We’ll say it again: you can’t own too many clamps.  That’s why I’m tempted to throw a twenty down just to see how many of these sub-$2 6″ bar clamps actually arrive and how long they last.  Even if you only get one use out of each clamp it’s almost worth the money.

Yeah, these F-clamps are what 50s commercials referred to as “Brand-X” (read: made in China).  But hey — even if they used lead-based paint, you know better than to suck on them, right?  It’s good to be an adult.

    According to my calculations, You’ll get 11.36 of these clamps if you throw down a twenty. Not including shipping. Now, as for how they’ll last, I would like to hear how that works out.

    I have a clamp problem. I can’t stop buying them. It may be bordering on a clamp fetish…

    If you get $20 worth, better plunk down another $20 for shipping. 🙁 Me likes clamps… Me no like shipping costs…

    Harbor Freight has a set of two 12″ bar clamps for $6. And I can get those without paying shipping.

    10 of these clamps = over $40 once you add in shipping and handling charges.

    I’ll hit Harbor Freight.
