Boom-Mounted Mig Welder Makes Repairs Easier
A triple-jointed boom that folds neatly into a corner when it's not in use has greatly improved welding productivity for Kenny Bergfeld and Roger Keller of K&P Welding in Watson, Ill.
  Their MIG welder mounts on the end of the boom and reaches anywhere inside the shop. Because the boom mounts just inside the door to the shop it also extends outside the shop to work on equipment parked just outside the door.
  The boom looks like a TV tower, with diagonal cross bracing all along its length. The two men built it themselves from scratch. The third section of the boom, which is the smallest section, can be adjusted back and forth to get the welder into just the right position.
