Parts of a variable angle weld clamp magnet: Pivot bolt, magnet, locking wing nut, and angle measurements

Pivot bolt on a variable angle weld clamp magnet

Pivot bolt on a lightweight and heavy duty variable angle weld clamp magnet The pivot bolt is the bolt which the two magnets revolve around. It is also the bolt that holds the two magnets together.
Adjustable handle and locking wingnut on a pivot bolt, shown on a single joint variable angle weld clamp magnets Some of the pivot bolts have an adjustable handle or locking wing nut on them to set the angle of the magnets.

Magnets on a variable angle weld clamp magnet

Two magnets labelled on a red variable angle weld clamp magnet There are always two block magnets on each variable angle weld clamp magnet.

Angle measurements on a variable angle weld clamp magnet

Angle measurements on a single joint and a heavy duty variable angle weld clamp magnet There are a set of angle measurements on all varieties of variable angle weld clamp magnet which allow the user to easily move the magnets to the correct angle without the use of an external measuring device.

Additional features of a variable angle weld clamp magnet

Locking wing nut on a red variable angle weld clamp magnet

Locking wing nut

The locking wing nut is available on a few types of variable angle weld clamp magnet and can be loosened/tightened to move the magnets to the required angle.

bubble vial level on a blue variable angle weld clamp magnet

Bubble vial level

The bubble vial level is only available on a few types of variable angle weld clamp magnets. They are used to ensure that the piece of steel held by the magnet is kept level.

On and off switches

The on/off switch allows the user to control the direction of the magnet’s magnetic path.

When the weld clamp magnet is turned off, the magnets rotate away from their casing which stops their magnetic path, this makes the magnet unable to hold material.

When the magnet is turned back on the magnets turn back into position which allows the surfaces to be magnetised again.
