The Parallel clamps have to go [member edit]

Ad-free for all members


So I’m probably going to lose my YouTubers licence for this, but I’m afraid my parallel jaw clamps are going to have to go, and in this video I’m just going to explain why that is, and how you can get your hands on them as I’ll be giving these away. Enjoy!

I don’t use my parallel clamps all that often, and like you I found them heavy and getting in the way on the floor. Now I’ve got some French cleat hangers I’ve got them out of the way, but probably still won’t use them that much.

What they are useful for are occasional large panel glue ups as at 1200mm these are my longest clamps. The Aluminium sash clamps I have are only 900mm but in hindsight I’d probably buy more sash clamps given the choice.


I’m not massively in love with F clamps. I have a load but have found that over time they can slip on the bar so you keep on turning the handle and the clam…

We had a chat about it on instagram - he said he thought my timing was terrible, I said it was his timing that was off, lol! I suggested he put his name down but he reckoned he had enough clamps - as if! 😂👍

Good rundown of the clamp styles. I also really only use one style of clamp, in 3 different sizes, they're affordable, easy to use and easy to store. I agree, get the clamps you need for the work you do.

I feel similar, I have the bessey parallel clamps and I think I'll just use them on the bench press :) I ended up getting more of the short duo clamps as I always see you using them and they are fantastic, just made a boom arm for my dust collector and they were perfect for clamping that up.

in my early days o wood working i used to clamp things as hard as I could go, now days I try to be more delicate, and your video makes me wonder do we really need these huge clamping pressures or are they just a sales ploy to get you to buy them?

In days gone by I had a use for high clamping pressure to persuade straight stuff to bend and bent stuff to straighten. I was building a boat where nothing was straight. These days my need is normally to hold things in place whilst the glue sets. I will keep my big clamps though - not for the pressure but for the reach.
