I opted for the foot peddle, pulled the control cable back and stored it. My question is can I remove the torch cable cover? The reason is I want more, and smoother control at the torch. Does the cover also work as an insulator too the torch cable?

Lame question I guess, understand that there is current and gas supplied via the torch cable. If the covers only purpose is to provide a way to keep the torch cable and torch control cable together. I wish to remove the cover to get more flexibility at the torch.
