The AP500 is our original design bench top welding positioner. Use it to make welding round items, such as pipe fittings and exhaust components a breeze. It may also be used in any type of work that would benefit from an electrically powered rotary turn table. The AP500 positioner plugs into a standard 115V AC outlet, has variable speed control from 1/3 - 12 RPM and a 25 pound capacity.
The driveline is powered by a heavy duty made in USA die cast gear box with solid steel gears, coupled by a steel drive chain and bronze bearings. It comes standard with a made in USA foot pedal with on/off control. The motor control is also made in the USA and maintains constant torque through variable speeds. If you need directional control we can add an optional forward/reverse switch.
The 6.75" x 1/2" thick steel table comes standard and features concentric grooves every 1/2" to help in centering your workpiece. If most of your work is production welding, you will want to upgrade to our 3-jaw chuck; It's auto centering, has reversible jaws, a capacity of 1/8" - 7" and quickly adjusts using removable levers (3-jaw chuck info). If you need to grip square or rectangular shaped parts add our 4-jaw chuck; it has reversible jaws and a capacity of 1/2" - 5-1/4" (4-jaw chuck info). Add a welding chuck to your AP500 at a discounted price above.
The AP500 comes standard with a durable silver hammertone powder coat finish, stainless steel fasteners throughout and a stainless backed Yofab logo for years of quality service. The base is slotted (8-1/2" x 3-5/8") for quick & easy mounting to a welding bench. Including the control box, the AP500 is only 10"W x 10"L x 8"H. The control box is securely bolted to the positioner allowing it to overhang a table's edge to free up even more table space.
