Both feature an automatic, continuously variable adjustment to different workpiece heights and widths, while the clamping force remains virtually unchanged, according to the company. They provide a clamp force range of 25 to 550 lbs. and have a holding capacity of 700 lbs. They also feature a 1” x 2-1/8” handle and 2-1/4” x 2-1/2” flanged base plate designed for use with 1/4” or M6 fasteners. The horizontal toggle clamps come with either a 2” or 2-3/4” opening, while the push/pull clamp has a 1” opening. Contact: Bessey Tools. Tel: 800-828-1004. www.besseytools.com
