    BESSY knows the definition!!

    Of SERVICE!!! i had alot trouble gettin some longer clamps when i was making the sleigh bed a year or so back.. they were coming threw a distributor, that didnt know packing methods well!! had them come in broke three times 4 clamps and every time they cam in broke in some form or another.. the distributor gave up and said they weren't carrying them anymore and gave me a full refund and i ordered them one more time from another place.. they got three out of 4 to me with usable parts..enough to make 3 workable.. well i noticed that the guy with the neat shop this week had some Bessy clamps,, as in lots of them i asked how he got his there in one piece? he told me he had trouble as well and had contacted the company.. he gave me some info to contact so i wrote the person and told him my story.. i was not asking for a new clamp just relaying my info and asked about a banner for the shop and offered to pay for it.. well i got a return email that he was sending out a banner and a new head for the clamp that was broke.. i was elated and today the boxes came and he done more than just a head and banner he gave me some new gadgets for the clamps and no charge and he reaffirmed my beliefs that good company's will give good service and that any of us looking for clamps need to give BESSY a look and i give them a big attah boy for great service above and beyond!!!

    tom they look like a great idea,, they go one the jaws of the clamp and distribute the pressure across a wider area..they go at 90 degrees to the main jaws.

    I love it when a plan comes together. See the woodworking gods are smiling on you today.

    If Bessey is good but Larry have you looked at the Jet version. I like the quick release lever Jet has.

    Great service though and that has to count for something today.

    Maybe the day will come when others realize the benefits.
    cheers

    That's good service indeed. I'm partial to the yellow Gross Stabil clamps, but they're no longer made, so I've got some Besseys on the rack, too.

    Good things sometimes happen to good people. This is an example of one of them. I'm glad it worked out for you Larry. Those are some nice clamps.
