    @doobie, as a thought – check out the Bandy clamps from Rockler.

    http://www.rockler.com/rockler-bandy-clamps

    But those don’t really apply any real clamping pressure along the edge. They’re more for just holding thin pieces while you tack up with a nail gun. I’d still be reaching for my bar clamps in most cases using those.

    Watch the video on the clamp. Rockler claims the clamp will apply pressure. I thought you might have an interest.

    If you do a lot of pocket hole joinery, I would recommend these little clamps from Rockler. We have several in the shop and they come in handy in some situations where other clamps don’t seem to work.

    man is that a handy looking little clamp I have never see those here in my Marketplace. I will have to check online and see if I can get those. What exactly do you call those clamps so I can search them online?

    Interesting, do you put the clamp in one hole while you put a screw in the other and them switch or can you drive a screw in the hole that the clamp is in?

    @jamiem that’s a neat clamp have you ever used the Kregjig pocket hole clamps? It looks like they do the same thing, so I’d be interested to know how they compare. This one looks like it’s probably less expensive though. Everything from Kregjig seems a bit pricey.

    @DirtyWhiteBoy I believe they are just called pocket hole clamps. I know Rockler sells them, Elite Tools in Canada, and you can find them on Ali Express too.

    @Clev08, You put the clamp in one empty hole and screw using the other holes. You can’t put this clamp into the hole that you want to screw into.

    Ok thanks JM We don’t have any of those stores here so I found them on the big A…For under 20 bucks each I think I will get a set.

    @cmeyer25, I have used the Kreg pocket hole clamps too, but I prefer these as they are easier to handle and clamp with one hand. The Kreg version is helpful when you are clamping a panel in the middle of a long board, where as the Rockler clamp isn’t designed for that.

    @jamieM that’s good to know, thanks for the info. I wouldn’t have thought the Kreg clamp would be used that way based on what I’ve seen on IG, so it was good to get some clarification.

    Interesting. Never seen those before. Myself, I rarely ever do pocket holes any longer, but I may still get a pair of those.

    @r-ice I purchased ours through Elite tools, they offer free shipping for orders over $99. I’m sure you can find them online, and Ali Express even sells them too, but I’m sure the quality is not quite the same.

    Has anyone had any experience with Yost or Woodtek parallel clamps! they are the cheapest parallel clamps have found and am thinking about giving them a try. If anyone has some helpful insight that would be great, thanks!

    Looks like it’s a knock off the Bessey Revo Jr. Almost the exact same prices I found from my local HD. The clamping force is only 20lbs different (but when they say “max” sometimes it also means a lot less in practical terms) Personally, I’d stick with Bessey.

    I agree with cmeyer25 in preferring Bessey. Here is a new product from Bessey that looks quite interesting. I will be definitely looking at these sometime soon.

    @pi_woodworker those iBeam clamps are fantastic – I’ll be writing up a review soon. Bessey sent me a pair to review, and I have to say, they are some seriously built clamps. I love the pipe clamp design without the pipe clamp draw backs. And they have a ridiculous amount of pressure they’re able to put on things.
