    Souce for cheap F-clamps?

    I am in need of a bunch of 6" F-clamps. 30-40 of them. Cheapish imports are OK, I don't need nor can I afford Jorgenson or Bessy clamps. Anyone have a source for a quantity buy at a good price?

    I purchased mine at Harbor Freight the problem is you need to pick them out yourself to make sure the fixed anvil is at 90 degrees or very close as the casting isn't always straight. I actually had one of the employees down on the floor opening boxes & checking clamps.
    The one's Bill has pointed to looks to be the same quality. Mine have worked out well, I've only had one slip & I took it apart & turned the bar end for end & riveted it back together works fine.

    I found them too, so far can't beat that price. Think I need to figure out how many I want and order them. If shipping doesn't kill it!
