This is a new case for my torch tip cleaners. I was getting ready to try some aluminum welding when I noticed the flux had corroded almost everything in my storage box..especially these tip cleaners. From the 3rd shot you can see how it actually ate away part of the case . I could have bought a new set for under 10 bucks, but it was more fun to make a new wood case and all the wires were in good shape because they are steel.

This case is made from walnut and finished with clear semi gloss gloss enamel . The wires are strung on a 1/8” stainless steel pin.

Cheers, Jim

Your mind never rests! I keep my tip cleaners in my tool box where I know I’ll never find them 8^)

Hi Bruce. Mine are in the tool box on my welding cart but I should have never put the flux in there with them. I had to scrape, wash , sand and repaint the whole inside…Now they are safe!

cheers, Jim
