Great selection. I couldn't agree more on the "Quick-Grip" Clamps. I have six that I bought over 20 years ago and they are going strong. For Pipe clamps and bar clamps I have had pretty good luck with the inexpensive ones from Harbor Freight. I use the Pipe clamps for jigs. I made a version of a work-mate out of laminated 2x material.
But the cheap Quick-grip style clamps at harbor freight and the tool tables at farm and ranch stores have always broken on me. The only clamps I use that you didn't mention are picture frame corner clamps. They are great for face frames on cabinets to keep things nice and square… but they have fallen out of favor. I don't see them in the stores much any more.

Very interesting video. Thanks for sharing.

Grab some of the screw clamps you can pick them up cheap they have a multitude of uses

Hi Eric
Very nicely presented . Thanks very much.
Another clamp worth a look at is the Kant twist clamps. They come in a range of sizes , from tiny to quite large. These clamps are great where the thing you need to hold is small, or space is restricted – allows you to have great clamping pressure in tight places.

An interesting selection of clamps and god tips.

Instead of the expensive Veritas Clamps, I use Holdfasts and I love them. Here is a link to the ones I have. I added a piece of leather at the end to avoid marking https://www.toolsforworkingwood.com/store/item/MS-HOLDFAST.XX/Holdfasts_by_Gramercy_Tools

#5 looks like the edge guide clamp I picked up at Harbor Freight for around $15 and #10 looks like the one I picked up at HF for $6. If you don't mind the cheap Chinese stuff. Appreciate the review on all these clamps. So many different ones out there and nice to know how they get used.

Have you ever tried using a holdfast instead of the different surface clamps you showed? Another one you might want to add to your arsenal is a couple of spring clamps. Very fast to use for simple jobs.

Michael Davis says:

Hey Eric, not sure of costs where you are, but Ace Hardware where I live in San Bernardino mountains near Lake Arrowhead CA charges a buck a thread for standard galvanized or black steel pipe, 1/2”, 3/4”, 1”, 1 1/2” pipe for the pipe clamps. Pipe sold by the foot, a couple bucks a foot. The clamps only need one side threaded.😎

Brian Smith says:

You can never have to many clamps

David Letz says:

Thanks Eric. Glad I watched your video completely, as I was just about to ask about the wood screw clamps. Personally, being somewhat of a beginner, I use the pressure clamps most of the time.

Sapele Steve says:

Great video Eric but you forgot to mention that "one can never have enough clamps"!! 🙂

Isa Kocoglu says:

Thank you for sharing some great tips!

You need to get some microjig matchfit dovetail clamps. I use them on everything. Extremely versatile
