Butt Welding Posted: Fri Jun 08, 2018 1:11 am     Views: 63      Rating: Not rated

I bought some of the HF butt weld clamps and they set a pretty wide gap. I took the center dividers out of the clamps and filed them down so they're the thickness of my wire and they worked great. .028" is pretty thin but these clamps are cheap so buy some extras in case you mess some up.

If you taper the end of the dividers so they're thinner than the surface that contacts the sheet metal, you'll have less problems with clamps getting stuck in the joint. This is one of Danny Gabbard's fender panels. 1957 lowlight Ghia
