Attach a clamp to a workbench or workpiece to ground your machine prior to welding. This helps to prevent electrical shock and protects welding equipment from damage. It also helps ensure that enough heat can be produced to create a quality weld.
Standard Spring Clamps
Similar to clothespins, spring clamps provide fast clamping on a range of materials. A hidden spring maintains strong tension between the two handles to keep the connection secure.
A visible spring between the handles maintains strong tension and a secure connection. Similar to clothespins, spring clamps provide fast clamping on a range of materials.
Also known as G-clamps, C-clamps have a fixed-width curved frame with a screw that can be turned to change the jaw size to suit the workpiece. The copper-plated screw resists welding spatter for quick cleanup.
Lightweight cantilever clamps provide a stronger hold than standard C-clamps. Their floating jaws can clamp uneven, tubular, or irregularly shaped surfaces without distorting or twisting the material.
Magnetic Link Clamps for Steel Plates
Use magnetic links to secure steel plates to your work surface for welding, brazing, and soldering.
