I see many people mention HF (Harbor Freight) clamps, and as a 1-armed woodworker that relies GREATLY on clamps, I can testify that SOME of their clamps are great... while some need a bit of a tweaking to get right.

1- Irwin does make good clamps... not great, but good. However, their clamping accessories are awesome. (Stand up mounts. Larger Pads, clamp rod connectors, face panel presses, etc) But if using other clamps, the accessories will have a hard time fitting. The Pittsburgh trigger clamps (black and grey) at HF will often fit, but require you to drill a larger hole in the clamp rod. But it's fun to test around with. I bought a shopping cart full of Irwin clamp accessories at Lowes when they were on clearance (less than 2 dollars each... nice!) So I'm always looking for clamps that fit these.

2- The HF F-style clamps by Pittsburgh (like $3ish? And have the threaded handle) have been a godsend. I cannot use Pipe clamps for glue ups, due to my 1 arm thing, so I often have to go another route. But it will usually cause the glue up to bow. THEN ONE DAY I found a video by a guy that uses a steel square tube with a notch cut out and these type clamps, that will prevent wood from bowing up. (https://youtu.be/QuiCQSZOmq8 ) and it changed everything for me. Now I'm able to Jerry Rig all kinds of gluing setups with different clamps or a double ended moxon type vice setup.

3- Lastly, the HF blue/orange clamps (forget their name). They are strong as heck, but the metal bar is WEAK AF!!! However, if you take the bar into a store like HD (or any store that sells steel angle, and such) you can find a stronger bar in their metals section and it will also make the Irwin accessories fit it. ANOTHER think on the Blue Orange clamps at HF.... the handle. Sweet mother, that thing can pinch the ever loving sh*t out of your palm. So test it in hand first. Then get out a blade, and shave some off side of the trigger.

.... now.... as far as Higher End Clamps, I fell in love with the Bessey DuoKlamp when Smazon had them on sale a month or 2 ago. I bought 4 at first. Got them. Used them. And 3 days later, I ordered 16 more because they were so good. So keep an eye out for when they go on sale... I got them around $20/ea for 24 and 36 inch models. And I think it was $30 for larger ones... but no need since I can use the Irwin clamp connector and join them end to end after a little drilling.

TIP: 3-in-one oil on the HF screws that are on the handles if their trigger clamps. They rust FAST if you dont. And once a month, take the rod out and give it a thin schmear of 3 oil. This will keep them from rusting. Then a few bucks on cheap clamps will go a long way.

Also... theres plenty of great ways to make wooden clamps out there. I use a toggle clamp I make for my FT table, and its great. Give it a try sometime.

"Can never have enough clamps..."

I've yet to buy any clamps (been working on power tools first). What type of projects do you guys use these smaller clamps for?

Of all the clamps I have, I use these more than anything it seems. Parallel clamps (used to have Bessey but not a cabinet builder so it's gone now) aren't used often unless I'm doing cutting boards.

But these small ones and up to 24", most smaller projects just to hold the pieces together, clamp a board on the table, etc. It comes in very handy.

On the AMZ sale page, the clamps in the images showing the guy using them are not the 6". They are longer or am I wrong?
Good price but deceptive amazon...

I got some of these and didn't think the quality was great. I had some pretty old craftsman ones that were way more sturdy even after like 15 years of abuse.

These are amazing. I've been borrowing then about twice a year for awhile.

Those comments aren't wrong though. I'd take 8 HF clamps over 4 of these. You can always use more and I actually haven't had a HF clamp fail on me yet. Not to take anything away from the Irwin, but it ain't rocket science. And if we want to get technical, the HF have a lifetime warranty too. Not sure how easy the Irwin warranty is to claim on, but the HF is as easy as it gets.

You're spot on. I picked up some HF 18" for a one off project. They're great! My only gripe is the release trigger feels backwards compared to the Irwins.

Side question : does anyone know if all the Irwin pads are interchangeable?

I have 2 of these. They are really too weak for most tasks.

I wouldn't purchase them again.

The pads on my harbor freight clamps keep falling off. Not broken per se but a pain.
