never tried these but like the idea but a little but pricey

That picture looks like it was set up by the art department. I would
have to assume that any woodworker would position the movable jaw such

I'm pretty sure you could get 3/4" pipe clamp hardware + a pretty long
pipe for about the same amount.
Ever thought about drilling and tapping the end so you could put a piece of
threaded rod and a nut in there? Or filing off a hex pattern so you can
get a socket on there? Some red loctite would probably hold just fine in
both directions. That way, you could turn it with a socket wrench.
I realize not every C-clamp has enough meat on the end to make this
possible. And that the lead screw could be hardened...
I use 'kan't twist' C clamps that were designed by Navy retired
for the Navy.
Normally used on metal for clamping and welding or drilling.
I have 1" to large 10" or maybe 8". I use them when I need to clamp.
(Amazon.com product link shortened) 4 1/2"
The center grove clamping face can be rotated 180 to be a flat on one
And they are powerful. MSC sells them and amazon sellers.
I'm using mine to clamp 4x4 and 2x6 oak boards so I can drill and screw.
