  • Tig Weld Parts Needed - Trailblazer 302

    I want to start using my TB302 for Tig welding steel and aluminum.

    What parts will I need? Obviously I need the torch. I'm looking for a 25' setup if not a bit more. I'd like to get a nice torch with a shorty/rotating head.

    Thanks all. Happy Holidays.

    Visit you LWS, get a tig block, a torch of your choice with a gas Valve, a HF Arc stabiizer if your going to run Aluminum, a peddle if you need arc control. Argon for steel and Aluminum, Trimix for stainless

      Trimix? TIG? Any CO2 (part of trimix) with TIG is a definate no no. 100% argon all the way.

      Trimix with MIG for SS - yes.

        +1 on 100% argon. Could add a helium bottle to your rig...a little more umph for tiggin aluminum.

          Thanks guys. Does that peddle have a cable? Or will it be remote to the 14 pin connector some how?

            You can choose wired or wireless foot/hand/finger controls, with various pin configurations. The TB302 I believe has a 14 pin remote plug like my TB325, check your owners manual for conformation to be sure.
            Miller has a good selection but there are a few other manufactures that seem to provide a quality products I've found so far.
            Here's Millers link for remote controls.
