Deep Throats and Quick-Lock Jaws for Ease of Use
Each JET 70431-2 is a well-constructed 31-inch parallel clamp with a deeper-than-standard throat and wide jaw, so it will be indispensable to your workshop. For convenience, the clamps' Slide-Glide triggers easily lock the jaws into place, allowing for smooth movement.

Clever Rail Design Makes Tough Jobs Easy
Each 70431-2 rail features an innovative Precision-Rule Measurement System that provides you with consistent setups and exact readings on your openings--a feature other clamps fail to provide. What's more, the moveable rail stands add convenience and accuracy to both clamping and spreading jobs.

Ergonomic Design Works for You
The 31-inch parallel clamps feature ergonomic construction that's designed to work for you--not the other way around. Soft SumoGrip handles make the clamps easy to hold, and they also give you increased torque. The clamps do not take much strength to manipulate, yet can clamp up to 1,000 pounds of pressure. For further convenience, each Acme-threaded handle easily turns while applying continuous pressure.

Built for Durability and Versatility
These clamps are 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, each clamp is built for long-lasting use. Additionally, a non-marring composite resin covers each clamp's jaw face to prevent wear and tear and ensure even clamping pressure.

Very versatile, each 70431-2 is designed with a workable profile that allows you to narrowly clamp on the side of the jaw face. For further flexibility, the clamps' moveable, reversible jaws can be dual-purposed as spreaders.

What's in the Box

From the Manufacturer

The JET Parallel Clamps have unique features not found in regular clamps. The design allows for precision and power with exact 90 degree clamping at up to 1,000 lbs. pressure which minimizes the tendency of warping and distortion of the workpiece. The movable jaw can be reversed to change the clamp into a spreader, which makes the Jet Parallel clamp a multi-purpose accessory for the woodshop.

I acquired a couple of the Jet clamps as a freebie with a machine purchase. Much to my surprise, they are the equal of Bessey clamps (which I have a lot of) in performance and actually appear to be better made. Personally, I'd buy whichever was better priced if I were in the market for more parallel clamps.

Just another review to say the Jet clamps are top quality. I agree entirely with MarkH's review. Rockler dropped JET clamps about a yr or so ago and I think it was a mistake. I bought the new Bessy clamps, but they are not as good quality (in my opinion) as JET. When you're clamping, especially a large piece with complex sections, you really don't want to fuss with making the adjustments hold. JET's lock clip is really reliable and well worth the investment.

I just received my 31" Jet parallel clamps. I have gone to Jet clamps exclusively and now own 12. They are easy to use, positively lock where you want them, and minimize wood marking. The measures on the bars are quite handy when clamping with multiple clamps. Once you know the length you wish to clamp, all can be set very quickly. I highly recommend these clamps to any cabinet maker, professional or hobbyist.

This product is great. I've used them before and really like them.

I order three of these on March 10, 2014. I still haven't received them. I called Jet and they said it would be Fall 2014 before they were fully stocked again. This sucks; mainly because Amazon is showing there are 12 in stock currently. I understand that it's a different seller... but when it's outstanding this long they should do some horse trading to satisfy the buyers. Come on Amazon.

p.s. I will update my rating when my order is fulfilled. That's about all the leverage I have at this point.

I have been a long time fan of my Pony-Clamps. But as all woodworkers know, pipe clamps have their limitations and draw backs. I finally caved and have begun augmenting my clamp arsenal with these Jet parallel bar clamps. Yes, they are considerably more expensive than pipe clamps but holy smokes, these are amazing. I LOVE the massive clamping heads, the deep throat and eases of use. Frankly, I am surprised by the clamping force they possess. They aren't quite as bone crushing powerful as pipe clamps but pretty darn close.

The ability to "cross clamp" make them well worth the investment.

They are VERY well made. Heavy and substantial. Any workman can instantly tell they are engineered and manufactured for a lifetime of rugged use, just by holding them in their hands. They have somehow struck the perfect balance between "heavy and rugged" yet not forsaking "elegance".

Without question I give them a ten out of ten.

You can never have too many clamps! Jet clamps are wonderful. Very strong , easy to adjust, wide clamping surface, and virtually zero deflection. The only bad thing is that the plastic handles can break if you drop them and I've recieved a few damaged in shipping. I'm actually STILL waiting on Amazon to ship these, but I've bought them before.
