Bessey bar clamps,wooden bowl turning tools,ebonized pearwood veneer - Review
Tradesmen Bar Clamps feature glue resistant, large diameter plastic caps, oversized acme clamp screws that deliver 600 lbs of clamping pressure and a profiled, drawn steel rail.
One of the many unique features of this tried and true clamping tool is its locking mechanism. BESSEY Tools traces its origins back to 1869, in Bietighiem, Germany, where Max Bessey founded a bright drawn steel mill. They're used in more cabinet shops, stair manufacturers, furniture builders than any other clamp in the world.
Unlike most “clutch” style clamps, these have a molded in set screw that interlocks with serrations on six sides of the rail.
In 2011, BESSEY continues to produce steel but has also evolved into a top-tier clamp and cutting tool manufacturer, offering over 1,300 distinct tools to more than 90 countries worldwide.
Sunday car-sales pitches aside, they’re knocking about ten bucks off the larger Bessey clamps they have in stock, like 24” and 40” K-body clamps. Either way you can save a few bucks on some big clamps and add to the collection in the shop.
They also feature a slot in the clamp, so you can drive fasteners in the joint while the glue’s drying, without the entire piece shifting.
After more than a century of product and process improvement, the BESSEY quality standards cannot be duplicated anywhere else in the world.
