Question by Russ: Where can i find the best deal on woodworking bar clamp sets?
I’m just getting into woodworking and building my shop, and i’m looking to get as many bar type clamps as possible for as little as possible.
I was very close to picking up a set of wratcheting quick release clamps from a guy on craigslist, but someone else beat me to it.
I don’t want to wait for another used sale to come along again, so what are your suggertions for new clamps?

Best answer:

Answer by swf36D
Well, yard sales, flea markets and swap meets are always the most reasonable option, but if you can’t wait, I would suggest Ebay or Harbour Freight Tools. They have pretty reasonable prices.

    I give the Clean-Up Kit 4 stars. Every item functions as it should and are made of high quality plastic. The extension wands are steel and the the squeegys on the wet attatchment are nice and sturdy. The favorite attatchment of mine is the big floor tool. This thing can be used through-out the entire house. It has a foot switch to raise and lower the high quaulity brushes for carpet or bare floors. The reason I only went 4 stars is because the tools are good enough to warrant the little springy balls that normally lock vac accessories together but Fein chose not to include. Alas, friction as usual will have to do.Other than that I highly recommend the kit.

    This kit includes a good variety of quality tools.

    The parts go together easily with only slight pressure. They stay together when you want them to, but you can still take them apart. Thus far, I have not had them stick together so tightly that I have had to struggle to disassemble them. This was a common and recurring problem with my old VAC.

    I especially like the floor brush. It has two rollers at the back of the unit that are larger enough that you can easily push it around in the typical shop floor dust and wood clips. It likewise includes a built-in lever that permits you to lower bristle strips along the front and rear edges. The benefit is that for shop applications, you can leave the bristle strips retracted and the small wood chips won’t have anything to cling to. You’ll vacuum them right up. But for interior use or for fine particle dust, the bristles help attract and pick them up.

    This package is a nice addition to your Fein VAC.

    I have owned my Turbo II vacuum for a number of years now, and I will admit that I was never willing to spend the money for these attachments. It is true that there are many lesser vacuums out there that include the tools, but I always told myself that I would rather have an awesome shop vac and no tools versus a so-so vac with tools. Recently, I finally coughed up the money for these attachments and I am thrilled to have so much more versatility when using a favored tool. I have had absolutely zero problems with any of the attachments. It is true that there are no “positive lock” mechanisms on the mating pieces, yet I have never had the attachments come apart even after hours of continuous use. I have cleaned our cars, sucked up sawdust, and vanquished cobwebs all to my great satisfaction. The adjustable “bristles” on the floor attachment make pulling stuff off of carpet (such as dust/dirt/woodchips in a car trunk) a painless task.

    If there is a downside, it is the lack of a convenient way to store these tools “onboard” the Turbo II machine (as some other shop vacs offer). For now I am keeping the attachments in a drawer and the metal extension wands lean in a corner. But I guess this is more my problem than a criticism of this tool set. Overall I am thrilled with the performance of this product and I recommend its purchase without reservation!

    Got it in February … going back some time this week. It’s not a good deal even at half the already low price. Here’s how it went.

    Wired backwards so the rotation was wrong relative to switch setting. No big deal but sloppy. Some shipping damage that Amazon did real well with making up for.

    Fence looks almost home made. Ratchets with heated and bent handles to tighten the fence independent adjustments. PIA to use and really a joke. Independent sides are not exactly parallel to one another which makes for bad cuts at the end of each piece as the work moves slightly into the cutter after it comes off the infeed fence. Fence assembly does not secure well to the tool. Basically two rods with knobs that pull fence down on the the machine for a friction fit. You have to work hard to secure it in a way that prevents you from shifting the whole thing with a minor bump. Annoying and potentially dangerous.

    Height adjustment has a lot of slop in it. Raise it and then probably close to a full turn before anything engages in the other direction.

    Casting on the dust outlet is too big to mate well with any of the fittings I’ve found. It’s a shad big. If this was the machine’s only headache I’d be real happy and just grind it down.

    I am not a metallurgist so I don’t know if this could be a fault of the casting but it would appear that the table wants to rust up as soon as I’m done polishing it. I butter it up real good with slipit and use scotchbrite and it seems to need that every other time I use it.

    End of story…motor burned up this weekend. Smoking and stinking and vibrating. I haven’t run anything but cabinet door cutters (small stuff) so there’s no way this thing has ever seen even a medium load.

    Amazon has been good enough to process a refund and pick it up. I am very thankful for that. I’m glad to see this thing go. Real Glad. I have a Shop Fox Table Saw that is not bad. But that too has some real sloppy details. Trunnion is real rough, Table Insert is a pain and the base I bought from Shop Fox is garbage.

    Chances are I’m done with Grizzly, Shop Fox etc. I am going to wait till I can afford better or find it used. When you get down to it half of the discussions you see on these tools are around the tweeks you have to make and rationalizing
    them away because of the price. Everyone would probably get spoiled if the used some decent stuff from present or past and then they’d find a way to buy it even if they had to wait. I have to wonder how many shapers or table saws one will need to buy in a lifetime. One GOOD table saw or shaper etc. if sized right when you buy it should last you a lifetime. So that is what I am going to try to do. I am sick of sorting through China’s crap one piece at a time.

    Sorry I went on a rant…..this machine was a flop for me and I am glad it’s leaving the garage. Amazon will continue to sell me whatever I can buy from them because their service is exceptional. They deserve the success they are enjoying. I can’t fault them for having a broad range of offerings.

    The absolute best bang for your buck for clamps are “Pony” brand pipe clamps, the heads will be about $ 17 a pair, and the pipes (i use 1/2″) are going to be about $ 20 per pair, so you are talking well under $ 20 per clamp for 48″ clamps. These things are practically indestructible, and will last you a lifetime. You will be buying and replacing “quick-clamps” forever. You can make them any lenght you want. I can’t recommend these strongly enough for any wood worker any any level (and remember you can never have enough clamps)
