    This is answer to " perfect diy innovative idea" video.

    To be honest.
    Idea is interesting.

    I personally like fast rod changin possibility, changing the rod shouldn't take longer than actual welding task.

    Rod holders have allways been "wobly" that's why welders have allways supported the rod with finger. Specially in vertical welds support is necessary to keep rod steady.

    Rod holder should have possibility to adjust the angle of the rod.

    Also its possible that drill chuck gets stuck at some point, because electrizity that goes trough it "welds" it from the inside, little cap in some place inside it.. "spark" and its stuck.

    That's why rod holders are usually made from copper, it doesn't weld itself.

    I think that actual idea is still interesting, with a little changes it could be "awesome". I actually got an idea from this. Thank you.

    When it comes to the electrode holder Benard has done ot better for 40 years and are not much more expensive than just the drill chuck would be
    back when I was pipelining and doing heavy equipment repairs it was Benard or nothing for me, one would last through a 1000 lbs of electrodes or more .
    A simple 1/4 twist to the left opened it then the same to the right closed it Change rod sizes open it more or close it more would accept rods from 1/16" to 1/4" (1.5 to 6mm)
    Also if it didn't have a rod in it you could toss it on the work piece and it wouldn't arc out made of industrial Bakelite with a copper nose shied for heat

    Esab has twist-lock models too.
    Personally i don't like them very much, because it tends to get loose too easily.

    I think there should be some way to improve / make a diy version from these models too.

    Mr.dk.diy's model really fixes loosening problem, but i think its possibly that if it touches the workpiece, its jaws welds together. That risk comes when its uninsulated and contains moving parts.

That risk comes when its uninsulated and contains moving parts. "" I agree Tuomas, I knew a guy who used his tig torch as his electrode holder hen he needed to do a little stick welding. I thought the collet idea f those would be an excellent way yo make a holder providing they could be made robust enough to handle several hundred amps fo long periods of time and have the ability to go from 1/16" through 1/4" rods without having to change the collets
