Welding Table Tools: Accessories Every Welder Needs

Let’s chat about our home away from home – the welding table. It’s like the kitchen for a chef; you want it stocked with all the right gadgets to whip up something amazing. We all know that having the right gear can take your welding from “meh” to “wow” – and let’s not forget about keeping our fingers and workpieces where they should be (intact and in place, respectively). So, I’m going to run you through some cool welding table tools and accessories that every welder should have within arm’s reach. From clamps that’ll hold tighter than your grandma’s hug to a welding jacket that’s as comfy as your favourite hoodie, we’ve got the lowdown on the gear that’ll make your welding table the envy of the shop. Let’s get into it!

Clamps: Securing Your Projects

If you’ve ever had a workpiece dance away from you while welding, you know the struggle. That’s where a good set of clamps comes in, saving your sanity and your project. Think of them as your most reliable workshop buddies—always there to lend a hand (or a grip) when you need it.

These bad boys are the unsung heroes of the welding world. They keep everything snug and still so you can focus on laying down those perfect beads without a hitch. Whether you’re working on a tiny piece that needs a delicate touch or a hefty beam that requires some serious muscle, there’s a clamp for that.

And let’s talk versatility—these clamps aren’t just one-trick ponies. You can use them for all sorts of tasks beyond welding, like holding down your workpiece for cutting or even as an extra pair of hands when you’re trying to glue something tricky. With the right clamps on your table, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without them.

Ready to grab a set of clamps? We stock a wide range of clamps for 16mm tables and 28mm tables.

Stops and Angles: Precision in Every Weld

Precision is the name of the game in welding, and that’s where stops and angles come into play. These little wizards, like the ones you’ll find here, are the secret to nailing those tricky angles and getting repeatable results every single time.

Imagine you’re piecing together a complex puzzle. Without the corners and edges as your guide, it’s a whole lot tougher, right? That’s exactly what stops and angles do for you – they set the boundaries and give you the reference points to ensure everything lines up just right. Whether it’s a 90-degree corner or a more adventurous angle, these tools help you maintain consistency across your work.

But it’s not all about straight lines and right angles. With stops and angles, you can get creative and explore a range of configurations. They’re like your personal blueprint for innovation on the table. And the best part? They’re super easy to use. Just set them up, lock them down with some clamps or table pins, and you’re good to go. Say goodbye to guesswork and hello to spot-on precision with every weld.

Check out our range of Stops and Angles for 16mm tables and 28mm tables.

Blocks: Elevating Your Welding Game

Blocks are basically the building blocks of any solid welding setup. When you’ve got a range of blocks at your disposal, you’re ready to tackle more complex projects that require varying elevations and support. Think of them as the trusty sidekicks to your clamps and angles, offering an extra dimension of control.

Whether you’re propping up a long beam or creating a multi-layer masterpiece, these blocks come in clutch. They’re like the Tetris pieces of the welding world, fitting in just where you need them to create a stable, supportive structure for your workpiece. And stability means accuracy, which we all know is key in welding.

But it’s not just about keeping things steady. Blocks can also help you reach new heights—literally—by allowing you to work on different levels and planes. Need to elevate a piece for better access to a tough-to-reach weld joint? No problem. Want to set up a complex assembly that looks like a 3D puzzle? Blocks have got your back.

So go ahead, stack ’em up, line ’em out, and watch as your welding game rises to the occasion. With blocks in your toolkit, you’re ready to build up your skills and your projects.

We have a range of blocks for your 16mm table or your 28mm table.

Tungsten Grinder: Sharpening for Perfect Arcs

Now, let’s talk about the heart of the TIG welding operation – the tungsten electrode. To get that crisp, stable arc, you need a tungsten that’s sharpened to perfection. Enter the tungsten grinder, the tool that’ll keep your electrodes on point (literally).

Gone are the days of haphazardly sharpening your tungsten on a bench grinder, with the risk of contaminating your electrode or your weld. A dedicated tungsten grinder is a game-changer, giving you the perfect angle and tip every time. It’s like having a pencil sharpener for your welder – quick, easy, and consistent.

With the PerfAngle™ Tungsten Grinder, you can dial in the grind angle to match your application, creating the optimal point for your welding current. This precision leads to better arc control, improved puddle control, and a superior finished weld. 

The PerfAngle has a removable clear perspex cover which is sealed via an o-ring, This keeps all the harmful tungsten dust contained during grinding and allows for safe disposal of the dust. 

