The Tig Finger Heat Shield

The Tig Finger Heat Shield™ lets you prop right next to your weld as it slides along smoothly. I know as a welder that sometimes making a pretty weld means more than a little pain. I have burns up both my arms that attest to that fact. With a Tig Finger, you won’t have to sacrifice burned fingers for a pretty weld. (… and by the way – you’ll lose it before you’ll wear it out.)

    I have got to say-
    These Tig fingers are LIFE CHANGING!!!!!!!! I honestly wonder why every welding-school and supply store doesnt have boxes of these. Being able to prop onto anything, and get support when you need to it just awesome. Once you use one, you will NEVER Tig without one. whether you are having problems learning tig at school, or are a 20 year welding yet, you will fall in love with these.

    Just got one to try it out. You know see what all the hype is about. Let’s just say I will be ordering a few more very soon, and so will my co-workers. Note: Do NOT let coworkers try this out unless you have more than one. Took forever for me to get it back”. Impressed with the fast shipping also. I hate waiting for a new toy.

    Been having a tough time with TIG welding. I’ve only been doing it for a few weeks at the local College. I found your site quite by accident, watched some video’s and ordered 3 TIG fingers. Best improvement I’ve had in a single day!!!!! I was about to give up on TIG welding. I used the TIG fingers and I had far better torch control and hand positioning using them. Now, Im excited to keep on practicing and learning. Thanks man.

  7. Laszlo on April 4, 2013 at 4:52 PM

    Hi Jody,

    I ordered the tig finger almost a year ago.I have used it since then almost everyday mostly on aluminum as it gets hot really quickly. great product. it is worth every penny.

    best wishes
    from the UK.

  8. Jason Feik on March 21, 2013 at 9:18 AM


    Wow! Great product! I’ve been teaching myself how to TIG weld along with your videos so I figured for all your work I would buy a couple TIG Fingers. I can actually finish a bead without my hand burning. Anyone on the fence about buying these, you won’t be disappointed.

      hey jody,
      I absolutely LOVE the tig finger i’ve purchased a few and also recomended them to a few of my fellow students at school. Great product and no complaints at all.I also just want to thank you for taking time out of your life to make these exceptional videos. Best advice as well as camera shots of any video i’ve seen. I’m in welding school and though we have great instructors they cant always be right next to me when i need help. I always try to work things out myself but if im struggling with anything i just jump onto the site and like magic there’s always an answer. So thanks again and i hope your always there when i need help haha!

  11. Roland on January 28, 2013 at 11:37 PM


    As a 66 year old “Newbie” Welder I can tell you that your site is amazing. I just build my new Welding Table (4 X 4 ft., 1/2 inch) with a shelf below and bars for hanging tools, etc. on two sides; it was my first project. I can’t thank you enough for all of your help and information; the videos are great. Please keep up the wonderful work…


  12. Andy on January 16, 2013 at 4:03 AM

    Bought 3 of these several months ago and gave two away to colleagues as they were so popular!!
    found myself just buying a box of 12 just to make sure i always have some on hand, don’t think i’ll be giving these ones away that’s for sure!!

  13. James L on January 15, 2013 at 7:53 PM

    Love the videos. Ordering TIG finger soon as my work has primarily been Al and 316, all TIG. Nevertheless, I wish you would do a video on millermatic 350 p. millers vids are okay, but would like to see your take on it for when it comes into play in our manufacture. Thanks for your great advice.

    Is there any other way to purchase your 12 pcs of Tig finger???
    I want to buy, but the problem is I dont have any credit card.

    How can I be sure that you will deliver the tig finger in the Philippines?
    Im want to buy 12 pcs of tig finger but I have lots of doubt. I want to make sure that the product will arrive in the Philippines.

    • Jody Collier on August 7, 2012 at 10:09 AM


      Thanks for the note. I certainly understand your concerns… international shipping can be quite a bother. I could send you the shipping receipts for orders I’ve sent all over the world. The Tig Finger is starting to become somewhat popular among welders everywhere.

      If for some reason there is a problem with the delivery, I offer a complimentary “reship” at no additional charge, or a complete refund of your order. I make sure my supporters are happy. Feel free to order, or free to abstain. I understand either way, but I promise you won’t be disappointed if you make the purchase.

      Thanks again.

      Best Regards,

  25. Robin on August 3, 2012 at 4:48 AM

    Hello Jody,

    I had a question about purchasing a “24-pack” of the tig-fingers. I have ordered two and brought them to my welding class, needless to say they made a success, and now everybody wants them… So my question was if there would be an additional disscount for 24 of them. Also was woundering a rough estimate for shipping this amount to Sweden. Thanks a bunch… mvh robin

  26. Mike on July 31, 2012 at 11:04 PM

    Hi Jody,
    Just tried to make an order but was declined due to a processor error. Not sure what that was about . Really enjoy your site, learrning a lot. Definatel would like a tig finger.

    All the Best


  27. Chase on July 23, 2012 at 8:47 PM

    Jody, I just wanted to say thanks. I’ve been watching your videos for the last year. I always learn something,Thus making me a better welder. I just received my shirt and Tig fingers. I must say they work great. Thanks again, Chase

  28. Jeff on July 21, 2012 at 7:22 PM


    I am going to school to be a Mechanical Engineer, and while I was in a welding class last semester I stumbled upon your site. I have learned a lot from your site, probably more (not to mention BETTER) information than I learned from the class I took. I went ahead and ordered three of the tig fingers for future welding projects.



