Dont be "Tight" buying clamps or else youll get problems
on 7 April 2014
Purchased for general model use and never having bought clamps before, tried to get away with the cheapest around.
Unclipped the from the card and filed them for useage, as I was filing noticed that whilst the body is durable plastic and the spring is very strong , the plastic around the jaws is of a very very poor and brittle consistency, one set broke just lifting them up.
If this had happened on a model or a miniature, it could have damaged it so I file these under use on things that don't matter and look again for something with strength, but also finesse.I know it was my fault expecting finesse for buttons but hey I tried so that you don't have to.
Note to manufacturer, change the material of the jaws, tweak price, solid product.
Note to buyers, if your clamping something these cannot damage, fine, also be aware the join may move when the jaws break, distorting the bond you are attempting to achieve.
