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.
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 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.Read more ›
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.
