Clamp features SumoGrip handles for comfort, bench dogs for stability, and I-beam construction for durability. View larger.
A Precision-Rule Measurement System along the rails helps provide consistently accurate results.
Including a deeper-than-standard throat and wide jaws, this versatile parallel clamp set is designed to handle your toughest woodworking projects. The Precision-Rule Measurement System featured along the rails offers you consistent setups and an exact reading on your openings--a unique feature other clamps fail to provide.
What's more, the moveable, reversible jaws can be dual-purposed as spreaders, and the Slide-Glide trigger locks the jaws into place, allowing for smooth movement. Also, the moveable rail stand adds convenience and accuracy to both clamping and spreading operations.
Ergonomically Designed for Easy Operation
This Jet Parallel Clamp Set features ergonomic construction that's designed to work for you--not the other way around. The clamps' soft SumoGrip handles are comfortable to hold, and they help you get maximum torque. The clamps do not take much strength to manipulate, yet they can clamp up to 1,000 pounds of pressure. In addition, each Acme-threaded handle easily turns while applying continuous pressure.
Built for Durability and Convenience
This clamping kit is built to see you through all of your projects. Featuring a durable aluminum design, superior I-beam construction, and a fully-plated rigid backbone to prevent corrosion, the clamps are built for long-lasting use. Additionally, a non-marring composite resin covers the jaw faces to prevent wear and tear.
For ease of use, four mounting holes guarantee a permanent framing kit setup. Cross Doc framing blocks help you securely glue rectangular frames at four stable points, creating a perfect square. To top it off, the two-inch Bench Dogs help maximize clamp stability at any point, making repetitive clamping easy and fast.
What's in the Box
Two 24-inch Parallel Clamps, two 40-inch Parallel Clamps, Framing Block Kit, and Bench Dog Set.

AFter using these clamps for some time a few more thoughts. I have recently been testing the clamping pressure of all my make clamps, and by far, the jet clamps are the best of all the parallel clamps I own... I have most of them. The big handle with hex grip allows sufficient and fast clamping pressure vs. most other parallel clamps with thin, round, grips.
Update: Further testing with a pressure gauge has indicated many of my Jets are under performing in the pressure category. Wood Magazone did a very good article in the ~Aug 07 issue...if you are in the market for lots of parallel clamps, i suggest reading the test results in this article. The Stanley's actually out performed all the clamps. More pressure = less clamps needed on a glue-up.
The only downside to these Jets are... they have not discounted the price :-) and they are quite heavy vs. any of the other clamps. So if you don't need a lot of clamping pressure, the other less expensive clamps are easier to use if you constantly moving the clamps around the shop... yep, they are that heavy :-) If your pretty strong, it probably wouldn't bother ya much. But with that extra weight, you get the biggest jaws made and the easiest clamps to apply pressure, which often allows you to use less clamps....
Basic design is very similar to the Bessey K-body, with parallel jaws and providing 1,000 lbs of clamping power. But the Jet clamps have bettered what Bessey have made.
Plus points of Jet clamps:
Deeper throat depth, 4-1/4" compared to 3-3/8"
Wider jaws, 1-13/16" compared to 1-7/16"
Longer clamp head 6-15/16" compared to 5-1/8"
Adjustable rail stop that slides up and down bar
Length marking along the length of the clamp
The deeper throat and wider jaws allows for more spread out clamping pressure on the parts being clamped. Wider jaws also stabilizes the clamp laterally even more. Also, the sliding rail stop has a slightly wider footprint than the Bessey, giving a very stable clamp. This feature comes in great when you have many clamps that you need to align on a long clamp.
One feature that I also love is the slide guide trigger. It locks the jaw in place which I find very useful because I often forget to tighten the Bessey jaw before hanging it back on the rack. When I take the bessey clamp off the rack, the jaw has slid down the bar and hammered my fingers many times! The Jet holds the jaw in place. One down side is that I have to pull the trigger to adjust the jaw open or close. This may be a little troublesome when you are clamping and want to close the jaw onto the wood. You have ti pull the trigger to close the jaw. It doesn't slide close on it's own like the bessey.
I don't know which is better, but the jet also has a solid composite grip made of composite material with half of it rubberized.Read more ›
and Jorgensen clamps and made a clamp that is the best that I have laid my hands on. You can feel the quality...
-The Jet clamps have a locking lever that allows you to lock the clamp in place before you tighten it. The Jorgensen use a single handed motion on the handle. The problem with the Jets lever is that after a couple of uses, the lever does not grab any more without applying pressure with your other hand. So tightening the Jet becomes a two handed operation instead of just one.
-The Jet clamps do have a octagonal handle which makes tightening them easier than tightening the Jorgensen.
-The Jet clamps do have a lock on the heads, which keeps the head from sliding down the bar when you tilt them from horizontal to vertical. I have learned to deal with this problem with the Jorgensen. (It only took once getting my hand smashed by the movement.)
I have since purchased four (4) more of the Jorgensen Cabinet Master clamps (48").
I still use the Jet clamps, after I have used all my Jorgensen clamps.
I would not purchase any more of the Jet clamps, especially at the current price of $289.

I assumed good quality when I spent about $540 bucks for two sets of these. I assumed this was a big upgrade from my old clamps. They have such a good reputation. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Stephen

These are well made and fairly heavy. They slide quick and easy and clamp hard. I'm not disappointed at all. The only thing they could do different is sell them for $3.14. Read morePublished on September 26, 2013 by Just your average Justin
