Rockler introduces the new heavy-duty f-style bar clamp. The new Rockler F-Style piston clamp provides more power, is faster and easier to use. Rockler is confident in the quality of their new clamps because they include a lifetime guarantee.
Rocker Woodworking and Hardware is celebrating its 62nd year as a family-run business and is the nation’s premier supplier of specialty hardware, tools, lumber and other high-quality woodworking products. The Rockler F-Style piston clamp was developed in partnership with Piher. Piher is a Spanish clamp maker known for quality and innovation.
Regardless of the trade or industry, you have to take notice when two companies synonymous with quality and industry knowledge come together to create a new product. Whether you call the F-Style piston clamp from Rockler a new product or just making a better mousetrap, you have to give kudos to Rockler and Piher. By providing better tools, the worker is enabled to turn out better product and increase their efficiency. We can’t wait to get our hands on some of these clamps and put them to the test.
Features of the Rockler F-Style Piston Clamp
Rockler offers the new piston clamp in 16”, 24” and 32”. These clamps include a toothed brake that actually grabs the bar and a flip-up ratcheting handle provides more leverage. Cold-rolled steel bar is used for increased strength and durability. The enclosed double-threaded piston-style mechanism keeps glue from clogging the threads. This also allows for faster clamp head advancement and tightening. The danger of misalignment and marring are drastically reduced because the head advances without rotating, hence any twisting torque has been eliminated. With a clamping force of more than 2,000 pounds, the Rockler F-Style piston clamp is a great fit for most jobs.
“The Rockler Piston Clamp by Piher is a terrific addition to our clamping lineup,” said Steve Krohmer, Rockler’s vice president for merchandising and product development. “It’s built for power, and with a 43⁄4″ throat depth, it’s well-suited to applications requiring greater reach than is possible with a typical pipe clamp.”
Along with the release of the F-Style piston clamp, Rockler is also introducing Clamp Pads (sold separately). These pads provide additional protection against marring and they are designed specifically for the piston clamps.
