Product Overview

The BESSEY 40 in. TG Series was invented and patented by BESSEY in 1936 and, has been continuously updated and improved ever since. It has been a recognized standard wood shop tool for decades because of its durability and builds quality. Each BESSEY TG clamp comes standard with an anti-slip system. This includes a set screw that is molded into the sliding arm and interlocks with the serrations on the rail to prevent the clamp from slipping. The corrugated malleable cast iron fixed jaw and sliding arm generate powerful, rigid clamping force. Top jaws are fitted to the rail with no mechanical fasteners to loosen up over time while the powder coating protects against corrosion. The high quality steel rail comes from BESSEY's own German steel drawing plant. The steel bar stock's profile acts as a reliable reinforcement against torsional forces, while the serration on six faces additionally prevents the clamp from slipping. Smooth running spindle with Acme thread provides more clamping with less effort. Finally the pressure pads can be easily changed without tools.

what is the exact measurements on the opening?

Asked by: brackeen244
39 1/2" I bought 4 of these yesterday to clamp some stuff 39 3/4" and they don't open wide enough. They are being returned today. They should be called 39" clamps in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy duty, high quality tool Usually a smaller clamp will do for most of my projects, but when you need something larger, you really need it. With the long length and large throat depth, this is a very versatile tool that I've found numerous uses for beyond what I originally bought it. It seems to be made of high quality materials, definitely very solid - I believe the arm is steel, the two clamp prongs are iron, and the handle is solid wood. It's somewhat heavy, but considering its size, still very manageable. The non-marring plastic tips are a key feature, especially with a clamp this large. All together, a really nice package at an attractive price. If I ever needed a second or a different size, I'd stick with this product line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and heavy If you're working on a big project, this is the clamp to choose. Solid, heavy, and made with good-quality steel, this clamp will provide great holding power for any of your mid- to large-size projects (it's probably too heavy for most smaller projects). The throat is quite deep, which allows for great versatility in placing the clamp onto your project, and the plastic "hands" (which actually touch the wood) are big and sturdy enough to securely hold whatever you're working on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TG Bar Clamp First of all while unpackiing the clamp I grabbed the handle to remove it and by that time it was too late. There was a metal burr where the pin goes through the handle and I had already cut my finger. Not deep, but like a paper cut. that is the only problem I have had with this clamp. It is easy to slide up and down the shaft. It can clamp down pretty hard this out slipping it grip. The wide shaft also helps keep it straight when clamping wide or long projects. Nice addition to my clamp collection. Additional note the Burr was removed right after cleaning the cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Wood Working Tool This is a Bessey clamp which translates to high quality. All the steel parts are solid & heavy. The parts contacting the wood are plastic to protect the wood. These will dry & crack over time but a good wood worker knows to protect the wood with wood scraps. The 40" length was sufficient for my project of creating a table top. The throat depth eliminated any clearance considerations. The clamping pressure is more than sufficient for any gluing project. It can also be used for smaller items. You will enjoy the ratcheting action of the clamp. Just place the end of the clamp you want to go to on the floor then pick the clamp up & tap it on the floor. Voila! The clamp head moves itself to the floor end. The final adjustment is made by manually ratcheting the head to the wood & tightening the screw drive adjustment like any C-Clamp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Biggest and Best Clamp I Own I have pipe clamps and I have my 40" bar clamp. The difference is like a fancy dancy car to a apple crate car. I love the ease of use of this big clamp. I just completed a project using the 40" clamp. I am saddend that I only had one clamp but am looking for a second clamp to add to my collection. It worked so easy on a cabinet I was building. It held the face on while I glued and nailed it to the cabinet. I like that you can change the length of the clamping space with the touch of one finger and it locks securely so you do not have to worry about it slipping. I like the clean lines and the easy operation of this clamp. I would assume that the smaller clamps from this sme company would work in the same manner. I will be replacing older, less dependable clamps with this type of clamp from this company. They look so cool hanging on your clamp rack, all shinney and red. Great investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best! This clamp is very well built and sturdy. It's also very easy to use and accurately built. The rail is made of high quality steel. The handle is comfortable and made with the same quality that the rest of the clamp is. If you want a quality clamp that will last a lifetime, this one will safely clamp up to 1000lbs.
