Default Welding Fixture, could this be useful?

Drew this up in SolidWorks the other night and have been tossing around the idea whether or not this could be helpful in a real world situation. This fixture here is designed for flat style joints with a Tig Welder. The cup goes in the square tubing and is tightened with the allen bolt. The bearings provide a smooth consitant surface to guide the torch, which would improve consistancy and overall look of the completed weld. I have a few other designs that are all interchangable with this setup for different weld joints... here's a quick screen shot of what i'm thinking of...

No, that is only useful on flat welds in the perfect setting.

Now for a cutting torch or plasma cutter I could see it being somewhat useful other than that nope.

A nice bead takes hood time and practice, enough of it it wil look like a robot..


10 years welding experience, tig, mig, and stick 6g ASME certs, also a AWS CWI.

A mig gun also. But if you weld you know pretty long beads come with time.
I paralyzed my left, dominate arm 3 years ago, so I got my CWI to stay in the field. Well I loved Tig welding so I made this so I could Tig, your limited to space but it gets the job done on simple joints. Surprisingly it welds descent even with me not being naturally right handed.

My First bead I ran in 2 1/2 years with out welding with one arm. Lol

For some reason that keeps reminding me of the robotic marching soldiers from pink Floyd the wall.

It does fit my mig nozzle also, but I was worried about spatter phucking up the bearings!

Very cool! Great job pushing the envelope and doing what many with use of both hands don't do.
