Welding tip: Grounding clamps

There will be times when you can’t reasonably attach your grounding clamp or even don’t want to attach it if your clamp has strong springs.

To solve this, grab some scrap and clean up the surface of the connecting points and place your grounding clamp wherever you need to.


In the pictured scenario, it’s actually helping apply weight to the small pipe so it won’t move before I weld it and help me keep a good right angle.

Thanks for reading.
