Bar Clamps with Heavy Duty Jaws

Dakota    Part No. DKWK1
  • • Perfect for large capacity clamping jobs such as door and window frames...
  •   kitchen units and table and cabinet tops
  • • Extremely powerful clamping force yet incredibly light for easy carrying and positioning
  • • Large no-mar ductile iron clamp heads for a non slip grip
  • • Flat bottom design so that they will stand un-aided

Due to their construction, bar clamps can exert great forces without deforming under the pressure being generated. Produced from flat aluminium beam with ductile iron heads and tails, these heavy duty bar clamps are an essential item for any cabinet makers workshop. The heads and tails of these clamps have flat bottoms to allow the clamp to stand, unaided, on the work bench.

The clamp is fully adjustable as the aluminium bar is drilled at 1" intervals and the tail can be locked off at any of these points to suit all sizes of project. The smooth running rolled acme threaded bar provides easy and rapid movement of the clamp head. Available in three lengths 36", 48" and 60". These are excellent clamps at sensible prices and can be used on all types of project from clamping panels and table tops to cabinet frames and carcases.

    As a weekend woodworker I couldn't justify the Bessey or it's clones, so I bought these. They're an "economical" build, which is "Ronspeak" for don't ask too much of them and they'll be fine. All the comments about the hollow fittings and diamond markings on your work are true - so don't wind them up too tight and use packing pieces between the wood and the clamp heads. The finish on my set was also poor with lots of adhesive smears on and around the heads. This is a reflection of cost rather than build - so try not to let it discourage you. In time I will buy more of these because there is nothing else like them at the price.

    I bought a set of these clamps not long ago. In general, sturdy, light and easy enough to use. However... in my humble opinion they need to be 'modified' before being used on any thing serious. The clamp heads appear to be hollow. The orange protection pads do not protect the work enough. The first time I used them they left ugly marks on the wood surface... diamond marks from the surface of the pads and.. an impression of the rim of the clamp head. Be warned. I have improved them considerably by cutting plywood slightly oversize and sticking (double sided tape) it to the orange pads. Hope this helps anyone thinking of buying them. Chris Bailey

    The cabinet project I'm building was just too large for my current clamps so I bought two sets of six of these. 6x48 and 6x60. I love them. They are light, sturdy and useful. I don't think they'd squeeze a poorly fitting tabletop into perfect alignment, but they will hold a properly joined panel well enough. I'm looking forward to a long relationship with these.

    I purchased these clamps having a small workshop with limited space. These cramps where easy to adjust and light enough to manouver the work. I was greatly please to see that they were stronger than expected and cooped without deformation. Highly pleased and already planning more work.

    Light, easy and quick to adjust but the heads/jaws are hollow which surprised me. I used one to clamp and assert quite serious pressure on something slightly smaller than the head and the plastic covers bowed and actually came away from the metal framing of the heads. I can see these being very good at holding larger framework etc together while the glue dries. As I said, really light and easy to adjust

    Other than the clamps not looking as vivid in colour and being quite chipped on opening they do exactly what you would expect from bar clamps and are more than worth the price paid on offer. As a tight Yorkshireman (hearsay) I am very happy with these clamps and will get more.

    Not as strong as sash cramps but still very useful. These cramps are great when gluing up properly fitting parts. I always say that if you need excessive force to put a joint together then you haven't fitted it properly in the first place. Great value for money.

    These clamps are really handy for frame assembly. I purchased the pack of six 60' clamps on offer which has proved to be excellent value for money.

    these have deeper jaws than my sash cramps and are very useful when assembling wider frames. excellent clamps that i would not be without.
