Broken Jet Clamp Handle
« on: April 28, 2015, 10:38 PM »
I have a broken handle on one of my Jet 82" clamps, has anyone had any luck replacing one?

I'm not sure how it broke because I haven't used the 82" clamps yet and I did not drop them. Anyway, I went to move them and notice that the handle was broken. I prefer the Bessey clamps, but over the Christmas holiday I picked up some Jet clamps at 50% off. It's unfortunate that Jet does not sell replacement parts, but I believe Bessey does. Any help would be appreciated.

I tried to obtain a replacement handle.  I was unsuccessful.  However I did replace the handle with a dowel rod.  Used a handsaw to cut some groves in the wooden handle.  It works fine.

I have had a couple do that. If you look closely on the sticker it should say Lifetime Guaranty. Mine did and they did through my local dealer.
