I didn't know the Dewalt clamps are typically that much, looking at the singles.. How are they? Other than being a very reputable brand
:cool:

I still prefer Irwins.

husky clamps are a better deal with 2 more pieces - can't really screw up trigger clamps too much

I saw the Husky's a couple of weeks ago and thought that 4.5 and 6" were too small and using 2 of the 6's to make a 12 (which the Husky package mentions) seemed clunky. Ideally I'd want a 6 and 12 set so I was thinking that maybe the Dewalt would be good enough. Also I've handled the loose Dewalts in store and they feel nice, I don't know what the Husky's are like.

I want a set but I have no idea which to "pull the trigger" on.

Saw the Dewalt's today as I was interested, but found that these are the light-duty clamps. There's a medium duty set but they're $60, too rich for my blood. I found the same medium set is $35US at HD US, will probably just pick one up the next time I'm down.

I have a pair of 6" medium Dewalts I got for free from a Dewalt rep one time, and love them.

Just noticed they cancelled my order this morning for the husky clamp set .. I'm thinking stock issue but I'm not sure (was store pick up).

I compared the Mastercraft and Irwin clamps at Canadian Tire a couple weeks ago and there was a substantial difference in the smoothness of the action, design (the Irwin shaft isn't just a bar, it has an indentation that their gripping mechanism fits into), and features (Irwin end came off to reverse into spreader), and the price wasn't much different. Irwin and Mastercraft both have notched bars on their largest clamps, but Irwin has it down one additional size.

I would recommend either brand, or DeWalt or Husky, long before the Princess Auto ones. I looked at Princess Auto's clamps every time I went in for like 6 months, and never did they have any there where the jaws actually lined up when closed. Their quick clamps also have rough action (might be fixable), and a lot of roughness and untrimmed flashing from the injection molding process.

If the jaws don't line up, the clamp will twist the work - to me, the lack of confidence in my tools alone would more than make up the $3 savings.

I guess these are ok, power tools are more of the comparison but hand tools is hit and miss.
I think your more paying for the name brand on this one though...IMO anyways
