Nice wide surface area for holding panels and sheet metal together for welding. This flat edge continuous version gives the widest clamping area for least distortion. If you aren't welding every day you don't want to be spending too much on occassional use tools, but this item is a great price/quality compromise. The whole tip edge meets smoothly, the clamping is firm, there is no distortion of the shaft under force so they don't twist off and the tensioner adjuster isn't so stiff you need another pair of grips to turn it! Recommended and good value.
Grip overall width 100mm and complete tool length 245mm.
