  • magnetic welding table

    is it possible to make a welding table magnetic or electromagnetic? I am welding many small pieces of steel together and I thought it might save time and steady the stock material if the table was magnetized from underneath. (lincoln wire feed mig)

    Sure there are many ways to make a welding table magnetic, but before you try such an endeavor you might want to weld around a magnet. If you have never done this before, it is a most enjoyable treat...

        the most fun can be had with some seriously magnetized 6 inch drill pipe when you're on a ladder and it's an overhead stick weld on a windy day.LOL

          hmm

          if its repetitive i would make some jigs or something. small pieces and magnets can be quite frustrating to say the least you could also make some mini magnets with some small magnets and epoxy or you could try one of the snake type magnets with the roach clip on the end

              to sum it up: not advisable.
