Decent little tool!
I used it to fill some holes in the floor of an old military trailer...works great, but the magnet needs to be stronger, especially if you have some undercoating that is on the back side of the surface you are attempting to repair. It is cool to have two free hands, and to not have to be a contortion artist!!
Great for using on top of flat surfaces
the Magnetic Hole Plug Welding Tool is great for using on flat surfaces. but falls off sometimes on bottem sides or at 90 degrees, if it had a stronger magnet it would be great. I used it on plug welds and seams on my floor boards and will try it again soon fixing a cut up radio opening in a dash.
This is a great idea. I use it often to weld up small cracks or fill holes in sheet metal. Some times, the use of a clamp on the back helps hold it tighter. Using copper as a backup works very well on thin metal. Lets you get good penetration without blowing through.
this tool works great i like it a lot i wish i had it sooner but i have it now and i can place this on the back side of a repair and fill the hole and i can move from place too place faster because it sticks on too the repair panel and stays put where i put it
A great addition to all of my welding gear!
This little tool is super for plug welding anything where it's difficult to reach and weld at the same time. Even for close up work it allows you to have a free hand to steady your mig handle. I love it!
Great copper backing
I just bought this magnetic copper backing & it has already paid for itself. It makes holding a copper backing hands free for places that clamps cannot get to. I'm very happy I came across this guy!
I recommend this product.
Greatest thing next to sliced bread !
This is a great tool.Works great for welding trim holes as well as leading them.I just place aluminum foil over the copper pad and lead away,no problems.Thanks Eastwood!
