I bought some that look just like them from Homier and had to throw them out
immediately since the aluminum just ripped up when I tightened them.
So I bought some from HF that look just them. They have lasted much long,
but don't tighten up well and are starting to fail.
So I bought some good ones from Woodcraft
They are very nice, but not cheap. I need some more clamps.
The Rockler are well priced, but they look like the Homier and HF crap.
So, has anyone used them?
I bought some very similar looking clamps.
They would be all right for light work, it's what I use my surviving one
The other had the cast end break of at the last rivet.
Really they are bloody useless.

Nevery used 'em. Now, if I need more clamps I normally just make
cam clamps, up to 48".
You'll never get anywhere if you believe what you "hear".
What do you "know"?

I have both the Rocklers and some like the Woodcraft version from Highland
I'm happy with both. No problems with either. The Higland hardare versions
have smaller increments I belive.
ive got 2 clamps 4ft's, plus 2 extensions, find that they are really useful,
infact the most usefull of all my clamps for long clamping. One comment, if
you are considering getting the extensions, dont, just spring for an extra
clamp, and get a joiner to put them together. always better to have many
complete clamps, than extension that can only be used once in a while.
