What are toolmaker's clamps?
A clamp is a fastening device used to securely hold objects together, to avoid any movement or separation.
Toolmaker's clamps are designed to hold work together during drilling, tapping and other machining operations.
They are different from regular clamps in that they are smaller, stronger and used for precision clamping.
They are known as 'toolmaker's clamps' because they are often used by toolmakers when machining or clamping small components.
They are also known as 'parallel clamps' due to the parallel jaws, and sometimes 'machinist's clamps' because they are used for a variety of machining operations.
