Default What Types Of Clamps Are These?

Seasons Greetings,

Hi what type of clamps are these, what are they called, or can they be called? In case I have tracking them down in the UK, any idea where in the UK I can buy them?
Cheers.

Hi, no if you look at my posted picture number 2 you will see it only has one arm. The Lee Valley has 2 one at front and one at back.
Found these just now Ebay UK item number 160778476468 but the Lee Valley design.
Cheers.

Hi again, sorry I think you were right after all just seen a clearer picture and they seem pushed forward on the ratchet thingy, so looks as only one arm.
Ebay item number 261281145326
Merry Xmas

I have some of these which I got from Axminster a while ago. I have just checked their web page and they do not seem to have them anymore. I am not surprised as they do have some shortcomings and if you look at the Axminster web for Hold down clamps there are some much better alternatives.

Asim; that thread was from 2013...a year ago.
The thread dates are posted at the left, just above the registered user's name.
No harm in replying; it's simply that if the question was time sensitive, the OP is long gone.
