  • Handy filler rod holder idea.

    Dont ya get sick of always having to go look for the right filler rod when your tiggin stuff up? Do you get frustrated if you happen to pick up the wrong type and you blow that really expensive one shot deal for the client who is standing just out of arc sight waiting for you to finish your process?

    Well I have the answer to your problems, its simple, portable, and always withing reach.. you can have one for every torch you own...

    If you have alook at the attached photo, you too can own one of thse really neat filler rod holders and make your life soooooo much easier............................................ .......

    patent pending.

                    and to think i waisted all that time labeling separate tubes to keep filler in, and all i had to do was label the torch and stick the filler to it.

                          As always I got a good laugh out of one of your post. If you wan't to try somthing fun take a metal coffee can or large dia. pipe with one end caped off and make a hole about 1" up from the bottm on the side. Fill it to about 1/2" full of flower and stick a burning candle inside. Take an unlit cutting torch and stick the tip inside the hole and hit the cutting lever. O, and make sure you do it out side (unless you have 20' ceilings). It's realy awsome at night.
