I have 6 of the older model K-body clamps that I got for half price when Home Depot dropped Bessey for a while. I reach for them first, and then go back to pipe clamps when I run out of K-bodies. The only complaint I have is that the surface of the bar is grooved and collects glue. After a while, the clamp doesn't slide easily because of the glue build-up. Only way I've found to get it off easily is heat it with a torch. I finally started protecting the bottom clamps with paper while gluing, but that adds another layer of complexity to the situation.
Anybody have a better solution?
