My neighbor had a garage sale, and I was able to buy 16 Bessey parallel clamps (24” and 40”) new unused in box at a great price. I’m still getting used to making them move smoothly, but getting better at it.

Pros: can lie flat on a bench on side or facing up (great advantages), heavy duty, strong clamping, large face will not mar wood so don’t need to protect wood from clamp as much,
Cons: heavy, not for light clamping, and somewhat annoying to adjust compared to my other clamps

My other clamps are mostly Pony clamps and Bessey’s non-parallel. For quick and easy, always grab one of these. For serious glue-up, always grab the parallel clamps/
