Tweco gets my vote every time, and I think even GNAP's use Tweco

Thanks for the quick reply. The reason I thought that clamp would be a good one is because that is what Jamie recommended on Welding Tips and Tricks.

Nick

could you give us a link to where Jamie recommended that one??

this is as much as I could find..

http://www.weldingtipsandtricks.com/...uggestion.html

it refers to the clamp that comes with the Miller Dynasty 350.....

FFIW... I took the factory supplied clamp off of my Dynasty 350 and chucked it...
replaced it with a Bronze Tweco like in my pic... They are simple, reliable, and really durable... the best mousetrap for my money..

Didn't mean to bark ........ was in shock when I looked at the pic...
that thing does not look like it would do the job reliably for very long...
even with the fancy waffled copper shoes in the jaw..
does not look well made..
not up to the standards we have come to expect from Miller....
but then again...
they have been doing a lot of queer things lately...
take the case of the nonexistent Dynasty 280 for instance...
would hate to see you waste your money..
