  • does anyone sell a clamp for sucker rod

    I'm fixing to start on a 200' run of pipe fence. I have the posts concreted in and the top rail ran. I plan to use 4 runs of 3/4" sucker rod for the horizontals. Does someone make a fixture to secure the sucker rod on the 2 3/8" vertical pipes, so it stays level before welding?

    I made one that worked OK, using 2 cheap C-clamps welded together at right angles.

      I would think it would be a simple thing to fabricate as it will be the same for each and every post... A clamp around post with a couple of angle iron sections to form a trough for sucker rod to lay in while tacking should not be two difficult....

      In my mind ( a very confusing place) I see something like a "C" shape to go around post with a wing or trough extending out on each side for rod to lay in held in place with a chain clamp....

        You could use a chain with an s hook on both ends, sling it over the top rail, adjust it where you need it to be level and weld it up. Should be a pretty cheap solution.

          I'd use a couple of short pieces, cut and fishmouthed for the spacing you want, and a couple of short pipe clamps to hold it. That will keep the spacing uniform throughout. It would be easiest if you had a helper, at least to get everything positioned, depending on your span.

            I was going to recommend something similar, but you said it more eloquently .
