I was getting some water splash onto my torch handle, right on the trigger, which is not water proof or Water resistant. I decided to cut this out of alum (had some laying around) to mitigate this issue (since water and elect switch = headache sooner than later) Simple cut, alum settings of 120/min at 20 amps with a 0.1 pierce delay worked great. Holes are a little messy but can be cleaned up with a drill bit or dropping the amps down some more (maybe 15?). 30* bends on each side (or as you see fit) with a bench bender and the attachment tab was done with hand held bend pliers. I put a little bit of angle on it too so that if I do get water droplets inside it will act as a gutter. Length is 6.5 inch long.
