The adjustable KLEMCO Rod Dock is machined in the USA from 6061-T6 aluminum and finished with a Type III hard anodize. The quality base to keep the Rod Dock in position is made from 1/4” thick laser cut 304 Stainless Steel. The purpose is to conveniently hold the ONE piece of filler rod you are currently using. This makes the repetitive grabbing and laying down of the filler rod much more convenient and keeps it out of possible contamination sources on the welding bench. It also makes grabbing the filler rod in a consistent location super easy. This is especially helpful for a job with many short welds. The Rod Dock is a must for shallow welding tables that are backed right up against a wall or partition. Using the Rod Dock is much better than laying the filler rod down on the table between each weld. Another aspect to the design is a cross hole is drilled at the bottom of the port for the filler rod so that dust and such can not accumulate inside the Rod Dock. Also, it looks classy and pairs well with the convenient KLEMCO Tungsten Rack.
The KLEMCO Rod Dock exists because I was doing repetitive TIG welding of many small parts and thought “sure would be nice if grabbing this filler rod in a consistent location with my gloved hand was easier”.
Make sure to always use the Rod End Eye Protectors or loop the end of the filler rod!
