Topic tags/keywords: quick grip clamps american tool company carpenters bench cast iron grinder stand bench vise

I had a workshop fire and have slowly been replacing items. Trying to find some of the
deep 5 1/2” jaw quick grip clamps that were made by the American Tool company. If you have one or more of these, please let me know. I use them in a specific Antique restoration I do and have not found anything that works as well in that one application.

Also seeking

an antique carpenters bench with dove tail construction, one I could actually use

cast iron grinder stands 35” tall

large American made bench top vise , these and the grinder stand are more for metal working so hoping someone out there has one they will part with

If you’re unsuccessful finding some 5 1/2 quick clamps, these Bessey f clamps work really well or look for some deep C clamps.

The items I am working on have a series of angles in them. These Bessey types with the smaller clamping area straight on part that touches the wood are harder to keep in place for me on these particular angles.
