No more welding in inclement weather; near flammable materials, or finished surfaces. The Angle-Rite clamp will help you retain control of the project. You can set up an entire railing; disconnect the interlocking primary and secondary clamps still attached to the tubes, and reassemble it all at a different location without losing any of your angles or alignments. This allows moving the welding process indoors or to a safer location, away from flammable surroundings, dangers to the welder, or the surrounding personnel.
The Angle-Rite clamp increases efficiency and reduces labor hours. It also increases safety by allowing the welder to have both hands available to complete the job. This is especially useful while working on stairways, boat decks, and other elevated surfaces.
The unique interlocking design of the Angle-Rite clamp holds tube connections in place, allowing for a complete setup before committing to a design and welding. No second person is required and no other jigs are needed. For example, an entire railing system can be set up using the Angle-Rite clamp before any welding is applied.
The Angle-Rite Clamp allows you to set angles visually, or if the intersecting angle between two tubes is known, simply dial-in the desired angle and lock it in place. Once your angle is set, the secondary clamp and tube are transferable between connections, cutting attachments, and other positions. Alternately, if you've changed your mind on the angle, you can dial-in a different angle, without losing your rotational alignment. This will save you time and money.
The Angle-Rite® Clamp controls weld distortion by compensating during the welding process. The intersected tube retains its straightness or original curvature after welding; no more waves or unintended bending. This will improve the quality of your completed project.
The picture above shows the difference between tubes welded with and without the Angle-Rite clamp. The tube to the right of the straight edge was welded without the Angle-Rite clamp. The tube to the left was welded with the Angle-Rite clamp. Notice how straight it is. That is the weld compensation at work.
This video demonstrates how to join tube or pipe at specific angles using the Angle-Rite Clamp, as well as controlling distortion with the patented design and mitering or notching precise lengths and angles.
