Welders Magnetic Squares

By Serpent & Dove - Applied Magnetics Pty Ltd

Like having a third hand, Welders Magnetic Squares are the tidiest and fastest way to set up and clamp steel workpieces for welding.

Various sizes, strengths & configurations enable you to clamp almost any size of steel workpiece at 45 and 90 degrees or other angles for welding or brazing. Unlike mechanical clamps, these have no protruding screws or levers.

Feature/Benefits:

  • Strongest magnetic clamps available.

    Compare Serpent and Dove range with competitors and you'll find ours are the strongest magnetic clamps. We know how to maximise clamping power on the job.

To accommodate round material (see chart below) a good, deep recess is needed.

  • Maximum recess depth between side (pole) plates
  • Robust and accurate construction No wobble! Some low cost clamps are inaccurate and unreliable with mis-aligned plates. You can rely on our Magnetic Squares' robust and accurate construction to ensure the job is true and accurate. Place a Serpent and Dove Square on a true surface and it won’t wobble.

It is important that Welders Magnetic Squares accommodate round material as well as flat. All Serpent and Dove Welders Magnetic Squares have the magnet element recessed well below the holding edges of the Square. This feature makes our Squares most suitable for holding round material (pipe or bar). To clamp round sections securely, both pole plates must be in contact with the work piece. The deeper the recess, the better small diameters are clamped. Low cost alternatives miss this advantage.

Product Name: Welders Magnetic Square, Standard

(Other names people use: Magnetic Corner, Welders Magnet, Magnetic Angle Clamp)

Product Codes: STWMS and STMA (Double or Multi-Angle unit)

Applications

Use this Magnetic Square for routine work pieces and for pipes or tubes down to 15 mm (0.6") diameter.

110 x 95 mm (4.3" x 3.75") this most popular unit especially suits positioning heavy flanges, plates and R.H.S. Improved again in 2006, this clamp will grip 3 mm steel with greater than a whopping 36 Kgs (80 pounds)!

Feature/Benefits

  • Strongest magnetic clamps available.
  • Robust and accurate construction to prevent wobble.
  • Major clamping edges are 110 mm (4.3"), 95mm (3.75") and 100 mm (2.5") and it’s 20 mm (0.8") wide.
  • It has deep recesses between the pole plates to accommodate round material down to 15 mm (0.6") diameter.
  • 2 mm (0.08") thick pole plates with good flat, sharp edges – an important magnetic feature – to give a clamping force in excess of 36 Kgs (80 Lbs) on machined, 3 mm (0.125") steel plate.

Other Options

The Standard Welders Magnetic Square can be supplied as a matched pair, in "Multi-Angle" configuration, so you can clamp items at any angle you want. It will clamp on either the inside or outside of an angle.

Product Name: Compact Welders Magnetic Square

Product Codes: STCSWMS & STCDWMS (Single or Double)

Applications

Welders use this one for smaller jobs like brackets or small diameter pipe and bar. Suits both the trades or handyperson. Improved in 2006 to clamp 20 Kgs (44 Pounds) on 3 mm (1/8") steel. Comes in single or double configuration. Pictured is Compact Double which can clamp workpieces at any desired angle. A very popular unit.

Feature/Benefits

  • Strongest magnetic clamps available.
  • Robust and accurate construction to prevent wobble
  • Maximum recess between side (pole) plates.
  • The Compact has major clamping edges of 85 mm (3.3"), 85 mm (3.3") and 70 mm (2.75") and is 15 mm (0.6") wide. Deep recesses accommodate round material right down to 13 mm (0.5") diameter.
  • Compact comes in single or double configuration (adjustable to any desired angle) and clamps with a force of 20 kg (5.5 Lbs) on machined, 3 mm (0.25") steel plate.

Product Group: Welders Magnetic Square

Product Name: Chunky Welders Magnetic Square

Product Code: STCMS

Applications

Designed specifically to clamp round pipe and tube, like handrails etc, the Chunky is a must for the welder's toolbox. With twice the width of the Standard Magnetic Square, it also gets a good hold on wide, flat plates. It has a lever release handle to break the magnetic hold from the job and uses specially shaped ferrite magnet element for maximum magnetic strength.

Feature/Benefits

  • Strongest magnetic clamps available.
  • Robust and accurate construction to prevent wobble
  • Maximum deep recess between side (pole) plates to grip pipe and round.
  • It has the same edge lengths as the Standard, is 38 mm (1.5") wide and will clamp with up to 30 kg (66 lbs) of force on 6 mm (0.25") machined steel. Deep recesses maximises range of pipe diameters that can be effectively clamped.

Product Group: Welders Magnetic Squares - also known as welders magnets

Product Name: Easy-Off Welders Magnetic Square

Product Codes: STEOWMS

Applications

A smart choice for the not-so-heavy jobs and where setup is tricky, or where careful and accurate positioning is needed on more than one joint before lock-down. Easy-Off's two strengths - 'Low' and 'High' make lock-down or release easy and also helps keep the Square clean when not in use.
