Bent Welder Handle

NOTE: This page is archived for historical purposes and is no longer being maintained or updated.


Hazard: Manual wire welding is a primary element in ship construction and repair. The use of standard straight welding "whips" forces the worker to flex the wrist towards the little finger side. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome may also be associated with the use of straight welding whips.

Solution: A bent-tip wire-welding handle (see photo) allows the worker to maintain a more natural or neutral wrist posture than straight "whips." In this manner, the tool, not the wrist is bent.
