Default Wood clamps?

Thinking about getting some wood clamps, the one hand operation kind. Are these the ones most people brag about? Shop IRWIN 4-Piece Mini Clamp Set at Lowes.com
TIA

yes they are...
but...
those minis are fragile.. start at the 6" size...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Thank you.
I had in mind to get a couple of 6" and maybe a couple of 12" for starters. That will probably be all I ever will need. If I need more clamping force I can always add a couple of "F" or "C" clamps for more pressure, just want to hold something temporarily while one hand is holding the pieces and clamp with the other.

I have a pair of the 12 inch Irwins. They get used to hold stuff, not for glue/clamping operations.

When I say hold stuff, I mean hold the work piece on the table while I cut it with a jig saw, or circular saw...stuff like that.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Stick, you must be a clamp-o-holic.

not a chance...
one type of clamp doesn't cover all bases...
some projects require only a few clamps while others need more than a lot...

FWIW... I use to have a lot of those mini clamps.. every one of them became a project causality...
and the Quick clamps pictured are stacked L to R 10 deep...

there are, shall we say, a "few" pipe clamps in the overhead rack...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...

" That will probably be all I ever will need."


Bwahaaahaaaha.... *rolling on floor in paroxysms of laughter*
Sorry Bob, that was rude of me...
Every time I go to Summit Tools I end up buying more; I see no end in sight.
I've just started using the one handed jobbies, as opposed to the traditional F clamps, and I must say I really like using them. Having said that, I can really reef down on the old F type but I dare not try that with the one-handed ones.
Short story; won't be getting rid of the originals anytime soon.
