Interesting post Waho6o9, I’ve never heard of Groz clamps in any magazines/internet articles before. I’d be reluctant to buy many without putting my hands on them first. That said, my first bar clamps I ever had were Jorgy’s and I found them to be bulletproof. I don’t really have any preference on a wood vs. plastic composit handles so that’s not a factor. However the Bessey’s just look damn cool. Can anyone shed light on longterm use with these clamps – and drawbacks after heavy use (i.e. misalignment of the jaws, slipping, ease of retraction)?
