Hello, dear readers and DIY!
When assembling various metal or wooden structures, it is often required to fix the parts in a vertical position.
In this article, the author of the YouTube channel “TheDacchio” will tell you how he made “vertical” boxes with a clip .
This device is not very difficult to make in a small workshop with a welding machine.
Materials necessary for home-made.
– Steel profile pipe 100 × 50
– Steel rod, nuts, bushings
– Aerosol primer, paint
– Anaerobic glue (thread lock)
– Welding wire .
Tools used by the author.
– Cutting disc, flap cleaning
– Screwdriver, drills for metal
– Drilling machine, machine vice
– Pendulum band saw
– Welding machine
– Tap holder with ratchet mechanism, tap, vice
– Angle clamp, F-shaped clamps
– Digital square, tape measure, marker.
So, the main material for the rack will serve profile pipe with a section of 100 × 50, 30 × 30 mm.
From it, the master cuts off two parts about 400 mm long. Although he uses a band saw for this, it is quite possible to get by with an ordinary grinder.
Putting both blanks on the welding table with narrow walls, an angle of 30 degrees between them is set. For this, the author uses digital square .
Both ends of each of the blanks are cut at an angle of 60 degrees.
A jumper is also cut out in the form of a trapezoid.
Having folded the structural elements together, the parts are seized by welding at several points.
The stand is fixed in a vice, and all seams are carefully welded.
Now you can remove slag and clean up the seams.
Next, from a profile pipe 30×30 mm, three blanks are cut. The ends to be joined are cut at an angle of 45 degrees.
Fixing the parts in turn in the corner clamp , the master welds them in the form of a U-shaped bracket.
In thick-walled steel a thread is cut into the sleeve, corresponding to the stud used as a pressure screw.
A sample for the nut is made at one of the ends of the bracket.
A stud is screwed into the nut, its end is aligned with the center of the opposite shoulder of the bracket. The nut is pressed against the end with a clamp and welded.
Having cut out a rectangle from the steel strip, the master welded it as a pressure pad.
Now the frame of the homemade “clamp” is welded to the side of the support.
screw a hole is drilled and a thread is cut into it.
The washer is screwed on in its place, while the screw sits on the anaerobic adhesive (thread lock) .
In order not to make a screw with a pressure penny, you can take a ready-made adjustable screw furniture support the desired diameter and length.
On the second side of the clamping screw, you need to install a knob.
First, a through hole is drilled in the sleeve.
The bushing is fixed on the screw with two nuts.
Now a hole of the required diameter is drilled in the screw.
On two ends the steel bar is threaded, the wrench is inserted into place, and nuts are screwed on its ends.
The excess thread of the clamping screw is cut off, the cut point is cleaned with a grinder.
It remains to clean and degrease the surfaces of the rack, and cover them with a protective layer of aerosol enamel.
The device is ready. This is how you can fix a fairly long profile pipe in a vertical position.
The plywood sheet is clamped in the same way. This is convenient not only when assembling structures, but also for painting work from both sides at once.
I thank the author for a simple but useful adaptation for the workshop!
Good mood, good health, and interesting ideas to everyone!
