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!
These clamps are stout and well made. Very good value for the price. The swivel end is not a cheap stamping found on junk C-clamps. Don't expect to have any problems with these
Sure I could have bought this item somewhere else but when I look back at my grandfather's tool set and father's tool set I always find a functioning Craftsman C Clamp. That's why I purchased one of my own and have been satisfied with my purchase since.

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!
