fit and finish of this tool you can tell. A very high quality tool.

I've had two of these clamps for about a month and they are SO useful. They work well in situations that I've tried to make due with quick-grips in the past, but the SuperGrip's just work so much better. I agree with other reviewers that I don't understand why these aren't in EVERY home improvement store - why is Bessey keeping them a secret???
