JULY 21, 2011 - Long known for their premium full-sized K BODY REVO parallel clamp; BESSEY® set out to produce a more compact version of this industry icon. The result of this development effort is the K Body REVO . This new product series offers full-size parallel clamp performance in a new and more compact configuration and, at a great price point.

The K Body REVO is a clear example that quality, value and performance do not always have to mean “BIG.” Once the German team came to grips with the design challenges they were able to create a physically smaller clamp but, one which still produces 900 lbs of clamping force. This truly parallel clamp uses steel drawn at BESSEY®’s own facilities in Germany and, because less steel is used, the cost of production (and the retail price point) was able to be reduced. The expectation is that this new product offering will attract those woodworkers that want a serious parallel clamping tool that is a little lighter to work with or…is a little lighter on the pocketbook or…both.

Competitive Difference:
1. Up to 900 lbs of clamping force.
2. 90 degree parallel jaws.
3. 30-40% lighter than competitive parallel clamps.
4. 20% lower retail price versus competitive parallel clamps.
5. Available sizes of 12, 18, 36 & 50 In.
6. German engineering, German steel, assembled in the USA.

BESSEY® has been a market leader in clamps since 1936. If you know clamps, you know BESSEY®. You know our reputation for quality and reliability; you know we’re 130 years of German engineering backed by the strength of our product and our reputation. BESSEY®. Simply better.
