I hope no one kicks me in the knees for saying this but, the HF lookalike to the visegrip 11s arnt to bad for 2 pair for less then 10 dollars. Will they clamp down a 1/2" plate for a bending brake to the bench and not bend....NO... they wont work for that. But for general everyday use they work great. In the event you did happen to break one or two, just set them back and the next trip near a HF stop by and they will give you new ones. IF it says Pittsburg they will replace it, no charge. I bought a 22" long 1/2 drive breakover bar, at the check out they said if it breaks bring it back. I bought it for a reason so I didn't hold back, and its still in one piece and straight too.
My other clamps are Strong Hand clamps.

They are very expensive. I didn't find a website with pricing. The big ones and the bar clamps cost several hundred $ each, the small ones will start in the high two-digit range. But every now and then a few used clamps in good condition can be found on ebay. That's how I started my collection, I've never bought one new.
