After 22 years in business, we are ready to retire. We are now closing out all of our new product inventory.
We will continue to sell antiques & antique tools in retirement.
For at least the last hundred years, cabinetmakers have relied on iron bar clamps. With the advent of aircraft grade aluminum clamps, we feel that those heavy iron bar clamps are obsolete. The aluminum bar clamps we offer here are made with the finest quality aircraft grade aluminum, making them extremely strong, without the cumbersome weight of iron clamps. If you need any more clamping force than these clamps can provide, which is about 1000 pounds, then you need to go back and fit your work better, or you will be setting up internal stresses in your work that will cause problems down the road. Universal Clamp Company was bought by Dubuque Clampworks and these clamps are now all made in Iowa along wth their famous hand-screw clamps. They were originally made in California, but that is now some years ago. The quality of all Dubuque Clampworks products is truly unparalleled. Trust us on this one, these are the best and most useful bar clamps that any cabinetmaker could own.
