Some welding project ideas you come up with are naturally going to need a welding jig to complete it. Welding jigs are simple to make and help you weld projects much easier.

These welding project plans are a simple way to make your own 90 degree welding jig for your next project.

You can use any size angle iron for this welding jig. This is a 1″ x 1″ piece of angle iron, but depending on your welding project ideas you may want to use a bigger one.
