Greetings to everyone who loves tinkering and those who just looked at the site in search of interesting ideas that can be adopted. Once I have already described a method of making a clamp, or maybe it is better to call a clamp, for welding shaped pipes at different angles, but in the same plane. Today I present to your attention a structure on which shaped pipes can be welded in two planes. That is, it is like a platform for 3D welding, if you can call it that. First, parts are welded on it at a right angle horizontally, then another part is placed on the corner and welded at a right angle vertically. This idea was born to the author of the homemade product after he got his hands on an old car jack and two rear brake pads. At some points, this adaptation is not needed at all, but for example, in the manufacture of some individual elements of the frame (or some kind of frame), it can come in handy, especially since it is easy to manufacture, well, like five cents))). In general, decide for yourself, but I will write this little idea in detail. If anyone is interested, we sit down more conveniently, read, watch (video, as usual below), take notes.
* old car jack,
* rear brake pads (more precisely, only one),
* sheet metal 5-6 mm thick,
* profile metal pipe with a section of 15×15 mm,
* bolts, nuts, washers, studs,
* shaped tube 50×50 mm,
* square 10×10 mm.
* paint for metal.
* welding machine,
* drill or screwdriver,
* clamps or grip,
* marking tool (square, marker). < br>
And so, the car takes a jack and pads. For homemade products, as I said, you will need one. Then the author disassembles the jack. For homemade products, you only need a screw and bushings through which it passes, one with a thread, the other without. To disassemble the jack, the author uses a grinder, it cuts off the caps of his fingers.

Next, the author takes a section of a profile pipe 50×50 mm under it a bearing and a ring of the same diameter as the bearing. He presses all this into the pipe with the help of a vice, first the sleeve, then the bearing. Welds the sleeve on the reverse side.
Marks the prepared part with a marker. In two opposite walls, holding the workpiece in a vice, he cuts in the middle, and in the other two, in the middle of the marked area, he drills holes. He cuts threads in them.

Next, the part is attached to the block, which has already been processed and cleaned from welding. It looks like this (see photo). Then a fixing bolt is screwed into the hole. On the reverse side, it is screwed into such a nut (plate) from a square with an additional hole through which the plate is attached to the pipe wall.

At this stage, the author started preparing the foundation. He cut it out of sheet metal. First, I marked a square with a side of 38 cm. I cut it out. I cut off three corners with a grinder, as shown in the photo.

Then he turned everything over (along with the part) and cleaned the plate with a grinder.

In addition, the author has made two such details, a bushing and a nut, both with a stud in the walls.
Next, the author threads on the screw from the jack first “native” nuts, a prepared nut, a profile part and a bushing. The sleeve is clamped flush at the end of the screw, the profile part is pulled to it and tightened with a nut, which is tightened by the screw. The author welds native nuts to the base as shown in the photo.

Next, the author turns his creation over and welds a washer to the plate. Then he cuts the profile pipe 15×15 mm into blanks along the length of the walls, immediately cutting the ends to the desired angle. It welds them around the perimeter, welds one pipe across. These are kind of legs.

From the same sheet metal as the base, the author cut out two parts of this shape (see photo).
Then he installed them vertically to the base at right angles (this is mandatory), and welded them. He carefully cleaned all the seams with a grinder.
< h2> Step 9.
At the final stage, the author painted his platform and tested it in action.
