Most Helpful Customer Reviews
These are shaped well and useable. BUT they must be pulled out straight and carefully or the pointed end will break. I broke 2 in the first week. These are not the name brand and are not are tough as others I have used that will bend if abused.
The items I recieved are not the items pictured in the product description. Big Horn Pinch dogs are angled incorrectly, the outsides are not 90 degrees from the spine, they are raked OUT at least 10 degrees. this will MANGLE anything you try to draw together, I don't even think they would draw a joint shut, rather just mangling, bending, (they are junk cookie-cutter stamped! NOT forged)and eventually breaking from metal fatigue.ZERO STARS!
I thought these would be good for holding boards while being glued up for a panel. They are blunt and the two "spikes" form an angle greater than 90 degrees on their outside edges with the back (portion you would hammer). They are made from that brittle cast metal - not sure what it is called but not malleable metal. Before use you would need to modify these by grinding or filing the "spikes" to change their angle and to sharpen them to penetrate anything harder than the end grain of pine.
