    That's funny I do have a mig setup on my lincoln 110 weldpak and have a full bottle of argon co2 but for some reason I like using my lincoln 220 weldpak .It's just a better welding rig but I have that setup for welding outside an run fluxcore in that machine. Thanks for all the compliments guys I love crafting my own stuff.

    Those are sweet!! I could really use one to mount to my trailer. Right now I carry my gass cans in my truck bed. Great idea and execution.

    Used my wilton vise and me muscles.Was all done freehand figured out the radius on the first bend and just kept bending them in the same way.Don't know if it's obvious in the pics but due to the way the gas cans are made the bulk of the weight is more to the right of center and the left side of the holder is wider due to the built in handle .It fits the can perfectly but looking at the empty holder it may look like somethings off but its not.
