    Default clamps

    Ok I bought these clamps years ago. Don't remember where, their large spring clamps with gripping metal teeth that pivot. these clamps are the best clamps I've ever had , simply the best for boatwork in the shop. They hold on any angle without slipping. I just can't find them anywhere. I'd love to purchase more. any help would be great. Dave IMG_3078.jpgIMG_3079.jpgIMG_3079.jpgIMG_3080 (2).jpg

    I've never seen any like them. If you find a source, I want some too.

    How much do those teeth chew up the wood?

    They only leave little pin holes if your careful. If it's in a spot that gets finished its easy to fill them. they are very sharp. I think their pony clamps cause of the orange handle, but i still can't fin them.

    I often glue sandpaper to blocks for wrangling normal clamps, could do the same with these for protecting the wood..
    have a load of crappy little plastic ones with pivots but this big model looks pretty useful!

    Could those pads be modified with teeth, do you think?

    I don't see why you couldn't fit some small pins to that pivot block.

    I've used everything over the years like sandpaper angled blocks to help to clamp angles, still nothing works as well as these, I know I bought them on line, just can't remember from who....well there's a lot of things I can't remember .... I think. I guess I could try making some.

    They look like they're from Jorgensen (Pony).
    Is there anything embossed on them?

    Jorgensen and Pony appear to be out of business. There is a product called Miter Clip that has a single sharp point on a spring clamp, about $15 US. Some guy on line takes the pivot ends off of plastic spring clamps and replaces them with #4 screws which dig into the wood, a cheep version of Miter Clip.

    Jorgenson has passed away, but their brand name will rise again from the graveyard of quality.

    Kleg makes something similar for $20-30. I saw two examples in the hardware store yesterday.
