Sometimes unlikely matches are the start of something great. This is what happened when former opera singer Adele Holman teamed up with cabinetmaker Hans Jørgensen and tool salesman Marcus Russ in 1903.
A trailblazer for her time, Adele Holman went into manufacturing, which was unheard of. She even signed her documents ‘A. V. Holman’ to hide her identity!
And indeed it was a start of something great – and even quite lasting. The match between Holman, Jørgensen and Russ saw the beginning of the Pony Jorgensen clamps, which to this day equals quality, tradition and strength.
Coming from a proud tradition of other great Danish cabinet- & furniture making, Jørgensen patented a handscrew featuring steel adjusting screws at first.
Today, the clamps feature significant clamping forces ranging between 272 – 453.5 kg.
As Toolware tells us: “Unique Jorgensen E-Z HOLD bar clamps allow for rapid and easy clamping and can easily be converted to spreader clamps. The contoured comfort grip and quick release lever make it simple to get a firm grasp, and our exclusive patented feature lets you join two clamps together to create a clamp with more than double the opening capacity of a single clamp. Deep reach 92 mm pads help protect your work.”
