Stud Gun Set Up Using a Truweld Template Tube Adaptor

This set up is helpful for when you need a precise location for a weld.  The Template Tube Adaptor comes in 1" and 1-1/4" O.D.  Hanlon Stud Welding recommends the 1-1/4" O.D. as it will allow you to change collets without taking the template tube adaptor off the gun.  This method works with CD studs 1" and shorter.
