Thread: Clampable weld square

  1. #1

    Clampable weld square

    This is an project that when made well will speed up squaring. I drew it out of 1/4x1 crs bar stock you can use just about any bar stock. Square or round material can be clamped inside or out. I suggest you v out the areas to be welded so you can grind smooth at completion. Don't put welds on the inside of the 10" long pieces so you can clamp any shape without interference.

    I got to make me a couple of these. When I was building my tig cart bottle rack I taped framing squares to the pipe to hold it square. Not the ideal way. these would have made that job a breeze. Thanks for sharing.

    Slick. Dead easy to check the tool for square with a decent measure. Well played, sir. ^_^
    Full hand tool assortment, collecting sheet metal hammers/dollies, more time than money.
