I am unclear, is the copper part of the repair or just there to support the weld while it is being laid down? If the latter, shouldn't the weld be able to be finished on both sides?

The copper acts as a dam for the mig wire to build up against but not stick to. The copper can be more considered a reusable tool and does not melt. They sell them at Eastwood but the best ones are made from an old piece of electrical bus. Some have a handle attached. It is just another tool in the welding box for rstoration use.Even a thin copper sheet will work.

Try it on a scrap piece of sheet metal. You"ll be surprised how well it works.

The weld will not stick to the copper. If you clamp the copper to the metal tightly, when you remove the clamp the copper will fall off and the weld on the back will be smoother than the front.
