They weigh a ton and provide marvelous clamping pressure. There is a little bit of a learning curve involved with setting the clamps up, but it is worth the effort to get them in use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As a professional metal fabricator in the business for 30+ years, I'm glad to find these for sale... As a professional metal fabricator in the business for 30+ years, I'm glad to find these for sale. I have 2 Bessey cam action clamps. One like this, and a heavier duty one that is older (25 years old?). The one that's like this one, I've had it about 15 years. It is my less favorite one and the more awkward to use, but still a very good tool. (the older heavier one has a different working geometry, the ratchet handle goes past the long rail on one side because it is mounted at an angle on the end of the sliding bar. And it pulls 90 degrees further when tightened. That makes it so much easier to position it effectively, and to tighten and later remove. Using them for metal, this model clamp is harder to use on irregular shapes, like clamping 2 pipes into an angle iron to butt weld them together in perfect straight line. The swivel pad that the cam forces against the work must be angled just right on the pipe or it wants to slips off of it. The fixed jaw can grip the outside corner of the angle iron okay, but the swivel jaw on this clamp can hardly manage that and it MUST ONLY go against the round pipe at a certain limited angle or it slips off. On the older Bessey, it can go either way because it is made that offset angled way it can put that swivel pad directly in line with the pipe (or angle iron outside corner) and like that it will not slip off of it. It is not always used to grip awkward shapes. Holding 2 flat pieces together is easier. Looking at the photo in this ad, with the red handle pointing down, that is about how it looks when it is tightened. To release it you pull it slightly harder, and squeeze that black trigger. This clamp can make a lot of pressure. When released it can move just as forcefully as when you tighten it, like a spring. If you are not familiar with it, it can smack your knuckles against the work (or against the bottom of the welding table). You'll need to practice and learn how to work it. It is easier to use it with the handle on the top side. I wish they still sold that older model I prefer, but I think those are no longer made so you'd better get yourself one of these. Even these are rare to find. The screw type Bessey are common but these cam ones are special. You need to have at least one of these just to see what they are about. It is well enough made to last a lifetime even used professionally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you buy 1, you will buy more! It is difficult to make yourself spend the money for the first one, but then you can't wait to get more. I saw a video where a woodworker was using it. I had never seen a clamp that worked that way. Researched online and found it. Bought only one. There aren't any words I can use to convey how well this thing works. In my opinion this is the best clamp on this planet. Try one and show everyone you know that builds things.
