I own several of these Bessey clamps in various lengths, and I think the world of them. I have never experienced the bar "bowing" like other clamp bars tend to do. With a reasonable pricetag, I think these are some of the better all-around clamps on the market.

This clamp is the perfect little tool to have around your house when you're building or mending small drawers or chairs. This is not a heavy duty piece, but you can manually tighten it to the point where it damages your object. Its important to remember that it doesnt have cushions and you need to use some kind of wooden or hard rubber spacer to protect the surface of your object.
This clamp is the kind of tool that once you have it you'll wonder why you didnt buy one sooner. I have them in several different lengths and would be lost without them.

My shop is equipped with a full range of Bessey bar clamps, up to 60 inches, and they are quick to adjust, robust, and seemingly indestructible. They replaced my old Jorgensens which don't function as easily with their locking mechanism, and I hate the oil-like stain/spot that the Jorgensen clamp pads leave on bare wood, even after years of use.

Well made, sufficiently strong for its purchase, price is fine. I use these to mount board material on a work bench. I have other types of clamps for other uses. You must really want the plastic caps (to avoid damage) A full metal clamp gives a better grip and position stability. The height of the upper clamp needs to be small to provide clearance for a disk saw. That height could have been a little less for me. I had a similar set, it was stolen, and after that I bought these.

Had the unfortunate experience of sawing through the clamp that this one replaces. Yeah I was a dope. Good thing it wasn't part of my anatomy. In any case these clamps work fine and have for years.

Bessey clamps are some of the best clamps out there - I own many - I would say the TGJ2 are the better choice - the LM series clamps are light duty - but I have built many pieces of furniture with these TGJ2's and at a third of the cost of K-body clamps, they are an excellent choice.

I received this product in the mail, like most others. What was different about this newly purchased item is that there was evidence of wear to the point that even the laziest person would be driven to bring some shadows to light via Amz review. The item was beat up. Packaging was pristine. The only redeeming factor here is that though it appears used, the clamp is still functionally effective enough to hold a skull in place.

I have many clamps but I did not have this style. These are very quick and easy to use. You will find yourself reaching for these clamps more than any other in the shop. Outstanding product and the price is great. Absolutely love these clamps.
