Festool, a manufacturer of precision-engineered power tools, released its new Quick Clamp — a durable multi-function table (MFT) lever clamp that holds workpieces in place, offering an easy fasten-and-release functionality.
The company also launched a limited-edition Plier Systainer Set for remodelers, carpenters, and electricians looking to bolster their shop selection
“The MFT Lever Clamp was initially introduced as part of a limited edition set earlier this year and, thanks to customer demand, we’re proud to now offer the Lever Clamp as a standalone permanent item in our portfolio,” said Rick Bush, product marketing manager at Festool. “In addition, the Pliers Systainer Set includes seven limited-edition tools that feature excellent fit and finish.”
The Lever Clamp MFT-HZ 80. Festool’s Quick Clamp lever makes clamping a smooth process. For the first time, it’s available as a permanent, standalone product. The robust, long-lasting tool can be transported from project to project for years to come.
The clamp works on a variety of materials up to a height of 3-1/8″ (80mm) and the lever makes it quick and convenient to clamp and release workpieces one-handed without slipping. It is compatible with the MFT hole pattern, making it easy to attach to a MFT or a mobile workshop.
