    Works Good, Lasts Long Time.....

    Hey! These X-Stender's For Bessey K-Body Clamps really work great!

    At $15 it sure beats the stuffin' out of buying a $100+ clamp to get the right length.

    Great tool tip, Don. Thanks. That could solve a problem with "not enough long clamps"....

    Thanks for the report on these Don. I had my eye on them and will probably pick a couple up. Glad they work well.

    That will work GOOD, "IF" you have the new Bessy's that have the hole in the end of the bar, but all of mine are the old style and will have to be drilled, and I'll bet that will be a real BEAR to drill in that super hard bar, whatchya tink? I have done something similar with my Jorgys and a home-made rig, (since the Jorgy's always had the hole). You're right that it is cost effective, especially since the really long ones aren't used all that much anyhow.

    A cobalt bit might do the trick, then the only problem would be getting it in the right place!

    I didn't know about those either. Great solution. A few of those are going on my list.

    That's going to be one strong table base Don.

    Thanks for the tip Don. I din't know about these either.

    About half my Bessey clamps have the required hole, so I will be able to use them.
    Cheers, Frank

    Count me in the "I didn't know these existed" group.

    Thanks Don!
