Prop A Weld makes it easy for someone working on their own to weld beams and rails. The steel chain and magnetic brackets grip and clamp to virtually any upright with a vice like grip. Once in place, the cross beam slide bracket is easily adjusted up or down with millimetre precision to achieve highly accurate placement of the rail on the post.
- Fits any pipe or square section up to 120mm (7"Inches)
- 3 axis adjustment after the clamp is locked on.
- Holds up to 100kg (220 Pounds)
- Works inverted to allow clamping 20mm from the ground.
- Easy to use trigger action.
- Stainless steel construction
Prop A Weld sits out from the post or upright and provides plenty of space around the weld seam to get to it with either a stick rod or MIG / TIG torch.
Holding a beam in place by hand has its problems as it’s difficult to keep the rail steady and in position while you try to get a tack on the join. It’s almost impossible to do when the beam is heavy and needs to be level, at a precise angle or close to the ground.
Welding rails or beams to a post is a job often needed on farm for building cattle yards, putting rails on a balustrade, building walkway’s or making end assemblies. it’s a job often done by fencing contractors and usually requires two people, one person to holds one end the beam while the other person holds and welds.
Most guys will use G clamps or straps to hold a hold a block to the upright and carefully tap the block and clamp up or down to get level. But that can be difficult to do and can knock the horizontal beam off the block on the other upright. It’s even more difficult when trying to weld cattle rail that dosen’t have a flat bottom edge.
The Prop A Weld is a tool that can save you thousands on labour as it allows a single person to work alone. There will always be that day when you can't get someone to hold up the other end of a rail or pipe.
quick and easy saves time playing around with pliers
I really like the concept of a single tool instead of using two pliers to unwind the barbs. The tool also covers the barbs entirely while unwinding so you don't get stabbed. My only problem is that it gets jammed up occasionally, especially if the barbs are not consistent.
Great quality, good service, fast shipping
Easy to use and quiet simple operation.
I debarb when tieing off and specially at gateways etc otherwise you end up getting scratched as if you come across a wildcat.
How does that price compare to a turn buckle . It's seems high
Worth the money
Simple but effective wire strainer. Better value than most alternatives.
Good service and well made product, easy to use.
work out how they function before using and you will find them good value.
peruse the clear instructions on the lid
Easy to use and strong
I've been fixing fences for the last 45+ years and the DeBarber Mark 2 is simple, reliable, and worth every penny of having it shipped to Nashville, Tennessee. The weekend after I received it, I repaired a half mile of fence without a single cut, nick, or scratch. I'll have to keep an eye out for more ingenious tools from Australia.
