What Tools Are Included
The first question people usually ask when purchasing a new weld table for fixturing is, ‘what tools do I need’? So we’ve assembled three optional packages to ensure you have a range of useful tools that will help with just about any project you need to tackle. Check out our Starter, Advanced, and Pro Accessory Packs.
Advanced Accessory Pack: You subscribe to the belief, “Good enough never is” and your projects reflect that – so our Starter pack is out and you’re ready for something more… This package brings even more tooling options for fixturing those intricate projects (and we’ve discounted the overall kit).
What You Get – And Why!
6.5″ & 8.5″ InsertaClamps
We consider the InsertaClamps to be the single most important accessory for our fabrication tables. These clamps can drop in any hole on our table or any of the other fixtures, and quickly clamp down with hundreds of pounds of holding force.
We include eight (8) 6.5″ Inserta Clamps and four (4) 8.5″ Inserta Clamps in our Advanced kit because advanced projects call for plenty of clamps!
We have you covered with four (4) additional 4″ Opening Pliers. Perfect for holding sheet metal and small objects.
Stops & Side Clamps
It’s one thing to be able to clamp things downward to the table, but it’s another thing to be able to position things accurately and clamp them sideways. This is where the stops and side clamps come in. We’ve included several to keep your materials exactly where you want them: Stops, Side Clamps, Variable Height Edge Stops and Sliding Stops. Each has its own function.
Stops are the fastest way to create borders, so drop them on one side of your material and push against them from the opposite side!
Meanwhile, on the other side you need to be able to push things together firmly to keep it in place, so that’s where the Side Clamps come in.
So let’s say you want to build a frame that’s almost as big as your table surface. You can use the Variable Height Stops to push your material right up to the edge.
Sometimes your materials don’t fit conveniently between our precision holes and other stops just don’t work. Enter our Sliding Stops. Position them where you need ’em and they will hold!
Magnetic Rest Buttons
The magnetic rest buttons do two very critical things:
- They raise your work piece up by about a half inch (or more if you stack them), allowing you to actually fully weld seams all the way down without risking welding your project to the table!
- They allow for some critical space for weld BB’s to cool down before hitting the table surface, which prevents a lot of them from sticking.
For even more protection for your table top we recommend spraying Anti-Spatter directly on the table surface before welding over it! Between that and the rest buttons virtually nothing will stick to your beautiful table!
10″ Combo Accessory Tool Holder
Because you don’t have time to look for lost tools, we’ve created the Combo Accessory Tool Holder. Our 10″ x 7″ tool holder offers plenty of space for hanging clamps/pliers and comes with a top-shelf with five 5/8″ precision-cut holes for extra tooling.
Welding Table Fab Squares
The 12″ Fab Squares do exactly what you would expect them too. Allow you to fixture upwards at a perfect 90-degree angle, meaning you can reliably and consistently fixture in three dimensions!
