I have the blue / black F style bar clamps from HF, leaps and bounds better than the ratcheting / quick grip style HF clamps, as well as HF spring clamps, Jorgenson Pony F style bar clamps, Craftsman F style bar clamps and C clamps, as well as HF and Rockler pipe clamps… Really not much difference in any of them…

Now parallel clamps are another animal all together, and much more expensive to boot! I have read some very good things about the Wood River parallel clamps, basically old style Bessey K body clones in green…

I haven’t had a project that I couldn’t clamp up with the selection I presently have. I could use more pipe clamps, and honestly, for the price difference, between the HF pipe clamps with the feet, or the Bessey’s, I will spring for the Besseys…. Extra money well spent… But in F bar clamps, I just haven’t seen a difference…
