Adjustable Wrench
Adjustable Wrench has adjusting wheel which changes distance between jaws so that different sizes of nuts can be removed.
C Clamp
C Clamp is used to hold and align different piping parts together for welding.
Center Punch
Center Punch is used to make markings along cutting line for welding purpose.
Chain Block
Chain block can lift weight 30 times of pulling force applied on lifting chain with help of internal gears.
Chalk Line
Chalk line is used to mark long straight lines on pipes or metal plates.

Combination Wrench
Combination Wrench have one end open and other box or circular type and are used to loosen or tighten the nuts.
Come Along Tool
A come-along (comealong, come-a-long, power puller) is a hand operated winch with a ratchet used to pull objects.
Compass or Divider
Compass or Divider can be used for inscribing circles or arcs. As dividers, they can also be used as tools to measure distances
Contour Marker
Contour Marker is used to mark circular marking on pipe periphery at various angles for cutting purpose.
Flange Two Hole Pins
Flange two hole pins are used to make sure that any two flange holes are perfectly aligned to horizontal.
Various Shape Files
Files of various shapes are used to remove burrs from cut edges of pipes and fittings. Can be also used to remove rust form small places.
Flat Screw Driver
Flat screw driver is used to multiple purposes apart from using to tighten/loosen screws.
Fork Lift
Fork lifts are used to lift and transport heavy piping items from one place to another in workshop.
Grinders are used to remove rust from pipes and fittings ends before welding so that no defects occur in welds.
Hammer Wrench
Hammer Wrench has thick heavy end which can be hammered to provide extra force to loosen bolts if they are stuck.
Hydraulic Crane
Hydraulic Cranes are used to lift and move heavy piping items from one place to other in a workshop.

Nylon String
Nylon String can be used to do various long markings on pipes and any other markings.
Oxyacetylene Cutting Kit
Oxyacetylene Cutting Kit is used to cut large size pipes, elbows and steel plates using oxyacetylene flame.
Pencil Grinder
Pencil Grinder is used to clean surfaces off rust in tight places such as inside small pipes or holes.
Pipe Bender
Pipe bender is used to bend pipe at required degrees without causing dents in wall or undue deformation.
Pipe Clamp
Pipe clamps are used to hold pipes tightly for various purposes like cutting, threading or welding.
Pipe Cutter
Pipe cutter is used to cut pipe at required length with the help of shear force.
Pipe Stand
Pipe stands are used to arrange pipes at required elevation during welding to each other or to fittings.
Pipe Threader
Pipe threader is used to make threads at pipe fittings for threaded piping specification.

Pipe Vise
Pipe vise is used to hold small size pipes tightly for various purposes like threading, cutting, welding etc.
Pipe Wrap
Pipe wraps are used to make markings on pipes for cutting them to various shapes.
Pipe Wrench
Pipe Wrench is an adjustable wrench/spanner used for turning soft iron pipes and fittings with a rounded surface.
Plumb Bob
A plumb bob, or plummet, is a weight, usually with a pointed tip on the bottom, suspended from a string and used as a vertical reference line, or plumb-line. It is essentially the vertical equivalent of a "water level".
Protactor is used to measure or mark required angles during piping fabrication.
Sledge Hammer
Sledge Hammer is used to apply forces to wrenches or to align things.
Spirit Level
Spirit Level is used to ensure that piping is perfectly horizontal or vertical as required by piping layout.

This tool is used to align flange bolt holes together as well as tighten the bolts.
