Painless Clamps. Does the mere thought of your next stair job — all that tightening and loosening by hand of dozens of large clamps — have your carpal tunnel syndrome acting up? Bessey's TSC4.516 staircase clamps are designed to be driven with an impact wrench fitted with a 15/16-inch socket. They have a throat depth of 4 1/2 inches and an overall capacity of 16 inches and can apply nearly a ton of force. You can also use them with a ratchet and socket to align stubborn framing members with great accuracy before nailing. They cost $59 each. Bessey, 800/828-1004.
