3 in 1 Torch Holders and Stand

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?

3 in 1 Torch Holders and Stand

Postby roberts56 » Mon Mar 18, 2013 1:35 am

I would just like to share this with you guys, a torch holder for 3 which I completed recently. Originally my plan was only for a stinger holder but as I was working on it, I decided to add two more in one stand and see how it will come out. Well I did liked and love the result, it may not be a perfect holder but for sure will be put to good use. :D
All materials used were scrap stainless steel with some ms plates and irons for the stand, done only with a DC stick welder.

Cool. And an ornamental gusset to boot. Nice use of scraps.

Love it! The scroll work, gives it that savoir-faire. Nicely finished too. I see the TIG holder, the MIG holder, what's the fork one for?

Nice work!
I'm thinking the one on an angle is for the MIG gun, the vertical one is for the stinger, and the fork one is to hold the TIG torch?
We need a shot of all three hanging in there!

Yes you got it all right Ultrlow787 and thanks. So sorry about those three torches hanging in those holders, I only have a DC stick welder and the other two, hmmmm well how I wish I have them already. Actually the original project was only for the stinger but since I am planning/saving some money for a Mig and a Tig welder, well I said to myself I will add and incorporate already these two holders so to always remind me of the needed welders in the future. HAHAHA, :lol: Its just like brainwashing myself for these two welders, well why not, I would love to learn how to use these two other machines since I may use it in the near future when doing metal art or sculptures. Plus I have the necessary video guides to lean from on YouTube and the videos I have subscribed from WT&T.com as sent by admin Cody. ;) 8-)

Yeah I can post some pics of only the stick holder hanging.

Do I sense a bit of "steam punk" in the design? It has a Victorian feel. ;)
