The Jorgensen cabinet master bar clamps are ideal for flat panel, box, cabinet, frame and panel doors assemblies or any other project that requires squareness or evenly applied pressure. Large plastic jaws assure the distribution of clamping pressure over large areas. The jaws stay parallel to assure squareness and prevent work pieces from bowing or lifting. Built in clamp stand allows clamps to stand upright for one handed use and easier/quicker sliding head adjustment. The sliding head can be reversed on the bar and the clamp then acts as a spreader. Opening capacity is 30 inches, clamping faces are 3-3/4 in. height and 1-7/8 in. width, high-carbon steel bar is 1-3/16 in. by 3/8 in., screw is 5/8 in. cold-drawn steel with special, smoothly cut acme threads, large easy to grip handle, and load limit is 1,000 lbs.
  • Features multiple clutch disks made from hardened and plated round edge high carbon steel

  • Clamping face dimensions: 3-7/8 in. height by 1-7/8 in. width

  1. WoodWorker

    Purchased (2) 24 inch Jorgensen Cabinet Master Parallel clamps. 1 clamp head is not 90 degrees to the bar, which won’t allow even/parallel clamping pressure to the workpiece. Gave 2 stars because 1 of the clamps are correct so far.

  2. Dave L

    I always get great glue ups using my Jorgensen clamps. I won’t buy anything else!

  3. DavyCrockett

    I have other Jorgensen clamps and I love them. Unfortunately these failed to make par for me in quality control. I have 8 of these parallel clamps and all 8 have the same issue with the fixed head being not perpendicular to the bar. This will create uneven pressure on the glue surface and improper board alignment.

  4. Philby

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought a set of these in order to build my kitchen cabinets, a major undertaking. They worked very well in constructing the cabinet “boxes” and even better when I glued up the panels for the doors; very little warping! They made a tough job, for this amateur, much easier.

  5. Kool02

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This will be a useful tool to have in the shop. Works well, not too cumbersome to use, and can help tackle some of the bigger cabinetry projects that I have ahead of me. I think that the quality is fine for what this tool is and was what I expected from the price.

  6. DesertHobo

    Technically speaking, this isn’t a bad clamp – there are enough positive reviews to tell you that it can do a decent job holding. However, over repeated use it develops a propensity to bind up, losing its ease of use and becoming less reliable. These clamps are also notorious for getting stuck, which has happened to me enough times now that I am ready to switch over to Bessey’s more reliable, more versatile product line. Don’t take my word for it, there’s plenty of info out there (good and bad) to help you make your decision.

  7. 812 Woodcrafting

    I purchased my first set of parallel clamps a little over a year ago and after the first use for my cutting board glue ups I have purchased eight more sets with the last being only four days ago. The clamping pressure is the most even and probably the strongest out there for this particular style of clamp. Prior to my first set of Jorgensen’s I had tried many brands of clamps and I wasn’t ever fully satisfied but now I exclusively only use/buy Jorgensen clamps for my shop.

  8. Ken K

    I’ve used a lot of different parallel clamps in my shop, along with pipe clamps, bar clamps, and other options for clamping panels and other big glue-ups. The Pony Jorgensen Cabinet Master is by far my favorite. The innovative smooth bar design eliminates concerns about marring the surface with the notched bars other brands have, and it makes it much easier to clean the inevitable squeeze-out mess. These are my go-to when it’s time for glue-up.

  9. Jake_Makes_It

    I purchased these parallel clamps about two months ago, first set I have owned. I had never realized what I was missing out on. The even pressure and easy set up has improved my glue ups drastically, and more importantly efficiently. Time to upgrade and purchase some larger ones for future products! Cannot wait!

  10. John V.

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Cabinet Master clamps are the best parallel clamps I have used over the years. Other manufacturers have good clamps but the Jorgensen clamps are superior in my opinion. I have a few sets of different lengths so can handle both large and smaller projects. One difference that shines for me is the clamping surface area of the heads are larger than the competitors giving me more confidence during my glue ups. The locking mechanism itself has never failed me and is easy and smooth to set in place. They are also rugged which is perfect in a workshop where they see lots of use. I would recommend Cabinet Master parallel clamps without hesitation.

  11. SawDust

    The clamp supports itself when sitting on bench making the clamping process easy.

  12. farmered

    bought these a few month ago, they have worked great.

  13. weekendhomesteader

    My wife and I used these clamps when we built our dining room table. They where essential to making a solid tabletop. We clamped 4 2x10x10 together after applying wood glue and pocket holes. The result was a seemless tabletop that looks very professional.

