MIG Gun Holder

I think the first holder I made to keep the MIG gun handy was just a 2” ring of 3/8” round stock.  It had two problems.  It allowed the gun to rotate so I could not keep it in a desired position and it tended to catch the gas nozzle and pull it off.


I now use two short pieces of tube oriented at 90º to each other.  One is parallel to he vise jaws and one is perpendicular.  When I’m doing a lot of MIG work the gun is in the perpendicular one.  When I want the gun out of the way I move it to the parallel one.  The tubes are short enough to avoid hooking the nozzle.
