Though smaller and more economical than their larger cousins, these light-duty clamps from Bessey have many of the same advantages found on K-Body
clamps — large clamping surface area, well-distributed clamping force, parallel clamping ability, etc.
The steel jaws are shrouded with a non-marring and glue-resistant, high-impact plastic measuring 1-1/4" wide by 4-3/8" long with a 3" throat. Because the large clamping surfaces are parallel, they apply consistent pressure over the entire face of the jaw, making the jaws less likely to crush wood fibers. The detachable end stop on the steel bar helps stabilize the clamp in use and removes to allow reversal of the screw jaw for spreading.
Well made, the clamps exert a maximum of 330 lb of force. Maximum opening capacity listed below.
The 18" UniKlamp is no longer available.
