Goodmorning everyone!!


So, this is my latest mini-project:





Recently, I wished I had a way to tack things to the "inside" of my table... Too far from the edges to conventionally clamp them... And this is what I came up with...


I bought a BESSEY 8" C clamp from the local lowes, spark tested it to determine it was malleable iron, and then cut if off and simply 7018'd it to a couple scraps of mild steel plate, which I can tack anywhere I need to...


Anyway, the clamp welded very well... It was my first time welding malleable cast iron, and first time welding dissimilar metals...


And I got another tool for the shop... I'm pretty happy with how it came out


Just thought I'd share... I'm probably not the first one to come up with this idea... Hope you guys enjoy the video, and have an awesome weekend everyone
