F-Clamps
Hobart F-clamps (sliding-arm clamps) are nearly 10 times faster to use than C-clamps and offer stronger, more efficient holding power. Built with the strength of drop forged, heat-treated, nickel/chrome plated bar stock, the F-clamps feature a screw with copper-coating to protect against weld spatter. Hobart F-clamps are available in three grades of clamping pressure and various sizes:

Light Duty (500 lbs.)

  • 8in.     $15    

Heavy Duty (1,000 lbs.)

  • 8 in.     $25
  • 12 in.     $28
  • 16 in.     $30     

Super Duty (1,250 lbs.)

  • 8in.    $35
  • 12in.    $38
  • 16in.    $40

2-Axis Clamp
Hobart's 2-Axis Clamp is an economical solution for a perfect 90-degree fit-up. Ideal for welding square tube, round tube, angle and channel iron, the 2-Axis Clamp features a floating head and rotating spindle screw that adjusts to align and hold work pieces in place. MSRP $30

Locking Pliers / Welding Clamps
Hobart's four new Locking Pliers and Welding Clamps make setup easy. They feature a heavy-duty gnarled head and nickel-chrome plated handles, which are rubberized in black and orange to increase comfort. These tools are rugged, yet simple to adjust and are available in four sizes:

  • 4 in.        $8
  • 6 in.        $10
  • 11 in.    $12
  • Long-Neck    $20

360-Degree Swivel Magnet
Hobart's swivel magnet adjusts to almost any angle to hold metal objects in place while welding. Both 3 in. magnets swivel 360 degrees for accurate placement and pull with 50 lbs. of strength. MSRP $12

Magnetic Ground Clamp
Rated at 500-amps, Hobart's Magnetic Ground Clamp can stick to any weld-able ferrous metal and features an orange rubberized release lever. MSRP $9

Quick Release On/Off Magnets
A simple twist of the knob release on Hobart's Quick Release magnet easily engages or disengages a firm hold on thick steel, making accurate fit-up a snap.
MSRP $30
