No need for a welder in this application.  Duct tape will do fine for one season!

Great idea! My wife is always complaining about how long it takes to cut the grass.

This morning we took down and put away the Christmas decorations. The Eagles game comes on at 4:25. What to do to kill 4 hrs???
I know I'll make a whip finisher. That took about a half hour so let's break out the welder and make a tying vise for my buddy who comes to my house to explore fly tying but has yet to commit to tying flies.

It holds hooks very well. The whip finisher works as good as any other whip finishers I have used and now I wish I didn't spend money on two of them. That could have been an additional 20 bucks in my 401K. Dang it!
