A bar clamp is a type of clamp with a frame that has a long metal bar with two adjustable clamping jaws and is designed to handle the pressure of holding heavy workpieces. It is mostly applied in cabinetmaking or woodworking to hold large and heavy-duty workpieces. The long metal bar is sturdy and is usually made of steel. The length of the metal bar also enables the bar clamp to hold wide or long pieces of works in its clamp jaws. The different types of bar clamps are pipe clamps, sash lamps, quick release bar clamps and T-bar clamps. Bar clamps are often used in pairs, and the number can increase for larger workpieces. The positioning of a bar clamp can be along the length or across the width, or in both directions if the clamping is necessary. Bar clamps
are ideal for furniture products such as doors, tabletops, chairs, and cabinets
. They can also be used for metalworking. We have a wide selection of bar clamps to suit various applications. Shop from MRO Supply.
