I have a mix of Bessey, Jet and Bora parallel clamps. I like the Bessey’s the best, the Jets are in the middle and the Boras the least, but the differences are small enough that if I needed more and got a deal on some Bora’s, I would get them. I’d do the same with Jet over Bessey

I occasionally search for early to mid-2010 era Jorgensen Cabinet Masters. The ones with the turned wood handles. I have a modest selection but regret not buying out the entire stock from OSH when Lowes shut them down. I can’t bring myself to buy the newer ones with the plastic handles as they wouldn’t match my existing collection. Plus, the company is no longer Jorgensen, and they are no longer made in the US. Sadness…

If Bora’s clamps are anything like their roller stands, oh heck no….
