    Default 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".

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