  • Holder for TIG Torch 1

    Alexander (AlexGo) showed a TIG torch holder on the following posting:

    http://www.hobartwelders.com/weldtal...ghlight=holder

    *This is shown below as TIG Torch Holder 1.
    *I modified this in SolidWorks to come up with my version of this design: TIG Torch Holder 2.
    *I decided that I didn’t like the filler rods sticking up from the pipe so I eliminated it, and added a place for filler rods on the bottom. This resulted in: TIG Torch Holder 3.
    *I built this design which is shown as: TIG Torch Holder 3a.

    Holder for TIG Torch 2

    *I tried it out TIG Torch Holder 3a and found that my monster gas lens for welding stainless steel didn’t fit. I also didn’t like fitting the nozzle into the hole while welding so I came with: TIG Torch Holder 4. This design uses an aluminum angle instead of a hole to hold the torch.
    *I built this design which is shown as: TIG Torch Holder 4a. I just tried it out tonight and so far I like it.

    This is a work in process so any other ideas would be appreciated.

      Your holders are pretty fancy( you have too much time on your hands) I have been using this design for thirty years ...Easy and you can clamp it anywhere....

      Some people require more attention than others.....Like a LOST DOG and strangers holding out biscuits....

        I like it. Your design would also work well for remote jobs (Not on the welding bench).

          Tig Torch holders

          I am new to Tig welding with a new Dynasty 200dx and I need some projects other then the coupons to practice on, so when I came across this thread I got fired up! I like all three, however I like the later two as they allow the torch head to flex/move, whatever so not to break the nozzle or the backcaps (like mine has done several times ((I have a piece of flatbar sticking out from the bench with a hole in it, I put the torch in upside down) I think I will glue something up next time out to the shop.

          I was thinking an addition might be to epoxy a magnet on the bottom of the Aluminum setup so it could be attached to the welding table or clamped if on an Aluminum surface.

          Photos to follow!

          Thanks guys!

              i like ie BC grab the handle and go. it's pretty much set in your hand when you go to pick it up . sorry the other design you preety much have to pick up with your fingers snd flip and twist to get ready to weld . but of coarse i have big hands to. all my friends at work say they thank god i'm not a proctoligist to

                  If you really want to get fancy, take B_C's design and weld or bolt it to one of those magnetic ground clamps with the on/off switch. That should work for just about anything except haning it from a tree.
