Product Description

Product Description

The New Generation K-Body Revo Clamps Have 30% Larger Parallel Clamping Surface Than The Previous K-Bodies And Feature Replaceable Glue Resistant Pressure Caps For Delicate Surfaces And Easily Removable End Rail Clips To Convert To Spreaders.

From the Manufacturer

The new K Body REVO clamp range from BESSEY offers some 30% more clamping force, and newly-designed pressure caps and work-piece contact elements also protect the work-piece exceptionally well. The Vario K Body REVO clamp enables the head to be adjusted at the press of a button. The new K Body REVO clamp from BESSEY achieves a powerful 7,000 N clamping force – some 2,000 N more than usual. In addition, the jaw face has been increased by 30%. Three removable and glue-repellent pressure caps guarantee work piece protection. Adjustable work piece contact elements prevent direct contact between the work piece and the serrated steel rail under full utilization of the jaw face. The tilting K Body clamp adapter (available separately) KR-AS which is easily pushed on to the clamping jaws enables clamping requirements outside of the 90° range to be fulfilled. The tilting adapter adjusts to the work piece, regardless of whether fitted in a v-shape or at a slanted parallel. The additional module is infinitely tilt-able within a range of 30°. 12 " K Body REVO, 1,500 lb clamping force, 3 3/4" Throat depth, 3 removable jaw pads, 2 component ergonomic handle, removable material protector pads, removable end stop, can be attached to a work bench using Bessey TK-6 clamps. Set includes 2 pieces KR3.524 K Body REVO clamps, 2 pieces KR3.540 K Body REVO Clamps and 1 set of KP Blocks for use constructin frames, door panels, boxes and cabinets

By K. carroll on February 12, 2009
I received these clamps and one of the end rail pieces was broken. I asked Amazon to ship me a replacement piece but I guess they are not set up for that so they shipped me two replacement clamps. Oh well.
I took the piece I needed and noticed that one of the replacement clamps had a cracked red plastic head.
So, two clamp shipments, both had broken pieces.
The plastic on the new clamps is thin and cheap versus the sturdy plastic used on the old ones. The black plastic jaw covers keep slipping off also - annoying!
The mechanism works just as well - I'd say it was identical to the old, but all in all these are a downgrade from the K body clamps.

I give these 5 stars!! These clamps are awesome -- they sung up easier than the previous generation and they are easy on the hands; they have great grips. The jaws remain parallel to the point I get lazy and often omit the blocking.

Additionally, I like to snug up the clamps before I hang them on my clamp rack so that the movable section doesn't come crashing down on my hand when I remove them; These are the easiest parallel clamps to snug up. I sure wish these weren't so expensive but I love them. More are in my future --

One issue however, is the packing -- when the clamps arrived, the end of the box was destroyed and 2 of the black plastic "retainer" clips were trashed -- not a big deal for me as I remove them anyway - the clamps were otherwise in great shape -- ( I can't imagine too much could happen to these things-- they are tanks)

I am a woodworker and have used Bessey K-Body clamps for years. I would say that the old K-Body clamps were the best on the market. The only minor issues I had with them were the smoothness of the screw handles and occasional trouble getting the clamps to engage when gluing up. It seems that these new REVO clamps have solved those issues. The rubber grip on the handles allow me to easily apply adequate pressure to the work piece and I have no problems getting the clamps to engage immediately. I hope that they stand up to the rigors of a woodworking shop like my old K-Body clamps have.
I like the removable protection pads that slip over the clamp jaws, although I found that some don't fit as snug on the jaws as others. The outer protection pads slip right off the 40" clamp jaws (but fit snug on the 24" jaws). Since I don't do a lot of spreading with my clamps, I just removed them and put them in a drawer. But it is a minor quality control issue. For the price of these clamps, fit and finish should be dead on.
I like the fact that they added the adjustable workpiece contact elements that slide along the clamp bar to protect your workpiece from damage by the serrated bar. But time will tell if they last, as they are plastic and clip on the bar. Upon arrival of my clamps, many of these contact elements were laying in the box forced off the bar due to inadequate packaging.
Okay, now for the negative stuff, and it all has to do with the packaging. I bought a couple of the kits (this one and a kit of 24" and 50" clamps). I had read all the reviews on the poor packaging, took a chance and ordered them anyway. I have to completely agree that Bessey should get it together and improve their packaging of these clamps.

I already had a couple of JET parallel clamps, but was looking to make a significant investment in new clamps. I own and operate a small custom furniture business, and clamping is always a pinch point in my workflow. I simply don't have enough. I bought 10 Bessey clamps hoping to help resolve this problem. I went with Bessey because reviews here and on woodworking forums seemed pretty good.

In all honesty, they can do the job. They just aren't as good as the JET. They are also significantly cheaper than JET. So in short, you get what you pay for.

My two biggest complaint is the way they engage the bar, and the torque you can get on the handle. The release is the same handle as that you tighten with. When lifted is engages, push down it releases. This means when the bars hang from a standard clamp rack, the mobile head can randomly drop. This can't be good for the clamp, and is not good for a hand holding the bar to toss it back on rack. Second, the shape of the handle you twist to tighten down is just not as ergonomic as the jet. You can get much more torque on the JET handles.

All in all, they are not bad clamps, but they are not the best clamps. If your budget allows, go with JET, otherwise these will likely be able to get most jobs done.

Before ordering a couple sets of the Bessey K Body REVO clampsBessey KRK2440 K Body REVO Fixed Jaw Parallel Clamp Kit Includes: 2-24-inch, 2-40-inch K Body Clamps and 1 set of KP Blocks, I read all the reviews here on Amazon. All very very good except a couple had mentioned poor packaging and broken plastic rail end stops. Since that part is not that important to the over all clamping function and assuming the Bessey folks would read such reviews and probably address their packaging problems, I went ahead and ordered two sets. The first shipment arrived and sure enough, I had a couple of broken end stops! Amazon was quick to respond and immediately sent a full replacement set. A day or two later the second set arrived and it too had broken pieces. After I received the original repacement set (it too had broken pieces), I was able to combine the three sets into two good sets and send all the broken ones back to Amazon. A bit of a hassle but I did finally end up with the clamps I wanted and at the best price I could find! Perhaps Bessey will FINALLY get the message that their packaging is poorly designed and will make the nessary improvements. Its a shame that such a quality minded manufacturer places their great products in such pooly deigned packages!
