Mig gun Rest


Recommended Posts

Harbor Freight sells one with a magnetic base for about $10 that holds the torch head (if you use it--don't ask) http://www.harborfreight.com/magnetic-mig-torch-rest-3642.html You could copy it or a better homebuilt is a short tube that you insert the torch head into.... your choice of mounts. The factory one takes into account the hot wire since the Harbor Freight machines are that way too.

I tend to just lay the torch down instead of using either which is really dumb...

My old Hobart mig gun has a hanger hook on it and a coffee can with a little weight in it works fine. Then again mine is off when I release the trigger so hanging it is mostly to keep it clean and out of the way.

Still, that's a nice hanger and my torch can use one, heck, I have lots of stuff that'd benefit from such a hanger.

Thanks for the tip.
