4- and 8-inch Magnetic Copper Butt-Weld Backer Set

4- and 8-inch Magnetic Copper Butt-Weld Backer Set

Product Review (submitted on April 23, 2013):

If these plates had decent magnets, they would be the ultimate choice for working with thin sheetmetal and preventing blow-outs. But they don't which is a disappointment for an Eastwood Product. When I can find enough surface area to get the 8" plate magnets to hold; then the utility is excellent. I find with the length of the 8" plate, I can often hold it in place and get the job done so use the flat plate often. However, if the back surface is not flat, then you will need the curved/multi shaped welders helpers set and then a long arm to hold it in place. Should Eastwood fix the magnets so they have some holding power then this set would be a great product and priced right. As it, quality and price sucks.
