Great clamp for larger glue-up projects like frames and cabinets. It will hold two identical pieces about 4 inches wide. Strong feature of this tool is that it can also handle two pieces of different widths but you then trade off the size of one side to accomodate the other. My only complaint is that you can't work with pieces much smaller than a foot in length if you want to clamp several corners at once. The clamps interfere with each other. Also, it comes with a plastic piece attached to the screw/guide bar that allows you to hang the clamp on a peg board hook. Careful with it, though, because it's easily broken. Otherwise, a good solid clamp, best if you use four at one time on larger pieces.

I have tried several things for a solution to the "one person assembly problem" on casework. I bought a couple of these Bessey clamps to try to assist in keeping casework square while I dry-fitted parts during assembly. They work fine, and it's a real plus that they can deal with materials of different thicknesses being joined together. These are typical Bessey quality -- nice, precise. I compared them on the shelf to a similar product made by Columbian, but the Columbian was much heavier and had a cheap cast metal look about it. It didn't seem as precise as the Bessey.

My one complaint is that, as one other reviewer pointed out, they don't apply pressure to force the pieces to "meet." Imagine having another person holding your pieces but simply holding them perfectly square, not pressing them together. Of course, this "press" is easily accomplished with another clamp or two.

By the way, Jet makes some corner clamps of a completely different design, and this Bessey product blows that stuff away. The Bessey is easier to handle, doesn't mark the surface, and just generally better.

You won't go wrong with this well-made Bessey product!

The Bessey angle clamp requires that you align all edges and provide pressure -- all simultaneously -- while you tighten the one clamping handle. It is less convenient than corner clamps with two separate clamping handles to tighten separately. Their large surface area provides solid alignment, even if it also makes these clamps more appropriate for larger tasks (e.g., over one foot per side).

This clamp is nice to use. I found it to be a little akward getting the boards aligned, but once in place the 90 degree angle is fixed and that was very helpful. I've used standard bar clamps, wooden clamps and strap clamps to mend various frames and i found this to be the best so far at clamping a true 90 degree angle.

I've got one of these, and a Kreg right-angle clamp of a different design. I thought I'd try one of each to see which one would be more useful. While both are good clamps and have a place in the shop, I'll be buying more of the Bessey clamps.

I recently assembled a bookshelf built from sheet goods, and this clamp worked very well for holding the shelf to the side of the case while I drove pocket-hole screws in place. One big advantage this clamp has is that it can clamp both a right-angle AND a T-joint such as a shelf on the interior (as opposed to the ends) of the cabinet.

No, it does not apply clamping pressure to the joint but for simple case construction using pocket-hole screws, it will hold the parts in alignment while the screws are driven, and that is a huge help.

I have used other corner type clamps and the Bessey works similar, but the quality of the materials and heft of these clamps made holding perfect miter joints a breeze. The heavy slick finish on the casting helps keep the clamps free of glue buildup. I would buy these again.

Hard to believe that Bessey could make anything less than a 5 star rating, but this one qualifies. It does HOLD the wood parts together, BUT it does NOT pull them together into tight contact. Good ONLY if you are using screws to pull the pieces together. Not good for gluing. Installing dowels does NOT pull the joint together.
Wasted my hard earned money.

This clamp is great for corner clamping! It is strong and is obviously built to survive a lot of punishment. Great for clamping heavy-duty stock together. The only limitations that I found with it are:
* Limited capacity when dealing with T-joints.
* It is quite heavy (is that really a limitation?)