    Do not skimp with cheaper clamps, these clamps are top notch!

  14. Surfingdingo

    very good clamps for cabinet making. I like them more than the Irwin parallel clamps that previously carried. They have a very smooth action and I prefer the grippy handles over the smooth wood handles on other clamps.

  15. Esteban

    Impressed at the he quality and holding strength. This tool will out live me and easy to operate with one hand. The plus is it stands on it’s side without any accessories.

  16. ZMROTU

    They say you can never have too many clamps and I’ve tried to take that adage to heart in my shop. But, the truth is, when push comes to shove… I’m always reaching for my Jorgensen parrallel bar clamps. Stout, Sturdy and Versatile Jorgensen are my go-to clamp! I can always depend on them helping to keep things square and putting the pressure where it’s needed. They are even more useful when I run out of hands-on a tricky assembly because I can evn get them in position and clamped with only one hand.
    So; I say,”You can never have too many Jorgensen clamps!”
    “Please Sir, May I have another?”
    😀

  17. JDME

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wanted to add 18″ length to my inventory of parallel-jaw bar clamps. The Jorgensen Cabinet Master fit the bill and was competively priced. The clamp is well built with comfortable easy-grip handles, and the jaws slide easily along the sturdy bar. A few twists of the handle apply ample clamping pressure, and the jaws are remain true when holding the work piece securely. The only quibble is there is a bit of manipulation needed to get the handle alignment just right to slide the moving jaw into place making one-handed adjustment awkward. (Every woodworker could use an extra hand, or two, on occasion.)

  18. Seanri528

    I needed some parallel clamps for a door and went to my local big box hardware store searching for them. Found the Jorgensen clamp and right away I could tell it was well built, felt right, and would do the job.
    It was super easy to use and the clamping pressure was phenomenal! Doors came out great and I was EXTREMELY PLEASED that I purchased them. So much so that I went back and bought 10 more! Highly recommended!!

  19. Seltek.ss

    Excellent clamping force, I like the new style handles they are very easy to grip and rotate. I have both the older ones with the maple handle and the new ones with the rubber grip. I like the parallel style clamp because it does a better job of applying the clamping force evenly without marring the workpiece. I literally have a wall of the from 24″ to 48″

  20. Ron0126

    I bought these 24″ Jorgensen Cabinet Master Parallel Clamps several months ago and primarily use them when I’m building cutting boards. Despite their heavy weight, they’re remarkably easy to use and apply strong, even pressure. I plan to purchase more and highly recommend them. Note the Jorgensen Classic Adjustable Handscrew clamps in the background too!

  21. Surfskifish

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a number of different cabinet clamps in the shop/. The Jorgensen is the clear winner and is the one I reach for first. The threads are finer on the Jorgensen, allowing more pressure with less work. The bar design makes it easy to scrape glue and clean afterwards. All in all, this is my favorite clamp in the arsenal.

  22. Ready Set Build It

    Very happy with the Clamps. I’ve wanted these for a while and for the price I couldn’t go wrong. Wish I had a few longer as well. Bar clamps are nice, but for a seamless glue up, you can’t go wrong with the Pony Jorgensen parallel clamps.

  23. Ecomma

    I own 8 of these. The acme threads are not hardened as well as the older US made Cabinet Masters. The threads begin to deteriorate after each use and dont operate as smoothly as when new. Buy Bessy.

  24. Wood Chuck Charlie

    I make several cutting boards, lazy susan’s, & tables of all sizes and shapes. They are my go to clamp. Setup is easy and with the stiff fingers I have I really like the grip I can get.

  25. Trailer park woodworker

    they seem nearly identical to the original maker, i like the rubber grips better and seem just as strong as older versions. Smooth action, a good solid clamp

  26. NYFalcon

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I enjoy using my parallel clamps for large tabletop glue ups. I even started to purchase smaller versions so that I can use them for smaller projects. My one feedback if I had to make a change on the features is that I wish there was a way to keep them with a set distance. What do I mean? When I remove the clamp the jaw immediately slides down to meet the head of the clamp. If I have my hand there it’ll be a painful moment. Solution take clamps when they are laid down instead when they are in the vertical position but that’s not always the way I position the clamps.

  27. Rudypooh42

    The cabinet clamp are great for cabinets but also anything needed for clamping, joining and glue-ups. Number #1 clamp in my shop!
