    FYI, I just went to Harbor Freight here last week and they had a sale on their bar clamps that I believe look to be the same except gray instead of orange in color, and same specs. FWIW, their sale prices were the same as these for the same sizes. As far as the EZ action aluminum bar clamps, I couldn't say. I didn't price any of those. I may go back to HF and purchase a bunch more. I picked up six of the 36" bar clamps, two of the 24" bar clamps, and also picked up four 1/2" pipe clamp kits.

    Ron,

    Have you tried calling them? They may still honor the deal but you will have to call and ask. Darren Thomas did and was able to get 20 more middle of last week.

    For everyone that has purchased these clamps, how perpendicular to the bar is the top pad of the clamp? Like Chris Keen said, these look an awful lot like the ones from Harbor Freight. Which everyone, who has seen my tempest project, knows I am a big fan of. [​IMG] Also like Chris said, HFs are on sale until Feb. 10 at the retail stores. HF also has very handy 6" bar clamps on sale for like $1.50 each. I use these all the time to hold stuff down to my bench instead of my 5" C-clamps. The quick release of the bar clamp is really handy.

    Anyway, the ones at Harbor Freight really need to be hand picked from the retail store because a lot of the top pads are no where near perpendicular to the bar.

    For the price it really is a no brainer even if the top pad is not perpendicular but I really don't "need" these. But if the ones you have received are pretty flat, I might have to jump in and buy some! [​IMG]

    Let me know if yours are perpendicular!

    Thanks!

    Ronnie
