What do you use for a deep clamp?

Just noticed some Irwin 9SP 9" locking C clamps (two per package for $20 US) at the local mega hardware store, and grabbed them. They have smaller Vise Grip handles and lighter duty clamp jaws than the standard heavy-duty locking C clamp at the same store, but the reach is 1 5/8" longer. Not massive clamping power, but they work great as expected.

I used to use a couple of these:

Downside? $ 150.00 each. (Maybe better now, dunno.)

In my previous life as a countertop guy, I could not always do the caul thing. A couple of those bessies saved my ass just enough times to make them worth the money. I used them maybe a dozen times in a decade... if that. (Handy when you have a warped flange on a stainless sink, for instance. )

I used a pipe clamp and tubasixes to form up a concrete repair job for a client's steps once. I cut it 3/4" too long and bend the tubasixes with the clamp. Client was amazed and stated so with a kudo. Cost: $6.99 for the Chiwanese clamp, $3.99 for the 4' pipe, scrap 2x6. + ++ =======|================ tubasix || |--------------------| || | | | || | | | || | | step | || | | ___| || | | / | repair area || | | / | =======|================ tubasix (top, bottom, left side) +++ pipe clamp (vertical)
Otherwise, for deeper-than-bar-clamp depths, I usually use wooden handscrews. http://fwd4.me/UkR

Bessey medium duty malleable iron clamps give 4-1/2" or more (I've got two that can go 7 inches, and they sell them up to 12). Irwin has similar clamps that go 4-7/8. Jorgensen 4900s go up to 9 inches but they aren't cheap.
When I need more than 7 inches though I usually pile some free weight disks on it, or sometimes a bag of shot.
