I'm glad other people have this problem too. I didn't know how many I had until I got somewhere to stash them.

Some are in use, the table has a slight bow in it, so clamped it down to the cast bed of the table saw while I pour the resin or it will all pool in the middle.

Or these pipe clamps, I have another 3 sets somewhere, great if your making larder cabinets.

And downstairs in the barn I have the mother of all sash clamps 5 quid from the market, about 6 foot long. Not sure exactly where it is.
Yes, I bought some Bessey f clamps, then saw the ones in Lidl for a fraction of the cost. The Lidl ones are just as good, if not better as they have a slightly deeper throat. So when they next came in I bought a load more. I've melted a few clamp pads tooNice collection!
Do I spot some of the lidl f clamps in there? I have a few of them & they are really good considering the price! Haven't broke or bent one yet but I have melted the plastic protectors with heat from welding!
Nice clamps, but did you remember to get the cheater lens?Well, I hadn't seen this thread but today I called into Truflame in Sheffield for a magnifying lens for my helmet, there on the shelf, next to me, at the checkout, RIGHT THERE: Bessey Clamps, half price <sigh> here they are with the three waiting for me when I got home:

Really nice, well built with a really fast heavy copper coated ACME Thread. I too took advantage of the MSC deal on the Kant Twist clamps. I will see how I get on with them and if I like them, next time they go on special I will buy more.
The Bessey clamps mean business though.

I've been eyeing up those Bessey G clamps, but I do recall somebody on here had an issue with a couple of batches of wonky ones - have you had a chance to use them, how do you rate them? I take it that’s a 4” and a 6”.
They look quite similar to the old Record 121 pattern which I really like.
