Kreg vise grip style clamps -wow!
« on: December 30, 2017, 07:15:35 PM »
Anybody use these?

They automatically adjust to differing thickness's of material.  Looked super impressive in the store, clamping between 3/4" and @3" without adjustment.

Edit:  Someone having fun editing my grammar?

I use their bench clamps with crank down handles vs auto adjust and they work great.  Kreg makes some really good stuff.

Been using them since they came out.  LOVE THEM.  I used them quite a bit when putting up new fencing boards.  I also like their washer head screws.  Get plenty of pull down with the bigger heads.

I bought a pair of the 6 inch ones last week at Lowes and they have a very inconsistent clamping force. Sometimes they would clamp right and other times it would take 2 hands to squeeze them deforming the clamp with the same adjustment.   I contacted Kreg to see if it needed to be lubed or returned and they are sending a replacement right out as it seems I got a defective one . Great customer service that saved me a 40 mile round trip back to Lowes. I definitely will pick up a couple more if the replacement works right. :)
