What are jaw pads?
|As the jaws of a clamp are commonly made from iron or steel, there is a risk of indenting the surface of a workpiece if its material is softer than that of the metal jaws. Jaw pads are, therefore, often used to prevent this from happening.|
|Jaw pads are plastic covers which are placed over the jaws, in order to prevent the clamp from damaging or marring the surface of the workpiece.|
|The pads can usually be purchased in sets so that they can be used on a number of clamps at the same time.|
