Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) March 30, 2009
Quick release clamps have been around for a long time (long enough for international plastic toy manufacturers to make bad copies of them and flood the market!). But no-nonsense tool maker LIDWIG from Sydney Australia has come up with the next generation of clamps that have raised the bar and sent woodworkers buzzing.
The X Clamp range is the quickest repetitive clamp available. Adjust it to the required clamping pressure and thickness and then simply squeeze the handles to clamp over and over using just one hand. Even while under great pressure you just need one hand to lock the clamp, and one finger to release it.
The patented woodworking clamps cover various applications and stand to top the market leaders by successfully combining the best elements of a number of well-established design principles.
Made from composite glass resin or structural grade aluminum - giving professional and industrial grade strength.
No weight sacrifice is made to achieve the above strength making the clamps light-weight and easy to handle.
The design mechanism clamps at 6 times the pressure you apply. A simple one handed squeeze and you can easily hang your own body weight off these gutsy little power clamps!
Easy clamping needs easy release. Watch enthusiasts who are posting YouTube videos to see how the clamps really are released with ONE FINGER.
Repetitious clamping is so easy with the preset slide bar and/or winding knob. Set once, then just squeeze the handles to clamp repeatedly.
Vibration proofing means the bar won't slide down and reset the clamp while in use. So routing on a bench won't disengage the X clamp, ever. Simply knock timber into position when you need to without the clamps disengaging and falling off.
Woodworkers are already blogging and vlogging about them. The editor at popularwoodworking.com calling them 'a new concept in woodworking clamps' and thewoodwhisperernetwork.com testing them at 100kg plus. Stu from stusshed.com has also demonstrated a number of applications.
Welders are also impressed as the glass/resin composite material means welding splatter won't stick to the shaft and impede operation. The clamps are impervious to heat and safe for welding.
Retailing from US$20.99 the clamps readily make themselves an indispensable addition to your workshop. Buy clamps.
Taking the innovation to new areas, Lidwig also manufacturer their own proprietary extension lead hanger using principles from the clamp development.
