I have a question about "heavy duty C clamps". By these, I do not mean regular clamps, but ones with extremely thick (in relation to their length) bodies. They are much heavier than would be required to simply hold some parts together to be welded, or worked on. Those must have some special uses, and I cannot think of any.
ExamplesThe one below is the one I am looking at (cleaned up one today), it seems to be a poor man's press: With the load capacity of 27,500 lbs, it can develop 12 ton force.
Who would need that in a clamp?
Have you ever needed one?i
