I was at my local borg (Bunnings) today and came back with a 1/2" thick heavy smooth rubber mat 600 x 1200mm.



This will be great for my workbench when assembling furniture.

Yesterday I bought these kick clamp set

They are in systainer.

They are pretty lightweight. Not so much clamping force, but just right for finishing work or clamping stuff..

Although I am a great fan of Bessey clamps, I really don't like their KliKlamps. They do shift the workpieces to be clamped too easily too much and too often to my liking.

[Edit: forgot to mention I have 20 of them, so I know this from first-hand experience. ]

I used to have 4 of them always in my mft systainer and i clamp everything   ...for  me they work just fine so I decided to buy some more...
Yes i clamp regular shape like wood panels plywood when I use lamello, domino, mafell ecc.

I have notice deflection in the clamp when clamping. But never broke or never lost the grip on wood.
For sure you must be careful to clamp correctly at 90 deg..or they slip away.

For glueing and clamping down complex shape I prefer for sure something stronger.

I've had that set sitting in my que for a few weeks, just haven't pulled the trigger.
I have used them before, had a few in the old shop. They seem to work just fine in lighter-duty situations, never noticed much shift with them though? The Festool ones can do that slightly too. Must be a side-effect of the mechanism?

I bought a set of the exact same type of clamp from Banggood and the holding force is very high, not as good as an F Clamp but given the size and construction difference you can really clamp them down hard I found.

i noticed that the black plastic that goes against the wood near the leverage, is quite slippy.
it looks like when you spry silicone stuff on dashboard car.
maybe add some felt pad with double-sided tape on it to prevent slipping from wood.
By the way in the end i consider them useful because of the weight, to carry around site for light work.
