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.
Pro Accessory Pack: You’re tackling complex, everchanging projects and you need an accessory pack that won’t leave you hanging. This package has all the critical accessories, a collection of time-saving tools like our 2-axis clamps, and a few fixtures to integrate your existing tools into the mix (and we’ve included a good discount when purchased in this 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 ten (10) 6.5″ Inserta Clamps and ten (10) 8.5″ Inserta Clamps in our Pro kit because your projects call for an arsenal of clamps!
We have you covered with six (6) 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!
V-Blocks & V-Pads
It’s impossible to weld pipe as it’s rolling off the table, so we’ve included a mighty collection of v-blocks and v-pads to hold your material exactly where you need it. The V-Block drops into any 5/8″ hole and holds the tubing in its “V” while downward pressure is applied through a magnetized V-Pad mounted on Inserta Clamps.
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.
Our bolt-on vise mount adds a 10″ x 10″ extension that’ll let you securely mount almost any vise, and really be able to put some leverage on it!
Welding Table Accessory Plates – 8″ × 2
Accessory plates allow for the creation of custom fixtures for our welding tables. This package prices two (2) plates to get you started.
Welding Table Fab Squares
The 14″ 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!
1/2″ Threaded Adapters
Convert any hole in the table into a 1/2″x 13 threaded hole. Place the Adapter in position beneath the tabletop, in alignment with table holes. Magnets hold threaded adapter in place so you can thread bolts right through from the top of the table!
2-Axis Fixture Vise 2.45″ T-Clearance
Perfect for creating clean 2-axis joints with this machined 3.75-Inch Miter Joint/2.45-Inch T-Clearance. Buy a set of four and quickly build your own tabletop.
