Cheap DIY welding clamps
« on: April 24, 2017, 06:44:28 AM »
I couldn't see spending $35 ea. for special welding table clamps. Picked up some general purpose bar clamps at HF for like $4 ea! (very good quality by the way) I ground the rivet off that holds the bottom piece on, welded on a 2" pc of 5/8" dom, which fits perfectly in the holes on my welding table. When you tighten down the clamps the pressure causes it to tilt and bind in the hole, causing it to hold fast! For about $4.50 ea, they work great!!

nada! Shopping for parts for new build.
