Clamps are considered as one of the most useful unpowered tool. One can never have enough of these, it provides one with 'extra hands' when dealing with wood pieces because it helps to hold them together, just like how a friend would be able to do it; but if you are alone and you need someone to hold the wooden pieces together but there's no one available to help you then you can always rely on your trusty clamps.
While it is true that gluing the pieces together does the same job of holding the pieces or fastening them together with a clamp, but what happens after you are done working with the piece and you need to detach the pieces? It would not be pleasant or easy to remove the glue and even if you manage to remove them, they might leave behind some sticky and stubborn residue which mars the beauty of the wood. Hence woodworkers appreciate clamps a lot and they understand their importance.
Clamp price - Fact is that the brand, quality, size and materials used to make the bench clamp can determine the price you get to pay in the end. You of course should get the clamp you can afford, but also ensure that you don't end up compromising on its quality in the name of saving money on the tool.
