  • Weld-in Bung and adapters ... help find

    Often times i need to have a flush mounted threaded bung set into my steel tubing. I usually mig weld a plain steel nut to the back side of a steel washer. As you know, the mig weld takes up room and i have to cut the receiving hole rather large to accommodate the mig weld bead.

    Does anyone know where i can find a weld-in bung that has a small shoulder ?

    In this photo, the weld-in bung is used to receive the leveling foot pad.

    thanks for any help.

    Nice table.

    I used flange nuts for my work table leveling feet.

    Cut the hole for the flange with a hole saw and welded it flush with the tubing.

    Saves welding a washer to the nut.

    Stainless flange nuts are also available for outdoor applications.

        Now you NEED to buy a lathe! You may have wanted one before ,but
        now you really need one.

          Hit up a racing equipment supply shop...some to think about are Longacre and Pegasus auto racing supply.

          They might have what you are looking for. Could also check out Protofab, I think they make weld in bungs.

          EDIT: Did a little searching since I have nothing better to do right now.

          I have a feeling what you need is a touch heavier duty that most auto this is the only one Im going to post. Pack of (6) 1/2" 20 thread weld bosses.
