What welding projects are you working on? Are you proud of something you built?
How about posting some pics so other welders can get some ideas?

Now that's an interesting gadget. Sort of like a mini version of a cutting torch rolling guide. Have you used it much? does it help?

it help when you make 50 or 100 tack at day on very thin metal were the distance between the electrode​ and the metal are very important for make the tack and not burn the two pieces, with this you make the same tack every time like the first
