This is a great assortment of clamps for those who either are just starting out, or would like to extend his/her clamp collection. There is no such thing as too many clamps, and these represent a well balanced variety of sizes. They are all heavy duty, with wood handles, and plastic cauls. As for functionality, well, it is an F-Clamp and works just like an F-Clamp. Smooth operating and endlessly useful.
The only issue that I have had with them is that the plastic cauls on them are very, very marring. Depending on what you are clamping up, you will likely want to use some sort of sacrificial wood as a caul, as to not get reddish-orange marks on your wood. Again, it is a minor issue, ultimately. For most applications, you are likely to be using some sort of purpose-built jig or caul, anyhow.
I bought this set about 2 weeks ago and it has been in heavy use since I got it. The pad fell off of the screw on one of the 18" clamps, and the head broke clean off of one of the 12" clamps... too bad I can't upload a picture. I'll send one to customer service and see if they replace the broken clamps. Other than that they seem nice... very little deflection when used with high clamping pressure,...the pads do leave red marks,... but no dents.<br /><br />If you need the pressure point to be perfectly square and flat, .... these are probably not the clamps for you... if you need lots of clamps at a low price,..these are just the thing.
