Thread: How much do you use Handscrew Clamps

  1. Thanks for the link. Itís good to know of a good ole USA source for new clamps.

    I have a pile of old all wood handscrew clamps. Some quite large. I may have one or two that rival Jimís monster. I do use them.

    The parallel variety were a brilliant bit of evolution. I would not not do without my hoard of Wetzler wood parallel handscrew clamps. Most of those took some effort to clean the threads to smooth condition, but worth the effort.

    I've heard good things about the Dubuque bar clamps, too.

    I used to use handscrews a lot for various workholding operations but they have largely been replaced by my raamtangs (large wedge powered clamp / vises). They still see limited use for clamping but they are rarely my first choice.
    Your endgrain is like your bellybutton. Yes, I know you have it. No, I don't want to see it.

    i can’t quite picture how raamtangs could nearly replace handscrews. Can you elaborate a little.
