There is a fella on E Bay UK who sells brand new sets of heads, but I don’t think they are for 133’s. I suppose you could look him up to see if he knows where some are hiding.

I know a guy with several of them, he treats them better than his Wife, so I doubt you will see many guys parting with them, unless the bar is bent, or some other problem.

Here is the E Bay guy

Looks exactly like one of my Australian made Dawn Clamps !

Observe the two red ones on the left for comparasion.

Now as for doing a deal with you, ... only a RN would know the possibilities open.

I have also got some free “Made in India” ones!

And now if I havent already completely pissed you off, on a more serious note:-

You may need to have a look in the spare parts tab as the clamps shown are actually Tee sections, they should fit though if you find one suitable.

Thanks for all the kind replies!

I was able to to turn up an identical Irwin clamp that had a broken crank. It was in the dusty corner of an antique shop in town that specializes in old house parts.

My small collection of this type of bar clamp hasn’t seen the light of day in quite a while, but ahead of me is a butcher block top project with red beech 2”X 2”s and it will be nice to use these big clamps on it.
