Many describe woodworkers and carpenters as detail-oriented, creative, quality-driven, and hard-working. In many cases, a woodworker’s traits are similar to the qualities they look for when selecting one of the most important tools of their trade – woodworking clamps. Because they are perfectionists, woodworkers choose clamps that are well made, dependable, strong and versatile. This is why woodworkers worldwide choose Pony Jorgensen clamps for all of their carpentry needs.

“Woodworkers and carpenters – seasoned veterans, pros, DIYers, and beginners alike – are known to have a focus on creating a finished product that delivers true quality. They want superior results based on the hours of hard work that they put into their creations. Pony Jorgensen also has a focus on delivering a quality product. While some competitors might cut corners in terms of the materials, this is certainly not the case with Pony Jorgensen,” said Ryan Hunt Director Vermont Sales the official agents for Pony Jorgensen in Southern Africa.” 

“They use heavy-duty materials resulting in reliable, durable tools that stand the tests of time, from the cast iron they use in their C-clamps, to the seasoned hardwood that make up their specialty clamps, woodworkers and carpenters have been choosing these quality woodworking clamps for more than one hundred years,” said Hunt

Delivering quality products is also the result of understanding customer needs. This is something that Pony Jorgensen has been focused on for decades. It is most evident when looking at the wide variety of products available based on the task that is needed. From lightweight, easy-to-accomplish at-home jobs, to larger scale, heavy-duty industrial jobs, Pony Jorgensen has a long history of providing the right tool for the job.

When it comes to product innovation, Pony Jorgensen has been pushing the envelope since the company’s inception more than 100 years ago. These days, there are many fly-by-night companies that come and go, without leaving a lasting impression on an industry. This is not the case with Pony Jorgensen. The tradition of building long-lasting, durable woodworking tools began in 1903 and has continued to present day with the production of every kind of hand tool – from bar clamps to hand and spring clamps.

Manufactured for superior performance and strength, Pony Jorgensen clamps are equally well known for their versatility. With excellent strength-to-weight ratio, their bar clamps are built with anodized aluminium to provide maximum strength without sacrificing their lightweight design. They are then finished with an orange, powder coating that is merged with a high-carbon, rust-resistant steel bar. Their C-clamps also deliver in terms of strength. This is especially true of the heavy-duty carriage C-clamps. These clamps are the most universally used general-purpose C-clamps for regular-duty industrial service. Uncompromising clamps need uncompromising materials. The only way to deliver quality woodworking tools is to use the finest possible materials for the job. They use only high-quality ductile cast iron, drop-forged, high-carbon steel, and anodized aluminium in their clamps. Zinc or chrome plating is added to many clamps for increased durability and rust resistance. Cold-drawn steel screws let you clamp with confidence.

Take their bar clamps, for example. Made from anodized aluminium and carbon steel, the quality of these tools consistently exceeds the high expectations of their skilful customers, on their specialty clamps only the finest seasoned, straight-grain North American maple wood makes it into their iconic Jorgensen hand screws, and all their seasoned hardwood clamp handles are meticulously shaped for maximum comfort to help them feel just right. Their light duty C-clamps are made of durable cast iron with zinc plating, while the heavy-duty C-clamps are made of the strongest drop-forged steel with a cold-drawn screw for industrial use.

Quality materials, years of tradition, and product innovation keep woodworkers coming back to Pony Jorgensen year after year. It is the drive to innovate and to deliver quality products that really moves the needle in terms of earning the loyalty of their customers.

An example of product innovation is the multiple-disc-clutch design on the Jorgensen steel bar clamp, which allows the sliding head to hold securely at any point along the bar. Another instance is the development of the heavy-duty version of the original Pony pipe clamp fixture. This version comes with a longer acme-threaded screw, a wider, taller stance, and a built-in clamp hanger for more demanding projects, including industrial applications.

For discerning craftspeople looking for clamps made with the highest quality materials, unwavering reliability, and trusted strength, there is really only one choice – the original Pony Jorgensen woodworking clamps.
