Making a Rotary Ground Clamp for Welding | Shop Made Tools

In this video we are making one of our Rotary Ground Clamps and we are GIVING IT AWAY! This shop made rotary earth clamp makes welding rotating parts like cylinder rods and barrels so much easier and we wanted to show how simple it is to make one. To make this rotary earth clamp we are using scrap brass which first needs melting in our devil forge and casting into blanks. After we melt and cast the metal we show the step by step process for making the parts starting with machining the brass blanks and then machining a brass bolt. We also drill and tap a hole in one of the brass blanks on our milling machine before assembling the rotary ground clamp ready to use! Make sure to enter the giveaway for a chance to WIN this Rotary Ground Clamp!
