Simple Tungsten Holder

This is just a simple stand that I use for holding tungsten electrodes for TIG welding. It's made out of a piece of 28 mm diameter aluminium with a 25 mm hole most of the way through.

In the base is a 20 mm × 3 mm neodymium magnet held in place with Loctite 603. It can stand on a level part of the welding trolley or on the welding bench and make it easy to grab a new one when I've just dipped the last one in the weld pool!
