I submitted this too and it seems to be a great deal on four 50-inch parallel clamps. Seems to be like half the price of Amazon. Ended up paying 150 out the door after tax and shipping. I almost spit out my coffee when I saw this very good deal was from woodpeckers, one of the most consistently high priced retail websites there is. They do make one hell of a quality product though!

So this is only a few dollars more expensive than pipe clamps at this price? Weight and more stability/strength - what are the advantages to these?

Wow, great deal. I paid $75 per pair for 40" Yost clamps from Woot. This is a much better deal. If I had waited, I'd have 8 of these on the way instead of 6 of the Yost hanging on in my garage. I just can't justify buying more right now. I sure wouldn't mind catching a deal on some of the Woodpeckers measuring and marking stuff, though.

The jaws are a lot deeper, but maintain parallel (or close to it) all the way across when clamping. This helps keep the glue-up square and flat without extra work or cauls. It used to be true that pipe clamps could exert much more clamping pressure, but modern parallel clamps have caught up to them.

Worth watching before you pull the trigger on these. [youtube.com] They should be called "parallel" clamps.
