Pros: Durability, Overall Quality
Far better than the standard composite clamp
This is far better than the aluminum-ABS composite clamp that comes with Gatco sets. I have been using my broken composite clamp held together with JB Weld for long enough, time for a replacement. One thing that really surprised me- when held back-to-back with the composite clamp, the angle guides don't line up- so I looked closer, and saw that the composite clamp is 1/2 slot off symmetry! WTF? The new aluminum clamp, by design, is absolutely symmetric. It holds well and I'm not afraid to clamp down with the screws. Mounted in a bench vise, it's a poor-man's Wicked.
