    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...

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