Default Wilton Clamps

After hearing Cutters review of the Wilton C clamps he got, I ran across these at an welding shop auction today and thought they would be a great addition to my clamp collection. They look to be fairly new.

I got them all for $40. If I recall correctly that is less than the cost of one. I have to admit they do seem to be very well made and should last me a long time. Thanks Cutter.

Oh! I forgot to say 'You're welcome' but I don't know for what that I did.
Can't tell which clamp those are but they're certainly worth $13.33 apiece.

There is 406 cast in the side of the clamp.

Well, there are several possible matches for 406 but they probably list for about $45 apiece.

Let me be the first to say you suck, I was always lucky there was a co. that I did service work for and if I needed a clamp I'd get it from there crib and when I'd try to return them crib guy would say no couldn't take them back, asked what to do with them said he didn't care , asked if I left them there what would happen try it he said , I put them on the counter and turned away heard this noise and turned back and asked where are they he said in the rubbish barrel , I reached in and took them out and home, ended up with about a dozen clamps over many trips there. Forgot to add there were 4", 6", 8" and some 12" and they were all Wiltons.

Chris, you did OK. I've gotten some new forged 12" clamps for $8. each at a "fell off the truck" place in the past (should have bought them all), and more recently some Armstrong 6" forged clamps for $12 each, but not copper plated. And a couple of 6" Hargrave forged clamps from ENCO for about $12, but they are now Chinese.

I counted my C clamps while hanging the new ones. I am up to 47 now and still looking for more. Someone told me once you can never have too many C clamps. I think it was Cutter.
