Default The Mother of all rotary weld clamps. Who said that?

Well, It's not my fault..

Someone on here was looking for ideas for a rotary clamp..

I have 2 of the tweco smaller versions on hand and they get used regularly.. Just make it easy to put the Cclamp work clamp with the cables from tugging..

Anyhow, after the other persons thread. I get my daily updates from Ebay and wouldn't you know it..

They have the Mother of all the rotaries they make up for a decent price.. Usually these things cost as much as a small car.. But this one was pennies on the USD..

Do I need it NOPE.. Did I really even want it NOPE.. Then why did it end up at my Shop??????????


To good of a deal to pass up.. I don't know..

Heres the pic's.. It said used, but it is new.. I paid 69.99 total..

The insanity..

And One more pic..

If anybody is unsure of how it's used.. It can be used 2 ways..


The steel collar you see with the lock bolt gets welded directly to the object. Then this thing gets screwed in and you can use the long bar to turn the whole thing..

Or you drill and tap a hole and thread this thing into it. I'll take a picture of the threaded portion.. forgot to do it earlier.

That's a nice little clamp you have there but here is a pic of the real mother of all swivel clamps. It was donated by a friend and is brand new, solid brass but to heavy to carry around. It will most likely be here at the big sale. I would like to know what it would cost to buy it but I can't find a name on it.

Okay, so you want to bring out the big guns huh.. LOL..


That clamp you got there is the exact model I've been looking for.. Not because of the high amp rating but because of the clamps capacity..

I believe that was made by Lenco..

Depending on model I believe it's the middle of the road size. And only 600amps.. The Mother of all clamps is 800amps.. So there..

The smaller units are 600amp Tweco rotary as well as the Clamps that look the same.. The odd ball is a Lenco.. 600amp

I've been looking for that Lenco you have for about a year now.. If your friend gave it to you.. Then " YOU SUCK"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Page 11 of the pdf #1 Lenco

Page 45 Pdf #2 Tweco

Yup, I've never even seen a larger 800 or 1200amp.

Of course I figured that if I would buy one that big then it would be the Fatha, then the Queena and the Kinga..

If I ever buy a Kinga of all welding ground clamps I think I should enter a mental institution for some serious therapy.

I can only go to 500amps and I don't think I will ever need to go over 300amps.

Now Yeti can do 380amps @ 100%... I can barely stand 250amps for more than a few minutes at a time.. If it's not the glove catching on fire, my hand simply over heats..
