Work great! Used these to make 44 fence panels with metal cattle panels framed out. Every panel came out perfectly square with tight corners with no real effort.

Great clamp -- easy to use and reliable
I've used these for years, with great success. My students also use them in classes -- really helps them concentrate on keeping things flush and square while practicing joint assembly.

what comes in the box, every thing in picture or not?
robert p on Apr 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes everything in the picture. The clamps slide into the body of the clamp so it can be attached to a bench top.
Will this clamp work with clamping 2 - 2&4s ?
Peter T on Mar 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it's adjustable.
Is this clamp usefull for holding big melamine pieces in order to build a kitchen cabinet?
Pablo E on Oct 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: YEs it should hold big melamine pieces. I've used these for some large pieces. They are however hard to manipulate.
Is this made in Germany or China, like all the Bessey products sold a Home Depot?
Nigel T on Jun 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Made in China printed on the package insert.
How high elevates the lumbers from a working surface at using this clamp?
Carlos Otto C on Feb 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Calipers show 1.23in, so nominally the elevated hight is most likely 1 1/4 in.
Will it hold 4x4 lumber?
Mike W on Nov 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: According to the specs:

The clamp's maximum opening is 7/8" on one side and 2-1/2" on the other side for members of different thicknesses and 1-3/4" for members of equal thicknesses. Maximum thickness at the joint is 1-1/8".

So it doesn't look like it will hold 4x4 lumber.
Would this be okay for holding quarter-round molding?
Danny O on Nov 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: In my opinion no. The clamp needs 2 parallel flat surfaces to work. It may be possible but questionable. You would be clamping onto the actual edge on one side.
What is the minimum square box dimension when using all 4 clamps at the same time?
DontDavid on Nov 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 4"
Can you buy extra mounting clamps which come with the Bessey right angle clamp?
Keith W on Aug 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Item 31373, the Rockler Universal Fence Clamps will also fit into the hole and will function in a similar manner as the mounting clamps.
The video speaks of hold down clamps. Are these included with the angle clamp?
D M on Nov 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. They are the 2 screw clamps shown in the picture.
How thick material size can you use to make a "T" joint?
Dennis R on Nov 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you open the clamp all the way the opening is just over 2 inches If you are laying a board across the clamp its
1 1/4
Will this support 2x2 (1.5x1.5), exiting thru both pass thrus? Ex. making a "T" joint
Jeff M on Jun 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The maximum opening is 1-3/16
