Wanted to share this with you folks. Sometimes we need to weld a round shaft or something back together, but need it as true as we can get it. Introducing the new and improved Vee Tool. Soon the be sold be Ronco! LOL

With this, you can clamp two part in and tack in at least 3 places to keep it as true as we can get it.

Or, just grab it N spin it!

If it needs to be that straight,  a lathe is what u need, not a welding  jig.

 

Definitely a good idea though; )

Never thought of cutting the notch out of the V.  Have used a piece on angle iron many times.  Your tool is better and a lot cheaper than a lathe that only gets used 4 times a year.

Or 

This is for those of us without a lathe!

 

If you have a longer piece, use a longer angle iron to keep it right.

We had a member with a broken drive shaft. This would help him weld it back together!

  I have something similar about 4' long I use to splice pipe and square tube. Bed frame angle works really good because it doesn't bend easily.

The more I think about , the better it gets. Great idea, Kenny. I have run into to some thing like a pipe or shaft that I had a hard time getting it straight to weld. Thanks.
I don't have a lathe.

Good idea Kenny. I have used angle iron before but had access to a lathe back then but not now. I have a 3' piece of stainless I could do that to.

That strategy works very well. If you use a much larger angle and go slow you can  make the hole large enough to to weld it out completely while clamped and allow it to cool in place. You have to go slow so you don't over heat and warp the angle. Don

  I own 5 lathes of differing size, 12" Atlas Craftsman being the largest. I have to admit ignorance here, I have no idea how one would hold both pieces of a broken shaft in a lathe in such a way to insure they were straight and concentric. Since little more than 3/4 inch can pass through the head stalk length and diameter can be severely limited. With the angle getting a larger size is not likely to break the bank. ???? Don
