Who Can Benefit from Bessey Clamps?
Parallel jaw clamps are beneficial to cabinetmakers, carpenters, and woodworkers alike. They are perfect for clamping large surfaces without hurting the material because of their large parallel clamping deep jaws. The Bessey K Body Revo Jr. clamps are identical to the Bessey K Body Revo Clamps. The clamps can also clamp curved and circular surfaces that aren’t perfectly straight.
Any professional or amateur woodworker understands that having the appropriate equipment may mean the difference between a successful project and a tedious battle. Bessey has done it again with their K-Body Revo Jr, which is a faultless performer. High-quality, easy-to-use, and durable design, this clamp isn’t as fragile as some others.
We were asked to build a benchtop to cover the washing and dryer in a laundry room during a basement remodel. The 8′ long benchtop was created from 5/4″x6″ pine. We conducted the glue-up in two pieces, each three boards wide, after using the biscuit joiner. We clamped each section with the 24″ and 36″ clamps.
Once the two pieces were completely dried we glued them together again using biscuits and wood glue. This time switching over to the 36″ and 50″ clamps. The large 3-1/4″ jaw surface area is perfect for the 5/4″ material. The parallel clamping surfaces have removable jaw protection pads ideal for cleaning. These caps are resistant to glue, paint, and solvents.
The Bessey K Body REVO Jr clamps come with rail protectors which allow for separation of the rail to your workpiece and may eliminate any accidental glue mishaps.
