If you’re working wood, you’re probably clamping parts together. That means you need to have good quality clamps in your shop. It’s really hard to beat the benefits of parallel jaw clamps.
WHY PARALLEL JAW CLAMPS?
I tell you what. The feature I like the best about parallel jaw clamps is that the jaws stay nice and parallel to each other. You may have experienced the jaws on other clamps canting and twisting as you apply pressure to the glue up. That distortion can easily migrate to the panel you’re putting together. If you glue in a twist, you’re never going to get it out. It’s simply not an issue with parallel jaw clamps. This helps keep your parts flat, which means less work for you later.
Additionally, the jaws on these clamps are already padded. No need to add a shop-made clamp pad that never stays in place. With these clamps you can clamp like crazy, and never mar the surfaces of your project.
Finally, keep in mind that these clamps are reversible. You can use them to squeeze, and to push parts apart.
