They're faster and easier to use than metal C-clamps, and they give strong pressure for instrument assembly. Slide the upper jaw into position and flip the offset cam lever to tighten the clamp. The jaws have protective cork lining. Both sizes open to 8".

Stewart-MacDonald cam clamps are crafted in the USA from sturdy maple and strong rust-resistant galvanized spring steel, for years of daily use.

Cam clamps

I recently purchased some 4-1/2" and 8-1/2" cam clamps. The smaller clamps when applied were perfect. The larger clamps could not apply the same amount of pressure as the small clamps. This is because the radius of the lever on the larger clamps is slightly too small. The larger clamps could apply enough pressure but I suggest Stewmac modify the larger clamps to equal the same amount of pressure as the smaller clamps. Having said that, I am really pleased I bought the clamps and will be purchasing some more in my next order. Also, worth noting is I hadn't realised how much faster it is to use cam clamps. I should have bought them sooner.

Indispensable clamps

These clamps work really well with strong clamp pressure. The more you get the merrier you shall be but i would recommend getting some 'camless' ones and a few minis too for different jobs.

Cam Clamps

the 3 cam clamps I bought were perfect for the bridge replacement on a Recording King RG-100 H (Hawaiian). The gtr sounds great, plays beautifully and as a result a friend bought it to reside in their beach house. Perfect home for a Hawiian gtr.

Excellent tool!

I received six of these presses and I can not otherwise give a very good opinion about them. You really covered all my expectations.

These are great

Great Cam Clamps...I wish the price was a little cheaper, but it's pretty comparable to any others I see out there

puttin' the squeeze on.

I recently built an acoustic guitar and usually "weight" the braces, but couldn't get that radius in it, so decided to try cam clamps. I got 2 of the big ones. They work great, very simple to operate. One clamps a little better than the other, but they both do a good job of squeezing glue all over the place, which is good. I am on a budget, so when it came time to put on the bridge, I made 3 small cam clamps from pine and some flat steel I found in a file cabinet. I made the levers out of bridge plate stock I had left. Total: $6 for 3 of them. I'd give 5 stars for the product, but 2 stars for the price. Why not make this stuff affordable for the struggling luthiers out there who prioritize tone and playability over profit in today's guitar market.

Great tool

Cam Clamps allow you to set just the right amount of pressure for each situation. I am ordering more!