And for you guys working on food-grade and high tensile ticketed welds, because it’s dedicated for tungstens only (unlike the usual grinding wheel you use for everything) it causes far less contamination in your welds. 

So, if you’re serious about stepping up your TIG game, investing in a PerfAngle™ Tungsten Grinder is a no-brainer. It’s the kind of tool that once you start using it, you’ll wonder how you ever welded without it.

Silicon Tig Purge Plug Kit: Ensuring Clean Welds

When you’re diving into the world of TIG welding, especially with materials like stainless steel tube, controlling the atmosphere around your weld is crucial. This is where a Silicone Tig Purge Plug Kit becomes your best friend. It’s all about keeping those welds clean, shiny, and free from oxidation.

Purge plugs are the unsung heroes that ensure your weld’s backside is as protected as the front. They block out the air and let you fill the space with an inert gas, usually argon, to shield the weld pool from those pesky contaminants that can lead to discolouration and compromised weld integrity.

With a set of KO Quick Plugz silicone purge plugs, you’re equipped to handle a variety of pipe sizes, ensuring a snug fit and a proper seal for pipes ranging from 1 to 4 inches. They’re reusable and heat-resistant, and they come in handy for hobbyists and pros who demand clean, professional-grade welds every time. Included in the kit is a 5m hose with a quick connector that connects easily to the 5/8 UNF regulator fittings built into each plug – one-handed operation is very easy!

So, whether you’re working on a custom exhaust, a brewery setup, or any project where appearance and purity are paramount, don’t skimp on the purge. A KO Quick Plugz silicone purge plug kit is a small investment that pays off big in the quality of your welds.

Welding Jacket: Combining Comfort and Protection

Let’s face it, welding can be as tough on the welder as it is on the metal. Sparks fly, heat radiates, and without the right protection, you’re just a sitting duck for all kinds of discomfort. That’s where a solid welding jacket comes into play, merging safety with the kind of comfort that’ll make you forget you’re wearing it (well, almost).

A good welding jacket isn’t just a barrier between you and the fiery bits; it’s your personal shield. It’s made from flame-resistant materials that can take the heat without breaking a sweat. And we’re not talking about those stiff, heavy coats of yesteryear. Today’s jackets come in lightweight, breathable fabrics that won’t leave you feeling like you’re in a sauna.

The KO FlexHoodie™ is designed with the welder’s movements in mind. You’ll get full range of motion for reaching, bending, and stretching without the jacket riding up or getting in the way. The jacket comes with goat skin sleeves for extra protection where you need it most, while keeping the rest of you cool with a flame-retardant cloth body. These welding jackets are lightweight and designed to be worn all day. They are a similar weight to a fleece hoodie!

So, whether you’re grinding away on a summer day or burning rods when it’s chilly out, a good welding jacket will keep you covered—literally. After all, you can’t do your best work if you’re not comfortable and safe.


In conclusion, equipping your welding workshop with the right tools and gear is not just about efficiency; it’s about transforming the way you work. From the steadfast grip of clamps to the precision of stops and angles, the elevation offered by blocks, the sharpness provided by a tungsten grinder, the cleanliness ensured by a silicone purge plug kit, to the essential protection of a welding jacket—each item plays a pivotal role in your welding process.

These tools are not mere accessories; they are the unsung heroes that can make or break the quality of your work. They allow you to take on more complex projects with confidence, ensure your safety, and enhance your overall welding experience. By investing in these key pieces, you’re not just buying tools; you’re investing in your craft and your future as a welder.

Remember, a well-equipped welder is a prepared welder. So, take the time to assess your needs, do your research, and choose the tools that will elevate your welding game to the next level. Happy welding!

AlexKO Welding Tables – Owner

Born and raised in Ocean Grove, Victoria, I’ve always loved working with my hands. During High School, welding became my passion. For over a decade, I’ve been at the heart of the welding industry, mastering techniques from structural steel to custom fabrication. My expertise led to the creation of “KO Welding Supplies” in 2018, a trusted supplier for welders and fabricators across Australia and New Zealand.

Recognising the need for a superior welding table, in 2021 I innovatively tested and launched the KO Welding table. Its precision and adaptability surpassed anything I’d used before. Drawing from extensive feedback, we realised one-size-fits-all wouldn’t work. Thus, koweldingtables.com.au was born, offering customisable, top-quality welding tables with transparent pricing.

Today, we’re reshaping the fabricator’s experience, one tailored solution at a time. You can read more about my experience here.
