  • Thing made with 1/4" base plate and 2pcs of 2.5" tubing.

    I made this to set on my table to keep my 18" tig filler rods in after i cut them in half from 36".

    It is a 1/4" base plate, with (2) 2.5" tubing side by side.

    Base plate is 6.5" x 4".

    It was tig welded with my Sync 200. Used 1/16" 309L filler. 3/32" tungsten (1.5% Lanthanated)

    I should of came up with a better design.. looks kinda funny.. hahahaaa

      I don't think it looks funny at all. You did a much better job with the welds than I would have done.

          Use a lot of filler, huh?

          2 1/2" pipe will hold "A LOT".

          Nice job, regardless.

            Look through the projects board here and I'm sure you'll find quite a few ideas to use.

                Yeahh, I should of used a tad bit more, but I am starting to become real real comfortable tigging, haven't been tig welding for too long, just every now and then. The walls of this tubing is .080".

                    Filler Rod Holder

                    myistar -

                    Looks good, how far did you have your tungsten sticking out on the bead in between the two tubes?

                      myistar,

                      I wasn't referring to the amount of filler you used in welding the holder up.

                      I was joking about how much filler a 2 1/2" pipe can hold. At 18", I'd suspect each holder will take about 12# of filler.

                      I use a similar setup that clamps to the edge of the table, but I used 1" OD SS tubing for mine. I don't like having that much filler out of the tube at a time. Not too bad for SS but mild and aluminum don't fare as well.

                        Nice idea, and nice work. I've been thinking I need a handy place for the rods...

                          I'm not exactly sure on the measurement, but far enough so I could get in there, with no problem. seemed to work pretty good.

                              yeah, i didn't read that too good probably, i wanted to make something that day, i told myself, these tubes are fairly big for storing some filler in it. At the time, i didn't think i had any smaller, like 2 inch, but now i'm typing this, i did have some 2" exhaust tubing i could of used as well..
