These are the best pads for HF F-clamps that I have seen yet. I printed one as a test and they snap on so tight they won't ever fall off. I been printing these all day long..THANK YOU

Awesome! Thank you. I'm glad they are working out for you.

the pads that come with the tool are soft and there's a couple of important reasons fort that
1) so you dont mar the workpiece (meaning mess up the clamped area)
2) they help hold the tool in place.

basicly do not print these in a HARD material (PLA, ABS, PETG) print them in a soft material. like some nylons.

and if your always loosing them when you get a new clamp glue the included pads on. e6000 will work well for that.

Correct. These are a little softer and a little thicker. They add a bit more squeeze when clamping without worrying about marring the wood. The pads that came on mine were not soft, at least not as soft as the TPU pads I've printed. Like you said, I wouldn't recommend printing these with a hard material. TPU works well.
