brilliant mitre clamp
28 Mar 2016
By
, wincanton
" For a cheap bit of kit, this mitre clamp was effective enough to hold a 2m length of 5mm angle iron against a horizontal member while being cut with an angle grinder and it didn't shift at all. I've had other more expensive mitre clamps which were far less effective. Brilliant bit of kit. Highly recommend. "

Good product to use.
29 Oct 2014
By
, Birmingham
" Bought 4 of these to set out drawers for the shed. What can you say provided the cuts are accurate these give you the right angle every time. Saved loads of time.
The only downside are the handles, they really do let the product down, they are plastic whilst the rest of the mitre is cast alloy, had to take 1 back for replacement.

" great value for money
works well just don't expect it to do all the work for you, after undoing clamp you will still need to check your angle is correct.

Good quality product
20 Jan 2016
By
, Essex
" I bought two of these clamps to help line up joints in a cupboard I am making. Everything about these clamps is good quality except (as other reviewers have noted) the handle, which is made from a plastic material formed directly onto the end of the threaded rod. However, you do not need to pull the clamp very tight in order for it to do the job, so if you are careful and don't tighten excessively the handle will probably last. "

Use with care
16 Nov 2015
By
, Oxfordshire
" There are many ways to fail to get good results with mitre clamps in all price brackets.
This one is a budget model, but I'm getting decent results when using them. The casting is square and this clamp will hold the work square if it's set up carefully.
Best results come from using these four at a time and joining all four corners simultaneously.
If using two or one at a time you need to be sure the work piece ends not in the clamp(s) are supported at exactly the same height as the ends in the clamp and that you check the joint is square as you tighten it. Fail to do this and the result can be a squiffy joint. But that's true of many mitre clamps including the considerably pricier Stanley ones I also have.
Using one clamp on it's own can work, but it's easy to get a fractional error in each joint and find the the wood doesn't meet up when you get to the last joint.
The four of these I have are several years old, have been used on a good number of occasions but not constantly. They are hung up out of harms way when not in use and not overtightened. So far nothing has broken on any of them.
For the price, used appropriately, I find these a useful piece of kit. "

" I purchased two of these to hold in place mitred pieces of oak while the glue dried. They did the job perfectly. I have another corner clamp costing twice the money which is only half as good: these are excellent value for money, well made and easy to use. "

light duty but does ok
3 Jan 2014
By
, Aberdeen
" This is a light duty clamp, so don't expect too much, especially considering that is costs less than a tenner. Hence, i've reviewed it as such!
I've used it for mitre joining and welding some small sections of 1" angle and box section and it does just fine. I wouldn't use if for heavy 2" box, 6m lengths or anything like that or clamp it up extra tight. If you want a clamp for that, you'll have to pay 10 times the price for a heavy duty cast item! "

not fit for purpose
8 Apr 2015
By
, Suffolk
" Not satisfied with this product, handle broke first time I used it, impossible to hold two pieces of wood at the same time and also found wood was not joined at right angles. After putting a set square on the clamp I discovered it was out of square. Would not recommended this product.
Clamp was returned to the store and was given a full refund, so not all bad.

" This product does not work very well because it is almost impossible to keep two pieces of wood immobile while tightening the clamp. It really needs two vices set at right angles for this to work properly. My two mitre clamps have been sent to the recycling bin. "

" Handle broke off the very first time I used it to do an edge join on 2 600mm long bits of wood - hardly a demanding application
Plastic handle immediately cracked down the length and came off of the screw drive, then spent 10 minutes trying to get the thing off my workpiece.
Not sure who designed this, or what they were thinking when they did, but I wouldn't bother with it... "
