The clamps above have seen an awful lot of work, but unlike their owner they are still as good as new, in terms of doing the job they were bought for:-)
I have said before that you can never have enough clamps and that is true. The temptation when there is a need for half a dozen new clamps, is to cut costs and buy cheap ones.
I call these clamps "F" clamps because I have been calling them that for the last forty years. Some manufacturers call them bar clamps. Unlike the all steel ones above, these are well suited for bench work and outside carpentry work.
