Kreg isn’t making a big production about changing the grips on the clamps in their pocket hole tool line, but you can pre-order the improved clamps to be shipped this week from Woodcraft and next week from McFeely’s.

Except for their new corner clamps, Kreg is adding comfort grips to all the clamps in their pocket hole tool line — that includes their bench clamps, right-angle clamps, and face clamps.  Since there’s no press release, we scraped this information together from other sources, and we haven’t run across the reason for the upgrade.  Is it a ploy to further differentiate their products, or are they doing it in response to customer feedback?

It looks like the new clamps will be priced similarly to the older versions, but we found a few cases, like the right-angle clamp, where they bumped the retail price up a few dollars.

Holding it down — that’s half the battle when it comes to woodworking.  (“Knowing” is the other half, right?)  Just keep it still.  Think of the KREG Universal Bench Klamp as a pair of adjustable locking pliers mounted to the workbench.  This idea is that the system allows you to apply an incredible amount of pressure to the joint line.
