  • Safety device???

    Here's the story behind this monstrosity. one day when I was working on that spray arc job, the director comes by and see cables on the floor! (I had the MIG gun, ground, carbon arc torch, another ground, two air hoses, a couple of 110 leads on the floor, and it all loked like the Spaghetti Factory! Well, it should...it's a weld shop, right?? He wasn't buying that..the cables had to be removed because they were a trip hazard. Trip hazard??? in a weld shop??? I said to myself, OK you want em' up off the floor, huh? I was steemed! so this is what I built. An overhead utility boom. It has 2 110v retractable reels, two air hose retractable reels, two 480v plugs on the end of it and two high intensity flourescent lights. They loved it! I think it sucks! Try to work around cables dangling all around you. ( ! )
    Anyway I had a ball building it. I have since mounted a radio and a clock in it. Just wait till Christmas!!!! ROFL

              This picture has a lot in it, but I mainly use it to show the 4 x 4 square tube and how I added hooks for my cables for the 304 CC machine on top of my 300 amp Syncrowave. You can see the plant feed for my argon and the green hose goes from my gas mixer (CO2 and Argon) to my CP300 MIG machine. I can mix and combination of argon and CO2. Super handy. The blue and red reels are air and the yellow is 120v 20 amp retractable. Also my weld rod holder on the side of the Syncrowave. 22 places for rods.

                Hey Rocky D... I really want to work where you do- it seems like you have more time to design a shop then to use it. It also is very appealing to because a camera is as important as a welding helmet.... HaHa JPCWELD
