Reversible Welding Table Plates Designed for Longevity
IMTS 2018: Strong Hand Tools has developed reversible BuildPro welding table plates meant to last twice the lifetime of the table.
Strong Hand Tools has developed reversible BuildPro welding table plates meant to last twice the lifetime of the table.The welding tables feature a reversible table plate with a 5/8", CNC-machined hole design for unlimited flexibility in modular fixturing in the setup of dedicated, short run or prototype welding fixtures. The company’s line of clamps, fixturing components, and fixturing kits are available for accurate locating, positioning and clamping of stock for welding and fabrication. Each table is made of precision ground steel plates that can be reconfigured to extend the width of the table for larger projects.
When the plate surfaces show signs of wear, they can be turned over to provide a new work surface. The plates are also self-locating for correct alignment. The welding tables include the company’s locating bushing so the table plates can be reversed, removed, repositioned and re-aligned correctly on the tabletop.
These vise jaws use protruding, mechanical pins to repeatedly support workpieces either horizontally or at angles. They are said to allow quicker setups than conventional parallels.
Don't assume the standard chuck is the right workholding for every lathe application.
When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine, many turn to the steady rest.
