24" clamp rack newest One Time !

Recommended Posts

I almost started laughing. $50 for 4 pieces of aluminum slotted to hold parallel clamps or another version to hold pipe clamps. 2 sets for $90

Bessey KP blocks are around $20 - $25 a set.

I fail to see the big advantage. I've got a couple sets of KP blocks and don't even use them that often. But they can come in handy when gluing up  big doors .

Ha! Was just going to create a thread on this one!

Man they come up with some weird, overpriced stuff sometimes!

Ive got some of the Bessey parallel clamp blocks too and when I do need them they work great.

The wood peckers one seems to hold the panel of the bars so you don't have direct glue contact that might be a plus?

K body clamps come with snap on plastic supports that keep the wood from resting on the clamp bars..I have pulled them off of all my clamps so I can use plenty of them on the particular clamps actuall in use. 4 per bar is usually plenty.

I'm with you Steve! I have a whole box that I seriously thought about tossing but someone mentioned if I ever need to make cabinet doors they may come in handy so I through them back in the corner.

I haven't tried the Jet version. Those screw holes would let you mount them to a jig if building multiple doors of similar size.
