Searshing for a specific single dispensing electrod holder.

Postby Gos » Wed Jan 03, 2018 12:52 pm

Greetings,
I'm trying to locate new or used a specific electrode holder that took a deep dip on me a few months back. I bought it around 1982.

It was blue plastic, held a hand full of 1/8" 7018.
Loaded by unscrewing the top.
Top was cone shaped with a rubber wiper that the electrode would be pushed out of via a handle on the outside of holder.
Had a nylon shoulder strap and buckle. The buckle is what broke sending it into the water.

The darn thing was so handy for keeping rod dry and single dispensing that I would really like to replace it.

Thanks,
Gos

Hey, welcome to the forum! Never heard of a one-at-a-time dispenser. This looks like it might be close?

Thanks, but not quite it.
The original was only about 2-1/2" diameter with a steel handle that would push one rod out at a time through the rubber ended nose cone.
Wish I had a picture!
