Bessey’s clamp extenders let you use a small clamp to do large jobs. They made the extenders to be used in conjunction with their DuoKlamps, but they should work with just about any clamp larger than 6″. The extenders can be used to clamp workpieces up to 65″ with 260 lbs. of force, or you can reverse the jaws to spread up to 70″.

Replace the pad on the spindle of any of Bessey’s cast iron, Omega, or all-steel screw clamps with their clamping force indicator and you can tell instantly if you’ve applied the correct amount of pressure. As you increase the clamping force, the red disk starts to disappear inside the indicator; when it disappears completely and you only see green you’re using the right clamping force.

Bessey’s Maxis VarioPivot clamping system extends the versatility of your bar clamps by attaching them to your bench, somewhat like the previously covered VersaClamp.  It works best with Bessey’s K-Body Clamps, but they claim the system works with other bar or pipe clamps too.

The two C-clamp-like ends attach to your bench top and capture any length of bar clamp between them. The clamps fit into rotating holders which can lock the bar clamp at any angle between 0 to 270°.  The holders rest in an L-shaped track, which allows you to position the bar clamp along the side of the bench or over the work surface.

The Maxis VarioPivot Clamping system comes with the two c-clamp ends and runs about $50. You’ll need to provide your own bar clamp.

It’s not slight of hand; it’s a magnet. Wave Bessey’s MagWand over your swarf (metal shavings and waste) and poof! It’s gone — well, at least from the work surface. Now it’s stuck to the MagWand.

This 22″ long magnetic wand attracts up to 12 lbs. of magnetic metal waste so you don’t have to pick it up by hand and risk cutting yourself. You can wave or roll the wand over your work surfaces. To dispose of the waste, pull back the sliding magnetic insert and the waste will fall into the scrap bin.

You’ll pay somewhere in the $30 to $45 range for Bessey’s MagWand. Has anyone tried a less-expensive homebrew model?

If you’re building fine furniture, you probably won’t want Bessey’s timber framing clamp — unless you’re really into the distressed look.  See, in place of a fixed jaw these clamps have a spike you drive into the wood.  They’re definitely meant for framing applications where a few gashes won’t be noticed.

If you thought one adjustable jaw on a spring clamp was good, does that mean two are better?  Bessey must think so because they’re introducing a spring clamp in the VarioClippix line with two adjustable jaws.
