My Bessey Uniklamps were pretty sad, all covered with glue along the bars from lots of use. They are my “go-to” clamps. So I googled cleaning them and watched a bunch of videos and read a lot of articles. Long story short, I cleaned them with mineral spirits, a soft brass brush, steel wool. Then I put some wax on them. Now they will not hold. I cleaned off the wax with mineral spirits and still no luck. I think the teeth are just too thin. If anyone has a helpful suggestion, I’d love to hear it. Otherwise, does anyone know if the bars are available as the heads are fine (I have 4 of them). I was wondering if they are interchangeable with other bars and, if so, where I might find them.
Thanks for your help.
