    Default Quick useful helper

    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.

    Default torch holder

    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. Dave

    Without much effort you could probably make some money marketing your invention.

    Thanks for sharing.

    it's not like I don't have enough projects already.
    never have truer words been spoken. seems like every time i go in the shop lately i have 4 more things to do then i have time for.
    i still have not had a chance to get the shop reorganized, stupid fron axel fell apart on my rideing mower last night. could they possibly make this stuff any cheaper????
    what ever you do dont buy a husky from TSC. its been designed to fall apart. and i didnt even get the cheap one, just think what that would have been like.
    thanks for the help
