I bought a set of these to use in my workshop and out in the field. They were a great bargain when they were on sale. They dropped right into my carpenter's tool crib. My workbench has a very thick wood top surface and these clamps open up wide enough to clamp to the thick wood members. I even used them to clamp some wood landscaping timbers together when I drilled holes to pound rebar stakes through. These are a must have for a good tool collection.
A Craftsman Hand Tool made in China!
The Armstrong clamps are made in the U.S.A., cost a lot more, but worth it!

I inherited over a dozen Craftsman 6 Inch Ductil Iron C-Clamps from my father, plus a few other shapes and sizes of C-Clamp. They have definitly stood up to the test of time. Over the years we had used these clamps for many different projects, and except for the jaw width or the throat depth not being big enough, they have served wonderfully. I myself have used and abused thes clamps numerous times, and only had three failures. One I managed to torque so bad the jaws bent out of alignment. With a large bench vise and an even bigger pry bar I was able to straighten it out. The other two failures involed the swivel cup coming off. One of these was a direct exchange down at the local Sears. The other I was able to re attach the cup and the clamp is servicable as ever. Mine were all made in the U.S.A., I am not sure how the "new" Chinese made clamps will work, but will be giving two of them the same treatment as my old ones in the next coming weeks. I will let you know how they work out.
After breaking most of my 6" harbor fright C-clamps I started to buy craftsman's 6" C-clamps and have swapped almost all of them out by now. So far I haven't broke a single craftsman C-clamp, and I have abused them :) I would say if you need some good 6" C clamps without breaking the bank these are for you!
I first purchased my C-Clamp over twenty years ago. It has worked well for me ever since. However, the 'wobble' side of the clamping surfaces finally gave away. The part where it attaches to the threaded rod separated. I took the C-Clamp back to Sears to test their return policy. Sears did not have the size that I returned so the clerk gave me the next size up! Thanks!
The Craftsman 6 Inch Ductile Iron C Clamps are strong and tuff clamps and do not distort when pressure is applied to them. I used them when I am welding on projects. I used them when clamping broken components down on mower decks while repairing them. I used them while doing some wood laminations. I even used them while doing some work on my son's boat. You can use these on almost anything and they will hold whatever you are needing held. MY last project that I used them on was when I was working on my shop extention. They held my C perlin perfectly while I welded my clips onto my pipe frame.
The Craftsman 6 inch Ductile Iron C Clamp is a tough clamp, that sees alot of work time in my shop. I use this clamp mostly on my iron and welding projects, but to use them on other projects to. I bought these clamps when I started an add on on the front of my shop anbd needed something to hold my c-perlin on the structural 2 7/8 inch OD pipe frame. When I have the clamp tightend on my structural pipe, they also make a good grounding point for my Lincoln AC 220 welder. I also use these clamps when I am butt splicing two pieces and use angle iron and a couple of these clamps to keep my pieces straight, while I am welding on them. Them clamps are strong and hold my work pieces very well and do not slide around, while I am working. They hold their shape very well while they are under pressure and do not disort when pressure is applied. tough clamps to have around the shop and have many uses for them.
