You may never need these... No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

But when there’s a need for ultra deep jaw clamps 12 inches nothing else will work.
So, I put off buying these for a long time and sure enough I have a job at hand that needs these. @ 10 a piece you cant beat the price and could take the pin out and replace it with a handle but I see no need to that.

Unfortunately I needed four of these for the job at hand but it will speed things up.

It will be interesting to see if they retain their shape after being used for a while.

I have some of them for several years,they work well but of course you cannot torque them very much,they just are not made for that.

When you are gluing things together you need just enough force to brig the two pieces together with slight extra pressure. Not sure why I would want to apply so much pressure that would break or bend one inch thick clamps.
Even if these camps were used every day, in a normal environment and not a stress test handled by Conan the barbarian then they should last few life times ;-)

They’re probably intended for welding use, but whatever works.

I own four of these, two of the large ones, two of the smaller ones. They are not heavy duty welding clamps for sure, and you can see the cast iron flexing on them almost as soon as you start to put pressure on.

That being said, I have used mine for everything from clamping up guitar bodies, (clamping the middle of the wood), to putting one into an acoustic guitar soundhole to reglue a bridge on. They work OK, as long as you realize they are not really heavy duty. The price is right, and if one does fail, no big deal.
