These look awesome.
2PCS ADJUSTABLE WELDING MAGNETIC HOLDER
they do look cool
but I've been using magnets with T- bar for years . just add scrap to it with c vise clamps . it's free
I’ve never had much luck with magnets after the first use. They clog up with shavings and become a headache after that. YMMV
Twin2 must be well-off to afford those high-falutin t-bar magnets.
ha low tech home made
Magnets are useful, but they keep/attract metal dust, need cleaning... work only on metal.
is it real?
I thought you meant these.
Magswitch MagSquares 600
I have some of those, just not that expensive...
I also use these in various forms for tack things together...
"We highly recommend you get at least 10.... You can keep the extras in case you lose or break some"
This marketing strategy is not exactly confidence inspiring to get me to buy their product. It seems they just want to sell as many as they can.
I might go with the cheaper version...
Amazon.com: HankuV Type Magnetic Welding Clamps Holder Suspender Fixture Adjustable V Pads Strong: Clothing
What about this offering seems ...odd?
Ah. Buy 1 for 2.99 + 1.99 shipping for $4.98.
Buy 2 for $9.49 + 1.99 shipping at $11.48 or $5.74 each. Uh huh.
I find that the magnetic clamps affect my welding when doing TIG work so I avoid them for that. I did use them for MIG and such but they do have a habit of coming loose at a bad moment or loosing alignment just enough to cause a headache later so mostly they just sit collecting filings.
To clean the magnetic holders, I use a wire brush. Work well enough...
I have a few of those vpads and a mag tab from strong hand tools and they work great. I use a small wire brush to clean off metal chips and grinding dust off the magnets.
im such a crappy welder I usually pop rivet the pieces together and then weld...
then I think about why I ever welded it
