Far better than the standard composite clamp
This is far better than the aluminum-ABS composite clamp that comes with Gatco sets. I have been using my broken composite clamp held together with JB Weld for long enough, time for a replacement. One thing that really surprised me- when held back-to-back with the composite clamp, the angle guides don't line up- so I looked closer, and saw that the composite clamp is 1/2 slot off symmetry! WTF? The new aluminum clamp, by design, is absolutely symmetric. It holds well and I'm not afraid to clamp down with the screws. Mounted in a bench vise, it's a poor-man's Wicked.

Not as expected
This is a replacement for the original non- metal clamp that came with the set. I find this inferior as the knotch which grips the blade is cast and is not machined at right angles. The rounded corners and fillets pushes the blade out of the clamp. I took a file to mine to flatten the fillets but still having problems.This is not a quality design. Quite disapointed.

Best I've used....
I own a DMT aligner system. The guide from DMT is marginal at best. After using the DMT aligner for four years, I replaced the DMT aligner with this one. I couldn't be more pleased! This is a solid piece of equipment and works wonderfully! I wish I had upgraded to this one a long time ago. WELL DONE GATCO!!
