Welding Rod Extension For Welder
Kevin West, Covington, Ohio: "My 2-ton grain truck had a broken running board, due to the support gusset rusting away from the frame. I wanted to reinforce the gusset with welding material but, unfortunately, there wasn't room to get my body in there and reach the welding area at the same time. So I came up with the idea of making a welding rod extension for my welder. I fused a full welding rod onto the end of another welding rod at a slight angle, which allows me to get around obstructions.
  "My buddy uses a 30-gal. barrel to store welding rods. To keep the rods dry, he cuts a hole in the lid and affixes a reflector-type trouble light. An added bonus is that his cat, who likes to hang around in the shop, can lay on the lid next to the light and stay warm even in the coldest weather. It makes a nice, cozy perch for him."
