Default Bessey Gearklamps

I posted about these on FOG last year. They hadnít been released to North America yet back then, only Europe.
Niche type clamp, but nice idea when your traditional handle might get in the way of a tight space and you are looking for something different compared to a Spring Clamp or Quick Clamp like an Irwin.
I bought four 12Ē clamps, I donít think Iíd need a longer version, but Bessey does offer them.
Iíll review them and post pictures later this week once Iím back into town.

Obviously, I havenít gotten around to posting more on these clamps. Fine Woodworking did a mini review of them recently, the authors thought match my own, so I donít have much to add until I use them a bit.

If I remember the specs right, they match other light duty clamps with a 400-450lb rating
