New toy needing parts

Post by rich the mechanic on Thu Jun 20, 2013 9:09 pm

Picked up a arc/tig invertor while I was away I think the earth lead from my MIG will fit but I do need a torch for it http://www.machinemart.co.uk/shop/range/guid/F10B2442-5334-4FC4-9745-373B46C9BA78?da=1&TC=SRC-tig Machine Mart do this but it's over 7 times the cost of the invertor any one got any better places to shop.

It's way more than the invertor which I paid £15 for think I'm going to make my own torch up by building the bits unless I get lucky, what size tungston do you use and what amp rating is yours all the welders at work are for much thicker stuff in normal use and water cooled torches as mine is for air cooled and portable 140 amp max.

Mines a Rockworth, wee cheapy from B&Q. 135amp, scratch start, does me for all I use it ( tbh I use the arc function more than the tig cos argon is dear Wink )
It works eell enough for me and was £120 delivered

Do you have a pic of the torch? including the conectors, also have you considered selling the torch I picked mine up as it's a portable unit as my mig is very bulky.
