Bessey Spring Clamp Review

Unread post #1 by timber715 » Thu Oct 18, 2012 2:27 am

been using these for a short while already.
Image
now while the clamping force is pretty decent, the non marring rubber grips are terrible. they keep sliding off the clamp making it more difficult to use than f-clamps...
Image
you can even see the clamp on the left having skewed tips...


built quality: 5/10
durability score: 6/10
overall score: 6/10

note: I do not recommend this product....

Could be useful for welding as the first thing to do is remove all the non marring stuff...

I already have those clamps Timb. I purchased the Jorgensens. I remove the non marring pads for use on metal. If you would only use for wood why not super glue the pads. That's what I did with my other clamps. Since then I stopped losing pads as well.
