Hi tompooley79

A difficult question to answer. As you say there are loads, the link you posted, Bessey are very good, but expensive. If you intend doing lots of woodworking they could be a good buy. I suggest you take a look at the Irwin Quick Grip.

There was always a saying that you can't have two many clamps, but start off by having two the same, should be enough for small jobs, and best of luck with your shelves.
