    Default Best Hinge Clamps?

    Hello,

    am brand spanking new to the group and am getting ready to build a vacuum table press... I have done textile printing for the last 14 years but am wanting to branch out into flat stock.I am wondering if there is a "best" hinge clamp to get for a Vacuum table press? or are they pretty much the same... I have not had much experience with the hinge clamps...only the bar type clamps on the multi color manual presses..
    any info would be greatly appreciated..

    thanks,
    Todd

    i've had decent success with just the speedball hinge clamps. i'm sure there are some really nice ones out there with micro-registration and whatnot, though.

    if you are willing to get the good stuff contact the user "andymac". He has a company that makes a set of REALLY nice hinges.

    I'm currently using adjustable height Sea Jay clamps. They're great and allow me to print on really thick wood bring it on GP

    So, I am assuming these are pretty solid then? I looked into getting a pair to print on Guitar Pedal casings, but judging by the photos they appeared to be "janky."

    Lawson is just a 20 minute drive but $60 is a lot for me to throw down on something I know nothing about.

    Urban Dictionary: Janky

    I think I picked it up from Scooby Doo. Or, was that "Jinky."

    i always used to say "jankity" - kinda like rickety, but with some extra "jank".

    Urban Dictionary: jankity

    those Sea Jay clips look appealing, but yeah, $60?? i thought jiffy clamps were expensive enough at $40. but shit, if they do the job well, might be worth it. i think the highest substrate i can print on with jiffy clamps is 3/4" + 1/8" off-contact.
