  • Diversion 165 tungsten size?

    I need to pick up some additional tungstens, but I'm 30 miles from home....does anyone know the size of the tungsten that comes in the DV165?

    Diversion 165 Tungstens

    Try 1/16" and 3/32" 2% Ceriated. That'll get you going. ER70S-2 filler rods (for steel), 4043 or 5356 for aluminum. Same sizes in filler rods; should keep you busy for a while!
    This is assuming you have the collets for both sizes. Do you know what it came with? I just looked it up, it came with 3/32" Ceriated, there's your answer.

          I'm getting it figured out. I've NEVER TIG'd before, so my first attempt was UGLY. Stopped by a buddy's house and he gave me a 10 minute crash course and now it at least looks like a weld of some sort.
          It's coming along well though....it's nice that the machine is so simple, so I know if I have a problem, it's not the setting, it's me.
          Mainly need to work on being smooth and timing the addition of the filler better. The rest seems fairly simple. I went thru about a dozen filler rods just playing and trying things last night.
          Hey, any idea of the part number I need for the collets? I see a bunch of them.

              Exactly what I needed, thanks Dave. So if I'm picking up 1/16" collets....do I also need the 1/16" collet body as well?
              Do you know what size nozzle is standard?
              Does the nozzle change with collet size as well, or only when you want to change the affected gas coverage?

              I've been searching around for these answers, but coming up blank.

                Coleets, Bodies, & Nozzles, Oh My...The Sequel

                Yes, the collets and collet bodies need to be the same size. They do make "all-in-one" collet/collet bodies, but they're more expensive.

                "Standard" nozzle, pick up a 3/8 and a 7/16 for starters, (they're not expensive), and you can always expand your inventory. The will fit either collet body, as they are "torch specific."

                As a suggestion, go to Target, WalMart, etc, and get a small plastic storage box (like in the fishing dep't) with dividers, and make up a nice, neat, handy and above all ORGANIZED "keeper" for your little parts. Label the compartments, and you'll be happy

                Besides, when "the guys" are over, it looks so Professional!and Impressive!

                Try and round up as many of the flat, plastic tungsten containers so you can keep them organized and separated too.

                    Thanks Craig in Denver for the pic, that's EXACTLY what I was illustrating. A picture is worth a 1000 words.
