  Different sizes of F-clamps are available  

F-clamps are available in many different sizes.  

 

Always use an F-clamp which is large enough to support the workpiece, otherwise there will be a risk of damaging the screw. 

 
         
  Sizes of F-clamps   Similarly to the majority of clamps, an F-clamp’s size and clamping capacity is determined by its jaw opening and throat depth.  
         
     

Jaw opening

 
  An F-clamp can have a very wide jaw opening  

The jaw opening of a clamp is how far the mouth of the jaws can open. 

 

The jaw opening capacity of an F-clamp depends on the length of the bar. 

 
         
  F-clamp jaw opening sizes  

The smallest jaw opening available is 80mm (3″ approx.). 

 

The largest jaw opening available is 1500mm (59″ approx.).  

 
         
     

Throat depth 

 
  The throat depth of an F-clamp is important   The throat depth is how deep the jaws of a clamp are, and is measured from the top edge of the jaws to the bar.      
         
  Clamp throat depth  

The smallest throat depth available is 50mm (2″ approx.). 

 

The largest throat depth available is 175mm (7″ approx.).
