    Gents,

    anyone knows what's the name of this clamp, other than the obvious 'cantilever clamp':

    http://www.mscdirect.com/product/details/08087058

    ?

    I've tried searching for 'cantilever clamp' but couldn't find anything in the UK, so I'm guessing there's a different British name.

    Regards
    dsc.

    Spelling mistakes are not intentional, I only seem to see them some time after I've posted

    These are often called "Kant Twist" clamps, some nice ones available on eBay too.

    Thanks for all the suggestions and tips.

    Lee I've had a look on ebay but failed to see anything nice, what phrase did you use for your search?

    Cheers,

    The postage is twice the price of the clamp, looks like msc is the only one that comes up for the UK but i could have swore i have seen before from the usual tool suppliers.

    I've seen it on a few US machining videos but it doesn't look like it's too popular outside of US. I'll keep checking ebay, something might show up at some point.

    Cheers,
