Every Jorgensen handscrew we make is crafted to ensure maximum strength and durability. Seasoned, straight‑grain hard maple wood jaws marry with cold‑drawn steel spindles and nuts with special double‑lead threads. Together they create a handscrew clamp that holds tightly over broad areas, providing greater reach and a wider distribution of pressure than other clamps. The angle between the jaws can be adjusted to fit the work, allowing them to hold odd shapes easily. Our handscrew clamps are easy to apply and remove quickly, and they provide protection against marring of finished surfaces. Traditional seasoned hardwood handles are designed for comfort now and for years to come.
