    Fishing rod holder for boat, land or ice is champion of 2013 innovation ...

  • In addition, unlike other holders for fishing rods on the market, the holder's construction makes rods less likely to pull out when a fish bites, and allows easier access for fishers to change their bait after a catch and get back to fishing. A self-adjusting, boat-mounted holder for fishing rods has won the top prize and $10,000 in the Schoofs Prize for Creativity, one of a pair of University of Wisconsin-Madison innovation competitions. "He's in love with it. ". Vannieuwenhoven, who entered a second idea in this year's competition and won fourth place in last year's Schoofs Prize for his electronic "coal" for burning tobacco in hookahs, says his key to success is keeping his... Vannieuwenhoven, a senior studying biological systems engineering, says he was inspired by his grandfather, who fishes frequently on Green Bay and complained to him that fish were harder to catch on days with rough weather and bigger waves. keeps the bait steady relative to the bottom of a body of water, and thus, says inventor Justin Vannieuwenhoven, looks more natural to fish.

Lincoln T300 electrode holder?

When I was a pipeliners helper all they guys used what they called t300 stingers I can't find them anywere tho at the welding suplies iv been to the t300 they have isn't what they used. I don't know what eles to call them cause I was told. They were T300 lol. All I know is they have a green handle and no inisilators on top they were lincoln brand to. Any one have any clue were to get theses damn things from?


I know exactly what you are talking about. That's all we used for cross country pipe. You might try looking under ground clamps. I'm not sure, but I think that's what their intended use was...we used them on our grasshoppers along with using them as stingers. I'm curious now. I can't seem to find them online. I'll add a link if I find them. Certified Welder Added: Man, I looked and looked for nearly an hour online with no luck. The Lincoln T300 looks just like Lincoln's version of a Tweco brand 300 Amp stinger--definitely not what I can remember using. They looked like a large alligator clip. I know a guy I was working with bought a few a couple years ago from NORCO. They have to still be in production, I just don't know the manufacturer.

If it has no insulators then they have been taken off. You could try these sites or ebay. Or do a web search with "Lincoln T300". If these are not what you are looking for you may have to search "Lincoln electrode holder" and see what comes up and look at each picture till you find it. It almost sounds like you are looking for the old stinger that was included with the older buzz box machines they sold many years ago they had a green handle.

Can I fabricate cables for a hobart stickmate arc welder?

i have a hobart stickmate arcwelder, a 205 I believe, that has no power or electrode cables. I would imagine that the power supply problem will be easy, open machine run new leads and a plugin. My question is about the cable leads. the machine appears to have a special plug in of some kind. I have already found a place to buy ground clamp and an electrode holder, but do I need a special plug where it goes into machine, or can i open the machine and wire it direct? Also, if it is direct, how will I know which is the ground and which is the hotwire? Any help would be appreciated, thanks


Go to a good welding supply house and they will have all the parts you need to do what you want, and probably a little good free advice too

Rob G | Apr 29, 2010
Drewfuss | Apr 21, 2010
the plug ins for the welding cables are pretty generic. your welding supplier should have them. if you need to hard wire, it doesn't really matter which cable is which. if your machine is ac, doesn't matter at all. if it's a dc machine, either will work but some situations call for straight polarity and some for reversed polarity. if you don't know, it probably wont matter.

    I'd buy it again! Love it...

    I hadn't "electrically welded" in maybe 30 years. (I did/do have an oxy/acetylene unit to weld with - I got tired of always having to "heat sink" and/or remove bearings from "things.") Then I had only welded briefly with SMAW (stick) - I had several projects in mind and simply wanted to learn to TIG weld. It just looked "cool." After a review of many units, I chose a Thermal Arc 181i. Then I decided to purchase it from Cyberweld, mainly because of price and they seemed to be selling a lot of them. (them = Thermal Arc)Cyberweld shipped it exactly as they said they would.Pro . . .- welds beautifully in all modes (well, I've used GTAW,(TIG) SMAW,(stick) and FCAW(flux core MIG - I haven't used SMAW, just FCAW for the MIG process)- TIG took longer than expected to get decent welds but I finally made a "personal skills" breakthrough- FYI: I just didn't "get along well" with thoriated tungsten - 2% Lanthanated made a heck of a... 4/5 D.

    MINI DC INVERTER

    0 5/5 Fransois - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hot Max ARC100 100 Amp DC Arc Welder (Tools & Home Improvement) Hi, This little machine is probably the smallest DC ARC INVERTER on the market: weights less than 5 pounda without the welder cables... Fan on demand works extremely well.On thin sheet 1/18 inch with 1/16 rods , it's marvellous : not making holes in metal. Very good with 3/32 rods too: put together 2 sheets 1/4 thick in one pass and can't brake it. Lets continue: tried 1/8 rod 7018 on a 1/8 sheet and made a hole at full power... On small projects, it's perfect for ease and portability, concerning my needs. The only interrogationpoint is durability...(It doesn't have the reputation of my Maxtar 150, but works better on thin metal). Doesn't heat at all.If that MINI machine still working after the summer, I will buy another one to put in my other small shop.
