Woodpeckers has a sale on Bessey K-body Revo clamps.
I see between a 30~45% discount depending on the size of the clamp.
Note the clamps are sold in pairs and the pricing is for pairs.
Thanks for pointing that out. Looks like HD is simply lowering the
price and not putting them on sale. AND while HD is a touch more
expensive than the sale price on the small clamps they are also a touch
cheaper on the big clamps. ;~)
MAYBE people have simply quit paying way too much for these style clamps
and Bessey is having to lower them. I recall buying a 4 pack plus
extender bars for about $130 a few years ago, that lately was around
$200. Hopefully Jorgensen will follow suite with the Cabinet Masters.
You obviously haven't ever used a K-body clamp. The older
K-body clamps (pre-Revo) are excellent clamps. The new
Revo clamps seem to have some nice capabilities, but I'm
not sure they're worth twice the price (after the woodpecker
discount) of the original or updated (with the tail hook)
Agreed. The new style K Body clamps do have a larger clamping surface
so that appeals to me BUT the "tail hook" could be much much better.
The closest competitors Jet and Jorgensen have movable feet which makes
using a long clamp on a short work surface easier. If your work surface
is shorter then the Bessey clamp it does no good at all.

Partial marketing, charge what the market will pay. They would be
fool's to not try. They are in business to make money and probably
doing quite well. Just like Festool, not for every one.
But it is called a clamp, Bessey K-Body clamp. The name is the brand,
style clamp, and what it is. Just like Jorgensen Cabinet Master
Clamps. Even the aluminum clamps you are looking at HF have a name
other than "clamp".
bessey kbody revo tail hook clamp
no idea what it means and i do not care as i will never buy them
shows loss of focus at the company on what matters
i have seen it first hand and ego is involved and given precedence
over keeping product and market focus
Marketers know if they have 4/5 of the brands/styles of an item out
there, they will get a higher percentage of sales, compared to
competitors. That may also help explain seeing different "makes" of
essentially the same cars, as well as the great number of types of
cereal in your grocery store.
maybe in your mind but you have shown you buy over priced stuff
what ever floats your boat
some people just are not happy unless they spend more for stuff
bar clamps using black pipe will always be my gold standard
