Swivel Handle Clamp

About This Item

Get better control over your clamping pressure with a right-angle handle. It's easier to make ever-so-slight adjustments, or really crank it down!

Comfort grip handle pivots to the upright position if things get too crowded. Heavy-duty steel construction. Great for repairing peghead breaks, laminating necks, gluing fingerboards, plus a million uses around the shop.

"I've had to shorten the wood handles on several of my Jorgensen and Bessey F-clamps, for clearance on my drill press and milling machine tables. You won't have to do that with these swivel-handle clamps. You can get several clamps as close together as you need, and still tighten them. That's the biggest reason I like them." —Dan Erlewine

Maximum opening    Throat depth   
#3704 Small   7" (177.80mm) 3-1/4" (82.55mm)
#3705 Large   10" (254.00mm) 4-3/4" (120.65mm)

TIP: Did you know you can clamp too tightly? Torque these puppies too much and you'll squeeze all the glue right out. So use your new-found power with care!

Clamping a guitar neck really tight (without damage)

Working on a 1938 Gibson lap steel, Dan Erlewine needs to clamp the neck way more tightly than usual. He comes up with a special jig by modifying a Rock-n-Roller neck rest.

Perfect clamp for applying the bridge on a concert ukulele.

By

Verified Buyer


Several years ago I purchased some small clamps designed specifically for applying the bridge on a guitar. Even the smallest size (5”) ended up being about an inch too long for an ukulele. I had to add a small piece of dowel to the bottom of this clamp but it works. I down graded it one notch because of it’s tremendous “heft.”

Perfect for bridge replacement

By

Verified Buyer


Or anything else. I waited months for these and they did not disappoint. They worked perfectly, along with the Stewmac bridge gluing caul to replace a lifting bridge on a '70's Epiphone Cabalero. The Thomson Belly Reducer took care of the lift. I put a 1 degree shim in the neck, a new rosewood bridge and a bone saddle an this little baby sounds better than new. Great products, worked perfectly.

Love these clamps!

By

Verified Buyer


From lutherie to general woodworking, I find myself reaching for these constantly. They slide freely, and are incredibly sensitive. I can crank down with just two fingers, thanks to the rubberized grips, and if I tilt the handle just a bit, I have all the leverage I could ever want.

I just came back to buy more, and find they're not available for at least a month. What gives, StewMac?

absolute fabulous clamps

Verified Buyer


I bought both sizes of these and they are my new go to clamps for anything and everything. I love how easy and precise it is to dial just the right amount of pressure in.
Now Mr. Erlewine, I think it's time for Jaws3 Fret-Press. Imagine a fret press based on the quality of these clamps, wouldn't that be just wonderful !?!?

Excellent clamps

Fantastic clamps, very well made at a fair price. Clamping pressure is adjustable in a very controlled manner. Will be ordering a bunch more in both sizes.

These clamps are great and very easy to maneuver. I'd rather have these than most clamps out there. Great buy.

Whaaat?

Why wasn't this thought of long ago? Maybe it was, but I didn't notice. Sometimes I have to get into close quarters for clamping and the ability to "bend" the handle is entirely practical. It's usefulness cannot be understated. I bought 4 right off the bat. After using them on one cabinet building project, I can easily see more of these in my shop! You can never have too many clamps...

I am remiss for I have had these for quite some time. For years my favorite slide bar clamp was a pair of 5" RICHA marked clamps found at a Flea Market.Just the right general length and weight. Now they have an equal ! The small ones are great also and I plan to add more of each soon. Thanks Stewart-MacDonald always good product. Michael Stevens
