A versatile F clamp with an incredible weight to strength ratio. The swivelling pad allows for clamping slightly tapered pieces and the top protector has a V groove to help clamp round objects. Made from strong forged, spring tempered steel, both options offer a throat depth of 60mm.
These Axminster Professional F clamps come fitted with hardened Acme threads for quick adjustment and high load capacity. Both jaws feature glue resistant, plastic caps to protect your work. The swivelling pad allows for clamping slightly tapered pieces and the top protector has a V groove to help clamp round objects. Workshops can get damp from time to time, this is why all Axminster Professional Clamps are passivated chrome finished to aid against corrosion. A swivel wooden handle allows maximum pressure to be applied easily.
Active clamping is when a forged steel clamp maintains its pressure, regardless of the condition of the timber. For example, if a piece of timber with a relatively high moisture content were to be clamped in a warm workshop for an extended period, there’s every chance that it would shrink. As the timber contracts, the force applied to it will remain constant as the forged clamp frame will actively move with the timber. Conversely, the pressure applied with a standard drop forged clamp will decrease as the timber shrinks.
