Product Overview

The original BESSEY malleable cast iron bar clamp was the world's first bar clamp. It is an industry standard because of its durability and build quality. Each BESSEY TG Series clamp comes standard with an anti-slip system; including a set screw that is molded into the sliding arm and which interlocks with the serrations on the cold drawn steel rail. The profiled steel rail comes from BESSEY's own German steel drawing mill and , is shaped to act as a reliable reinforcement against torsional forces. The smooth running spindle with Acme thread allows rapid and powerful clamping.
  • Integrated anti-slip system with a hardened set screw molded into the sliding arm which interlocks with the serrated rail
  • Malleable cast iron fixed jaw and sliding arm allow powerful rigid clamping
  • High-quality profiled steel rail
  • Hardened, smooth-running spindle with Acme thread
  • Ergonomic composite or wood grip handles
  • The fixed jaw is press fit to the rail with no mechanical fasteners to loosen
  • The original BESSEY malleable cast bar clamps are available in 60 different combinations of capacity, throat depth and style of handle

These clamps are working fine for their intended use. It helps to have the right clamps for a particular job and Bessey has a wide selection to choose from.

Awesome Clamps
Used these on a project right away. Very strong, and I like the way the slider works on this. Almost effortless.

Heavy. Duty.
These things are heavy duty. Bigger and beefier than the other Bessey bar clamps I own. It can be difficult to decipher from the model numbers and descriptions where each different clamp falls on the spectrum, but these are definitely on the beefy side. I have Jorgenson bar clamps, a couple Irwin bar clamps, and a variety of the "typical" Bessey bar clamps you might find at a big box store or Woodcraft, and these are heavier and stronger than any of the others. Of course, that means they are literally heavier, and bigger, and thus may be a bit trickier to hold or place one-handed, and take up more space when stored, but they deliver in clamping force and zero deflection. The medium-duty clamps are great for everyday jobs, but it's great to have a few of these, too, for the jobs that require greater clamping force. Also, the deep throats are great for distributing clamping force across a wider workpiece, without having to reach for (or make) customized cauls or blocks.

I Love the Design of These Clamps
These are close to being the 'platinum bar' for clamps of this design. Easy to handle. Easy to use. With their large handles, you're able to exert good force, with zero deflection, in small increments. The throats lock into place easily and are sure-footed. I've adapted two pairs for my cauls ... and they work perfectly. Love 'em.
