In Detail

Separate clamp heads, offer complete flexibility in the choice of both length and material for the bar. Use timber for lighter weight and ease of working or metal box section for the ultimate in rigidity. Our clamp heads are cast iron and steel and feature an ingenious elongated pinhole, which improves the clamping performance. Pressure to the jaw faces drives the clamp heads down against the bar with equal force, maintaining the jaws at 90° to the bar. The maximum bar width is 25 mm and the depth is unlimited (within reason!).

Poor quality casting

I have broken 3 of the 4 sets that I bought - the castings snapped under a reasonable load. Axminster replaced the first to break. The pins fall out annoyingly. Not as good as my old Record clamp heads which are 30 years old and have never failed.

Good Head Clamp Sets, But........

Good value if you buy 4 sets or more, Service From the Basingstoke store was exceptional (first time visit).
The store was well laid out, when browsing it did feel a little cramped, but i guess there is only so much gear you can fit into a store.

The head sets are Ok, but a few niggles (All mentioned in previous reviews),

1. There are no securing pins for the bar that hold them in place and if you turn them over the heads can fall off, not a biggie but annoying the less.

2. The faces on both are a bit rough to say the least, Axminster need to keep on top of quality for these.

3. The idea of a Slanting elongated hole for locating pins are very good, However you will need to use some box steel to get the full benefit.

4. Overall I'm please and will be getting more sets.

Further my earlier review, in extended use the long tommy bars proved to be really annoying and so inconvenient I had to cut them down almost by half, which meant a re-threading job -- a total pain and so unnecessary. My old Marples clamp heads ( a couple of quid at a boot fair years ago) tighten as solid as a rock with tommy bars which aren't much thicker, or any longer, than a three inch nail. And again, further use has shown that using these clamps vertically is nothing like as straightforward as ones with holes rather than angled slots. I'd say this product needs re-thinking.

well made, but . . .

These seem solid and well made, but:
(1) the retaining pins aren't drilled to take a small pin or screw to stop them falling out whilst you're setting the clamps up, which is a real pain because they do fall out easily even though I drilled close-tolerance holes in my timber beam. I've now got to do that myself -- not particularly difficult but it shouldn't be necessary.
(2) The slotted holes seem to make it more difficult to know when you're tight enough. With round holes you know immediately, but with these you have to check the workpiece to see if it's adequately held rather than feeling it through the tommy bar. Which makes me think there's a possible risk of overtightening and cracking the heads.
(3) A brief note on required distance between holes and also where to drill them could have been useful; I drilled mine to hit the middle of the angled slot, which means you don't have to worry too much about whether you've got the distance down from the top of the beam exactly right, but I'm not sure if that's the most efficient place. It does seem to sit the clamp down onto the beam when it's horizontal, as in a glue-up, but it's less successful when it's vertical. Clamp heads on a short beam can be really useful in holding stuff onto the bench and the angled slots make this a fiddly operation.
(4) The tommy bar is longer than it needs to be and can get in the way in some situations. The retaining cap does come loose but I wouldn't use superglue as you might have occasional need to remove it, if only to insert a temporary shorter one. A scrap of plumber's tape, maybe, or even a bit of fine thread?
On balance, good value for money but if I were buying again I'd opt for a traditional version.
Usual superb service from Axminster: speedy, affordable. They've got my vote.

I bought five sets as none of my sash clamps are not big enough. The cost of 5 sets was less than one clamp big enough to do the job.
They did the job with out any problems, only slight niggle is that the bar you fit through the end of the screw bar in the head has a screw thread and nut on the end. One of them fell off twice whilst doing up the clamp! If you buy some of these super glue the threads when you fit the bars otherwise you could be driven mad by them falling out as you tighten the clamp!
