    When a welder tells you to "stick it", what do they really mean?

    I like this and see many possible uses for myself in my home shop, where did you get materials or did you machine them yourself.
    thanks

    This is a great idea! I might have to try it as I already have the balls for it! LOL!

    I am not sure they would rigid enough to resist warping but would sure be handy when you need an extra third or fourth hand to tack something up.

    Beautiful work, patent them and call them dog bone clamps

    Time to resurrect this thread. Anyone know a good length to make the arms with the balls attached at each end?

    Manfrotto makes a magic arm and other arms to use with super clamps that make an adjustable camera mount. Ebay sometimes have them for a good price. I have two one for camera work and one for welding shop.

    Very slick build! I could see that coming in very handy.... and just happen to have some 3/4" and 1" mild steel balls I bought for making candle holders......

    Somewhere along the line I saw where somebody used a bowling ball with a peg coming out the side, and the bowling ball was trapped between two big steel rings one stationary and the other spring-loaded to a lever foot pedal and you sat at this contraption and when you wanted to reposition your oddball welding job, you just stepped down on the lever that released the clamp on the bowling ball, repositioned the workpiece, and released the pedal to hold it in place. Kinda like this, but with a spring instead of a jack:



    I actually bought a bowling ball to make such a gadget, then decided it was easier in most cases to weld out of position! Seemed like a good idea at the time. Someday maybe I'll bodge it together.

    Here she is! Love Bill's channel in general, but his take on the ball-swivel table was pure genius! I could see it being very handy with the OP's locking arm system in place...
