As a woodworker the old adage that says you can never have too many clamps is absolutely true. I find that pipe clamps are the most convenient and inexpensive way to keep a healthy arsenal of clamps in the shop. This type of fixture allows me to vary the length of clamp depending upon the application. I keep pipe of different lengths on hand and move the fixture to the length pipe dictated by my project or application. This clamp has some great features that are worth noting. 1. The foot of the clamp is a real plus when I'm gluing up larger parts. This feature keeps the clamp stable and in place while I get parts glued up and ready for clamping. 2. The pads that slip over the jaws of the clamp protect the work piece from marring are a great feature. Other brands don't include these and charge extra for them. 3. The fixture itself is very well built and holds strong when I'm really cranking down on a work piece. Others I have in the shop that came from a store that sells cheap throwaway tools won't hold under such pressure. The foot of the clamp slips on the bar thus defeating the purpose. This is a high quality clamp fixture and is a great addition to my ever-expanding collection of clamps. Pros Durable, Easy to Use, All In One, Sturdy, Strong, Good Size & Weight, well built Seeds Top 1000 Contributor JerryT North Dakota, USA 55 to 64, Male 8 out of 8 people found this helpful

I have 4 to 5 Home Depots around me. One of them is in a busy shopping center and is out of just about all the deals and another one of them in a bad location has most of it’s displays full. The others are somewhere in between. I guess it just depends on where you are. Also I just read an article saying that the DIY is dying, “Do it for me” is growing, and Home Depot is going to start going after the pros more. I know somebody writes every few month about how DIY is dying, but the point of the article is that Home Depot is preparing for declining sales to homeowners.

I’m not sure why Home Depot has slashed the prices on these particular tools. In some of the Home Depot stores I’ve visited, the displays for these tools are almost empty or gone altogether, while in others displays of the same tools were still full.

You have to look for the sets with more of the 2″ insert bits. There is one 56 pc holiday set that’s $12 right now marked down from 14.88. The one I can find on the Home Depot site, isn’t the right set, so I’m not linking to it. The one on display looks like it has 7 or 8 of the 2″ bits in Phillips, slotted, and square with an extra collar. I’m guessing it’ll drop in price again because I’ve seen a ton of them at every Home Depot I’ve been to.

I have the 8 pc Dewalt max fit screwdriver set and I like them. You’re right about the 1″ insert bits not being compatible. I wish they wouldn’t put the yellow band around them that makes it look like they are. You have to look for the sets with more of the 2″ insert bits.

I rarely ever use the 1″ bits. If I have a choice I’ll grab a 2″ bit.

I was excited last June when I spotted the deal on the 6 piece Bessey Clutch Clamp set. When Home Depot brought this set back for the holiday season, I still thought it was a good deal. Now that they’ve slashed the price to $17, it’s a deal that’s hard to refuse. I had to restrain myself from buying a few sets.

Seems different Home Depot’s have different specials, but you really have to scan the sku’s. We have 3 HD’s within a very close proximity of each other, so I am able to compare easily. Don’t forget about Lowe’s, they also sneak in some descent specials, at mine, a 12″ Dewalt 80 Tooth fine blade is now $29.00

They are exceptionally affordable you buy the set of clamping fixtures (head and tail piece), and then attach them to a length of iron black pipe (not included). A nice feature of the BESSEY “H” series pipe clamp fixtures is their height. The extra high base provides industry leading clearance from the work surface. Clamping fixtures are available to fit 1/2 in. and 3/4 in. black pipe. The Pony 3/4 in. Pipe Clamp is designed to be used on any length of 3/4 in. black pipe. This clamp has a clutch disc design for easy adjustments and can be secured at any point along the bar. This clamp meets the rigorous demands of commercial shops, school shops, woodworking or metalworking users.
