    Default #17 TIG torch stubby gas lens parts

    I have been on the search for stubby gas lens parts for a model 17 torch since I bought my new Syncrowave 210. The torch is a lot bigger than the #9 I had, but it seems to take the heat better for extended welding periods and high amp aluminum work. But I find myself having a hard time getting in tight spots. So im looking for some help, I would like to buy the pieces/parts, and a couple of somethings, not just 1 kit per tungsten size. Honestly I only see myself needing 1/16 and 3/32 sizes. On the rare occasion that I run 1/8 tungsten, I can use standard cups and collets. Can anybody point me in a good direction to buy these things separately?? Thanks in Advance.Zach

    Try these guys... would expect that they would sell individual parts...
    you may need to call or email with an inquiry though..
    The whole kit is inexpensive enough at $50... you might consider getting the whole shebang..

    Part numbers for 3/32, Collet, lens, and insulator. All you need now is a nozzle/cup for a 9 torch.

    CK Worldwide. They have about anything you could want. I have the stubby kit for my 17 torch. I also just got there FlexLock torch with the superflex cable. It is great. Check them out. A lot of the online suppliers carry their products at reasonable prices.

    Do you need a different plastic insulator for a gas lens vs. a regular collet body?

    I'm referring to the #9 torch though.
