Question: Best Clamps

  Re: Question: Best Clamps by D_Harris (There seem to be man...)
I do believe that I read a review of the China made Jorgensen clamps and it was positive. I think that if I was looking for clamps, I'd give the Jorgensens a try. If they don't work out within the return period, return them.
I no longer build museums but don't want to change my name. My new job is a lot less stressful. Life is much better.

If I have glue left over and do not plan to use it in the immediate future, I pour the glue into a small tin like a tuna fish can. When cool I band saw the glue ,can too into cubes. The can will fall off and the cubes are placed in a plastic zip bag. Then put in the freezer for future use. 
If the excess glue is not frozen and left in a warm shop it will stink.

To freeze hide glue you can also use an ice cube tray.

I bought a couple of Jorgy 6” F-style clamps from Lowe’s. Well made, nice handle, equal to their former USA made F-style.

I did just let four pipe clamps go on Ebay because the condition and price didn't meet.

For $15 each at Amazon.com I guess I can't complain.

I can only assume that all of these are now made in China.

And here are some that I assume were designed to look like the PONY/Jorgensen clamps.

Bessey and Jorgensen plus I have some hand spring clamps.

Oh and the clamps for Kreg pocket hole joints come in handy also

Pony/Jorgie sold out to China a few years ago. I think bankruptcy was involved. Don't remember for sure

The Revos apparently are designed to clamp railroad ties and pull together horrifically prepared joints
