Who makes good C Clamps?

Hey everyone!! So...

I decided that sometime here soon I want to get some nice "C" Clamps. I have a handful of cheapies that are the 3" size, and I want to find some bigger/better ones.

I looked at all the offerings from Lowes and Home Depot, none of which really impressed me. Lowe's "BESSEY" clamps look "acceptable* to me, even tho they market them as "light duty" and they're from China. Home Depot's "HUSKY" clamps are nearly identical to the bessey's, just with a lower quality messy looking finish and the threaded rod parts were not square with the clamp in the ones I checked out last night. I suspect they're Bessey's that didnt pass quality control, but honestly, IDK.


I want to buy some nice 8" clamps, and maybe some 6" ones. I don't even know where to look. My school used "WILTON" clamps, but the only ones I've found sell for $50-$125 online and I think they're nice, but not nearly *that* nice.

I'd really like to find some good USA made ones. What brands/names should I be looking at? I havent found a lot. If you were looking for some nice "C" clamps, what would you look at?

Unfortunately I don't really have time to go garage saleing, I know thats usually the best option here lol. Thanks in advance...
