Clamping force gets more compact
Bessey’s new GearKlamps look and work similarly to traditional F-style clamps, but without the handle extending from the sliding jaw. Instead, the in-line handle rotates around the bar for easy access in tight spaces, and four gears (inset photo) transfer clamping force to the padded jaw. Bessey says these clamps can produce up to 450 pounds of clamping force.
