Homemade Side Clamp for Welding table

I’ve been thinking about side clamps for my welding table for a while. Today I got some cold rolled 5/8 round stock and some IRWIN C-clamps and went to work! It was also my fist time TIG welding steel to cast iron! I stopped at Toll Welding Supplies and got some nickel filler rod and gave it a shot! I’m happy how the first one turned out, and I will make three more tomorrow! I wanted something height adjustable, instead of the fixed height side clamp available from Strong Hand Tools. It will be interesting to see how they perform in the long run. Nothing to put a lot of pressure on something, but enough to hold it in place!
