Topic tags/keywords: clamp pony

I am about to begin my kitchen renovation and I wanted get some face frame clamps to help install the cabinets. I found a local guy on Facebook that has a pair of Pony #8510 clamps for sale for $50. Is this a good deal? Why do I see them online for hundreds of dollars? They are discontinued and no longer in business so I can’t find a retail value on them. Are the cheaper plastic clamps worth just getting instead? Thanks!

Bessey makes a version Model BES8511, that are around that price for two with shipping. They are available on Amazon. If you can talk the guy down $15 or $20, it’d be worth it.

What a coincidence. This was just posted by another LJer. Follow the link and scroll down to see the clamp you referenced.

That’s the clamp I mentioned in my first post. I guess just saying Bessey Model BES8511 isn’t as exciting as a video :)
