A single joint variable angle weld clamp magnet is where two magnets are held together on a single point which they can revolve around.

It can create any angle between 30° and 275° degrees. It also has the measurements for 45°, 60°, 90°, 120° and 180° to aid the set up of the angles.

Lightweight variable angle weld clamp magnets

The lightweight variable angle weld clamp magnet is the smallest variety and can achieve the angles 25° to 280°.

To aid set up the angles 30°, 45°, 60° and 90° are marked onto the weld clamp magnet.

The lightweight variable angle weld clamp magnet requires the use of a spanner to set the angles. There is usually one provided upon purchase.

It is needed to unscrew the nut on the pivot bolt to allow the magnets to move freely, before then tightening it again at the required angle.

Heavy-duty variable angle weld clamp magnets

Heavy-duty variable angle weld clamp magnets are more limited in their range than the other two types.

This is because they are held at two different points, rather than just the pivot bolt. This reduces the range of angles they can achieve to only those angles between 45° and 90°.

The best variety of variable angle weld clamp magnets for all round use would be the single joint.

This is because it can achieve a large number of different angles but still have a considerable magnetic pull.
