Pipe Clamps - Designed to fit a specific diameter (most commonly 3/4") of standard threaded pipe, these clamps are infinitely adjustable and great for edge-gluing boards.

F-Style Clamps - Similar to C-clamps, but has a wider capacity allowing for them to be used on larger scale objects without the need for a large screw.

Spring Clamps – Also known as a hand clamp, are best for quick fastening and gluing jobs requiring only light clamping pressure.

Band Clamps - Include a ratcheting mechanism that makes them good for clamping round, odd-shaped or multi-sided assemblies, ranging from boxes to chairs.