  29. John Alves on July 14, 2012 at 10:57 AM

    Jody, this is by far one of the best ideas I’ve ever seen for welding. I work with an aircraft maintenance company in Orlando, Florida, and that means A LOT of TIG! I’ve tried the old school trick of cutting a stick glove thumb and putting it on over my pinky… But with all of the aluminum and chrome moly, burns were inevitable and horribly painful. I bought a TIG finger a few months back around Christmas time. By far the best purchase I made in 2011, no more burns for this guy! Thanks so much Jody for all you do, any guy that takes time in his day to share his knowledge, and teach this trade is OK in my book. I wish you the best.

    My Company is building three SCWO feed skids for the destruction of chemical weapons it has 384 open root but joints both 316L and C276 all requiring 100% RT. I tried to get the company to purchase the welders some of your tig fingers and they would not so I purchased them my self for the welders and they love them. It has also increased there quality and production. i would confidently say it is the best $50.00 I have ever spent. Thank you.

    Good Day Sir Jody,

    Im from the Philippines and now working in Saudi Arabia as a welder.
    I want to buy 12 pcs of tig finger, but I have few questions to ask I hope you can answer this. Do you deliver in the Philippines or Dammam Saudi Arabia? Is the Tig Finger One size fits all, or its has sizes to choose from? After paying the money how can I be sure that the product will arrive? And last how long it will take to arrive? Thank you very much. I love watching your welding videos..

    I’ve been trying to purchase a tig finger. But your links seem to be broken. I click on buy single and nothing happens, going to check out show nothing in the cart

    • Jody Collier on May 7, 2012 at 1:18 PM


      Thanks for the comment. I performed an update with my shopping cart that resulted in a few bugs. They’re fixed now! Happy clicking.

    Hi, do you ship TIG fingers to Australia ? and if so, how must is the postage ?

    • Tony on July 31, 2012 at 6:53 AM

      He sure does. I have a couple sent to South Australia. Was 8.40USD for a 2 pack. Total via paypal 26.39USD.
      With our dollar like it is you should buy a box full….

  38. Mirek on March 6, 2012 at 4:52 PM

    Hello. What is the price for shipping to Czech Republic (assuming you ship there)? Thank you and have a nice day!

    • Jody Collier on March 7, 2012 at 9:55 AM

      Mirek, Yes, I do ship to the Czech Republic. For a 3-Pack of Tig Fingers, shipping is $9.18 via First Class Mail, and $18.45 via Priority Mail. Since a 2-Pack and Single weigh less, the cost goes down to ship those. A t-shirt is more costly to ship, because it weighs a lot more (about 12oz, packed).

      Thanks! – Jody

  39. Ari on March 3, 2012 at 5:34 PM

    Jody do you mean 30% of the cost of the tig fingers for shipping to uk also if I ordered a sticker pack would I have to pay two lots of shipping?

    • Jody Collier on March 7, 2012 at 9:52 AM

      Ari, shipping is free on stickers, so no problem there. I ship to the UK all the time. A 3-Pack costs $9.18 to ship via First Class Mail ($18.45 via Priority, which is faster… hence the jump in price). Stickers won’t affect shipping at all.

      Wasn’t I going to include a free one for you anyway, as per your request? Haha.

      Best Regards,


  40. codeeen on February 16, 2012 at 7:12 PM

  43. Rudi on September 20, 2011 at 8:27 PM

    Hi Jody,

    had my TIG fingers delivered a couple o’ weeks ago, and really, they are great. Last week I had to weld a tricky steel frame with a couple of really nasty spots, and those fingers saved my behind. Without them and with only my gloves I would have had to pause every 30 seconds or so in the tight spots, with them I just went through the job like a hot knife through butter. Thanks a lot and keep welding.

    Greetings from Berlin, Germany


  44. Mike on September 11, 2011 at 10:02 PM

    The tig finger is the best thing you can have for welding tubing in racecar chassis !! I have never seen anything work this well, no more hot fingers or bad welds trying to finish in a hot spot this is a great product well worth the money. Love the tips on alu.

    Thanks ,
    Mike @ Midwest Chassis & Accs.

  45. MIke Walden on July 31, 2011 at 1:15 AM

    Holy Light speed Batman! I just ordered my first Tig Finger and the thing was in my mailbox before the monitor ink was dry on the PayPal payment!! That was some fasssst shipping Jody!

    This thing is much heavier and better built that I even imagined. This is not a piece of junk folks. This is quality product!!

  46. john grifiths on July 29, 2011 at 11:28 PM

    hi jody, i’d just like to say how much i enjoy your site. i am really interested in trying one of your tig fingers, but i live in the uk and would like to know iff you ship over here and how much it would cost.

    • MIke Walden on July 31, 2011 at 1:17 AM

      If he doesn’t try finding a US Soldier and make friends. Have Jody ship it to an APO mail address.

    • jody on August 4, 2011 at 12:00 PM

      we ship to our friends in the UK all the time. The checkout process will show shipping and handling before you buy…i think its roughly 30 %


  47. Mike Walden on July 27, 2011 at 12:59 AM

    Hi Jody. Thanks for a great product! Love all your vids. I have seen them all over and over. I feel as though I will have a much less difficult time now when I try my first real Tig welding soon. Have a Blessed day!!
