Jaw and Throat Deftly Handle Your Toughest Projects
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.

These clamps are rock solid, and heavy.
I bought this set to build cabinets and cabinet doors... It is perfect for this work since it holds everything in place while you make fine adjustments.

These clamps are rock solid, and heavy. They seem drop proof so far, as the red seems a mix of plastic and rubber. Clamping pressure is easy on the hands as they designed a wide diam. size hex grip, much easier to twist then classic round grips. The dog system and framing blocks are very well made. They are the ultimate "one size fits all" clamping system. The dogs go into the the bottom of the clamps, as well as a movable dog insert on the back of the clamp, to allow perfect positioning on any dog hole pattern. Very well thought out, high build quality...I plan to buy lots more...

update 9/13/06

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....

I received this set of clamps several days ago and have been extremely happy with it! I have several Bessey K-body clamps that I use in my shop but I think these Jet clamps are better!

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.

These clamps are the best, even better then Bessey. I have over 50 of the different Jet parallel clamps and use them side by side with the Bessey every day. After they are tight the Bessey are really difficult to loosen, these jet with the big handle are so much easier on the hands! These DO get discounted! I have purchased them for 1/2 price at a different site many times and just purchase 16 of the 50" clamps for 23.00 each! The combo set I purchased for 89.00! Even here on Amazon I purchased the 98" for 44.00 so keep your eyes open Amazon changes the prices everyday! Check the other woodworking stores, amazon better start offering the same deals or they will lose a ton of sales. Jet clamps rock, but Bessey has a new clamp in the works and I am sure it will rival these or even be better. 129.00 including shipping and NO tax is a great price Amazon I will take more!

Excellent set, seems like Jet has taken the best from the Bessey

and Jorgensen clamps and made a clamp that is the best that I have laid my hands on. You can feel the quality...

I also have the Irwin parallel clamps and both clamps are great. The Jet clamps have a lot of nifty features that I really like. The quick release works really well and that's one of my favorite features. I don't think any of the other parallel clamps have that. The handles are big and much more comfortable than the Irwins. And one feature that I thought I wouldn't use are the measurements but I actually use it a lot because I like to lay out the clamps before hand and then glue up the pieces. The Irwins feel beefier and the clamping surface is bigger but the Jet clamps are much easier to use and I would prefer it over the Irwins.
