I bought my first couple of toggle clamps at Rockler last weekend and now I
can think of a million different ways to use them, but at $15-$18 US dollars
a pop! Geesh!
Anyone now of a good (cheaper) source for these?
Cutting edge in Houston has them for about $10. I bought mine there a few
months ago and a week later realized how good that price was when I saw
Rockler was about 50-60 % more expensive.
http://www.cuttingedgetools.com/ You will probably have to tell them the
model # as their catalog does not show near what all they carry.
Not quite. I searched for CUTTINGEDGE and found nothing relating to woodwork
or tools. Then I found CUTTINGEDGETOOLS.COM and figured that was the site
you had referenced and added that to the string to save another the search.

You listed the same site that I posted and I did mention that their catalog
did not show everything that they carried
The traditional source for cheap items of this type is Harbor Freight.
Wait til they are on sale (probably about 3-4 times a year like all
their stuff) and depending on size and style they are in the $5 +/-

These are the perfect clamps for use on all of the jigs and fixtures in your
shop for quicker, safer and more accurate work. We have 2 styles; one that
gives pressure at 90 degrees to the base (down pressure) and another that
exerts pressure parallel to the base. There are three down pressure styles,
in each the direction of the handle lever action is different.This can be
clearly seen in photos 1, 2, and 3 at right. These and the forward pressure
clamps,4, come in a variety of sizes - all with adjustable clamp pads to
dial-in the exact pressure needed.
The throat depths are measured from the front edge of the clamp to the
center of the tip, fully extended.
Reid Tool. Follow the economy link, or one of the others if you decide
you need heavier duty. Should be able to find just about any
configuration here. I think there are a couple of other industrial
supply places on the net that probably have good selections as well.
