The ReadyRest™ two-section articulated, fully adjustable Arm Rest from Strong Hand Tools® (Sante Fe Springs, CA) supports the extended arm while welding for greater weld control and reduced fatigue. This Arm Rest is height adjustable (the support arm slides up or down the mounting column) and swivels smoothly and easily for work in precise locations. Its comfortable, generously-sized arm cup rotates in a 360 deg arc for complete freedom in positioning and instant re-positioning. Its sturdy, magnetic, anti-tipping base plate can be placed on any steel surface and leveled by adjusting the two leveling bolts. The full ReadyRest line includes MIG, TIG Torch, Electrode Holder (Universal), Grinder, Arm and Wrist Rests.
Strong Hand Tools also offers multi-function Deluxe MIG Pliers that are equipped with features to make them more useful to welders throughout the work day: A 90 deg side pull V-notch in the plier jaws provide a handy way to pull wire or grasp small items, such as nuts. The two jaws of the pliers are equipped with both fine and course files for nozzle cleaning and spatter removal. In addition to the traditional round face hammer, these new pliers also feature a flat face hammer for better contact in light hammering. An easy-to-spot bright yellow comfort grip handles fit well in the hand, making them easy to hold and use. A retention chain prevents the pliers from getting lost by attaching to a ReadyRest MIG Gun Rest.
Strong Hand Tools also offers a Plasma Cutting Tray attachment for their Rhino Cart® Mobile Fixturing Station to cut, clamp, fixture and weld on one convenient workstation. The Plasma Cutting Tray supports 100 lb on a 18 in x 28 in cutting surface with 14 reversible / replaceable steel slats. Generous 1.8 in width between cutting slats provides ample space for hold-down clamping. Slats are secured in place to maintain rigidity while working. Cut, clamp, fixture and weld on one convenient mobile workstation at the ideal, uniform working height. The Plasma Cutting Tray easily folds down flat against the Rhino Cart when not in use.
