My tig torch is very light and the weight of its cable keeps pulling it off the welding table just about breaking the cup. A while back some guys posted
pics of a torch holder with a magnetic base. I think they were just for a horz flat surface. Then I had an idea to make one but a little more versatile. I took an inexpensive magnetic base, for dial indicaters, took the adjustable arm off leaving the tightening knob on. I then formed a piece of 3/8 round which fits the bore on the base to hold my torch. It can hold your torch or mig gun in just about any position and on round as well as flat steel. This might be helpful for people doing roll cages in the vehicle. Here is some pics.

monte55, Nice tool you've come up with. I use a pair of 6" welding clamps for mine, but now I've gotta make one like yours, it's not like I don't have enough projects already. DaveIf necessity is the Mother of Invention, I must be the Father of Desperation!
